Does anybody have any idea how Kurt pulls of those extremely pianistic and blazing descending half/whole runs over V chords?
Listen to Epiphany on Intuit to see what I mean - he does a brief one at 0:29 coming into the second A section of the head and then he does a longer run at the very end of his solo at 3:58.
He must be using pull-offs but I can't grasp how he makes it sound so fluid - almost like it's all done on one string..... which it obviously isn't!
Kurt's signature Half Whole descending runs(8 posts)
Sounds like whole tone to me. Could be 3 note per string, only plucking the first note on each string and pulling the second 2 off?
The notes are going so fast I can't really tell what scale it is. Hearing some whole tone too. It might not even be one scale maybe it's just some outside sounding scales/chromatics combined in a pattern that's easy to play. I have no clue how he pulls it off tho.
Any tips Kurt??
he uses a lot of legato
You don't say...
dont over think it
Thanks guys. Callum was right - it is WT played 3 notes per string. I found a transcription that confirmed this.
