Hi guys - as usual, I have a question about a possibly obscure technique.

This is going to sound as stupid as anything I've ever said recently, but hey.


It's a sort of distortion or some sound in that area, which occurs when you pick a string, and the string beneath it gets touched slightly. I thought it could be something to do with a harmonic, but it's way less squeaky, and more crunchy.

I've heard it in quite a few solos, mainly blues-influenced ones, but the one that springs to mind is Sunshine of your Love, around 2:10-15, he plays this "thing" twice.

Cheers, hope this made sense.

EDIT: Wow, I didn't even put in a question


What is this? If it's a theory-based answer, layman's terms would be best...

i think hes just catching another note as he plays
either that or its doublestops
look up the tab for the song and it should say
it sounds just like two notes played at the same time tbh

I agree with Joe
It seems like a random happening from playing 2 notes at the same time by accident.

BTW, this goes in the "Sort of distortion or some sound in that area, which occurs when you pick a string, and the string beneath it gets touched slightly" thread.
I (still, after everything) believe in Billy Corgan.
