ive always been interested to find out where this technique came from or who invented it. i dont know what its called but basically its the slidy diminished triad thing, i suppose the tab for it would look something like

(key of E minor)

E - /16 16 16 16 /16 16 16 16 /16 16 16 16 15 14 13
B - /15 15 15 15 /15 15 15 15 /15 15 15 15 14 13 12
G - /16 16 16 16 /16 16 16 16 /16 16 16 16 15 14 13
D - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
A - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
E - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - repeated


it can be heard in various Jimi, Trower, SRV, Joe B (etc) songs


i love this technique, and i think its one of the dirtiest, sickest blues licks ever! i always thought it sounded a bit like a steam trains whistle or something.


anyone know who/where it came from?

Delta guys probably started it originally, but Chicago blues people love it too.

I assume from a ridiculously obscure bluesman that hasn't got the credit he deserves.
