Is of course the Devils interval yes but how do you play it so it sticks out like a big fat middle finger, like a nose that has been amputated from fungus infection. You can do it!

First off what is the Devils interval? It is the note located in between the fourth and the fifth. If you don't know what that means it means simply in the key of A it would be D sharp. E would be A sharp, etc.

Now,.. you can't simply finger the note and expected the sound as I described, no.

I would not recommend trying this on the high E string but it can be done if you got big strong fingers. Either the B or the G strings. Play a minor third note, that means like if you are in the key of A play a C note and then bend it way the Frick up there to a little past the Devils interval which would be a D sharp so it is a little off key, sharp just a few micro tones will do.

It works great with blues or slow sad jazzy song. Clapton does it all the time so did SRV and a host of others. It sounds extra spooky on a Stratocaster using the neck pickup on the G string you get those wolftones they usually sound horrid but in this case they add to the feeling. It sounds a little fatter too.

If you use heavier gauge strings you might have trouble doing it ,don't do it if you feel any pain. I can still do it with my 62-year-old arthritic fingers but I have to use 8000s gauge strings detuned one full note to do it painlessly. I could do it with 9s too but it feels painful and dangerous.

Very cool riff is to bend a 9th up to a third and then slide your finger while the note is bent up to that major third one fret so you get that evil Devils interval with kind of a ghost note after the major third.

If you want more cool little tricks I've got them if you want scales go to the fish market.

thank you for the correction, I edited it. Yes I meant interval not triad.

This kind of reminds me of a Facebook adventure I had recently. A stupid redneck someone even stupider than myself went off on a rant about Obama and Hillary Clinton and the war in Iran, yes he was full of useful information.

I wrote one word underneath his hate filled misinformed rant ,.Iraq

He didn't thank me for correcting him, he just edited. Iran to Iraq. Hey! That's poetic.

I ran to Iraq and back.

it's supposed to sound terrible but you have to play it just right. If you just play it it will sound like a wrong note. If you place it in the correct sequence with the right tone and touch etc. it turns circle and is the best note.

Feel like making love that's got it that's a good example.

I have a few wicked chords.
You can play
1-5-m6-m9 with a minor3 (the9 can be major too)
Or
1-b5-7-m9 with a major 3 (play Bb E A B then resolve to like Am)
Or
D Gb Ab Bb in any inversion you can find on the guitar. Play it after Am for profit.

I also have a wicked scale
C Db Eb E F G A B

Why would you pronounce it with an extra "r" thrown in there?

You people are the worst. When words have R you don't pronounce it but then you casually throw an extra R into Irarq? You're monkey people, all of you.

I equally don't understand how you have to use all of them in their simplest applications, all the best words in the English language are not pronounced as written.
