Nice playing! Can you tell me something about the effects you use?

melven62 said...

For effects I used a Danelectro Transparent Overdrive into G2D Custom for overdrive and for delay I used a TC Electronics Nova Delay. The amp I used was a Fender Blues Junior.

First up, good work on the first and second verse.

For I don't need to see it to believe it.
E|13---- |-12------ |12b13
B|--13-- |---13---- |-----14-12
G|----14 x2|-----12 x2

I can't shake this fire deep inside my heart. (first two phrases +)
E|---------10----13
B|15-13--12--12--13
G|-----12------1210

The other guitar is doing something very similar to this at the same time - essentially just finger picking the chords.

Now.. For 'Your name is glorious'
E|----13-10-13---8----12b13b12
B|--15---------12---12
G|12----9-----9---12
D|

Not sure if anyone can hear something different \ better. Once again, I think the other guitar is doing something similar, possibly just an octave lower?

Just thought I'd add to the knowledge!

melven62 said...

Colin, I do here something an octave lower but it could just be the rhythm guitar but I'm not sure.

David, I do here MGC do something like what you tabbed and lately I've been trying to figure out what it is and maybe do an updated video. In the verses it could also be the Digitech Whammy on the -1 octave setting which was on the board that MGC used.

Dave said...

Ahh good work deciphering my tab. Haha.

How much do you think the whammy was used over the entire album? Usually it has a pretty unique sound (such as in soon), but I'm just not picking it. That is unless all I've ever heard is over-the-top usage haha - which is totally possible!

Anyway, I'll take another careful listen soon. I'm still quite new to the album, but I'm slowly picking out parts. Always a good challenge!
