Watch the Pinch Harmonics and Tapping online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Play in the Style of Billy Gibbons
In the next few licks we will take a look at Billy's use of pinch harmonics, which are a real trademark to his style. So much so that when we think about Billy Gibbons one of the first thing that comes to mind is the pinch harmonics he uses at the end of "La Grange". I know that was the first time I had ever heard them. Interestingly enough, Billy Gibbons was doing pinch harmonics on the guitar predating Eddie Van Halen. Of course he did not take it to the level of Eddie, but still, he did it first!
