Watch the Spy Hunter: 6 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Cubed
Whenever we take a look into the Guitar 2 parts we will do so with the rhythm track once again consisting of the bass and drums only. This allows you a clear picture as to how this riff is meant to be played and may give you some ideas for new Guitar 1 parts--hey, you never know. In Spy Hunter, Guitar 2 has an ending slide into a hanging b7th (G) that could have been played in a more vertical position by planting it on the 5th fret of the D string. Instead, this slippery maneuver is placed as such for more glissando (slide) action as well as taking advantage of the added control from applying vibrato with the fret hand 3rd finger supported by the 2nd finger. In the next segment we'll take this apart and see how it works.
