MELODIC MUSE by Andy Timmons
Last month, Andy Timmons broke down the first half of his 24-bar outro solo in “Ghost of You,” from the 2006 Andy Timmons Band album Resolution. It’s a fairly complex solo that requires attention to detail: there are some challenging passages built from long streams of 32nd notes, which are tempered by more melodic phrases articulated with precise string bending techniques like oblique bends and two-step “overbends.” So let’s get back to it!
