A lot of technique in this one. Late on arrival but was I ever glad to stumble on it...one of my favorite solos of all-time. Thanks Chet! Off to the woodshed I go.

That's buzzy, nasty tone. I agree he should back down the gain a lot, and quit scooping all the mids out for so much distant, bumble bee swarm. I think he has too much open string ring going,. Kinda reminds me of Vernon Reid. I just prefer cleaner playing without all the ring under the swarm.

Feeding frenzy!!!:mad::D Yeah I think it sounds s*** too. Bunch of wasps in a jar (but sped up).

YMMV. Naturally. ;) (Guess I'm just too old... I clicked on this thread thinking "Chet Atkins"... boy was that a mistake :rolleyes:)

Haha, I thouhgt it was a Chet Atkins thread before I opened it too. Bit too much sustain for my tastes as well...... which distracts from any knowledge that can be gained for me regardless. YMMV

Of course, I should remember what Duke said (see below). But then I'm no saint....

I thought the level of gain was also a bit much but this is likely done in his living room so I'm not terribly surprised. Lord only knows what he was using. I was just stoked to have finally had a chance to see how he created that wonderful solo to a highly underrated hair metal tune. FWIW, this was the fella Randy wanted to replace his teaching gig at mother Rhoads music store. Chet can play his arse off, no doubt about it. Solo hits at 2:34

"Just bouncing notes around..."

Seriously though, I always appreciate when guitarists sit down a show what they played. Somebody some where is trying to learn it.
