Just thinking about guitar solos that have a vocal sound- hard to put into words. Each note has an inflection, a unique shape. The guitar talks! Doesn't happen so much in shred or mainstream jazz- more of a blues/rock thing. Examples: David Gilmour on "Comforably Numb"- strat with EMGs, right? whammy helps. Duane Allman on most anything- killer LP, singular technique. Each note shaped. Jeff Beck, especially on "Day in the Life"- this is off a George Martin Beatles tribute album. I got the track off iTunes. He's playing slide, AND using the whammy simultaneously, I think. Some of those trills/bends are unprecedented, like Derek Trucks' Indian-influenced stuff. Peter Green, Carlos Santana, Ry Cooder. Anyone have examples, tips on achieving this sound?
