How Can I make this Sound
I Love this song called The Lonesome Rider. It's a mixture of hard rock and bluegrass, I guess.
Anyway, I'm putting together an acoustic version for myself, and want to know how to make this basic sound on a guitar. It's starts at about 34 seconds and then again at around 55 seconds:
It's just that cool little touch the song needs to sound good!
Just happened to think that you might need more info: I'm playing this version of the song http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/v/volbeat/lonesome_rider_ver2_crd.htm
Both of them are resolving? to an E at that point in the song.
Thank you in advance!
It sounds as if the guitarist simply mutes the guitar strings with his left hand and plays a few strokes. Often called "left hand muting".
To do it, you simply make a barre with your index finger, laying it across the strings, but relaxed, not pressing down like you would with a barre chord and stroke normally.
