Sliding pinch?
This should probably be in that official thread, but no body answers there. so im posting it here.

I'm not sure if anyone has seen/heard the Live version of Silent Night Bodom Night in tokyo.

But at ... 0:33 .. Alexi Lahiho, being the god he is, does what sounds to me like a sliding pick squeal. I'm not great a pick squeals but when i do get them to sound i can't just slide my hand down the fret board like he did. How do you do this?

Wow.. how informational. i hope your post is deleted.

ShredIsNotDead 2004-05-13 20:48

Now you look like you are talking to yourself

HAH :uzi:

Shadowace 2004-05-13 20:50

..cept.. you just kinda said.. you deleted it yourself...

ShredIsNotDead 2004-05-13 20:54

not anymore shadow boy

FearFrost 2004-05-13 20:56

well back to your question: Maybe he plays the "root note" as a pinch harmonic, then slides it to what ever note he ends at...

Shadowace 2004-05-13 21:27

could you elaborate?

guitar_demon 2004-05-13 21:54

you pinch a note, lets say on the 5th fret then slide to the 9th fret

Shadowace 2004-05-13 22:19

but for me, the high pitched squeal goes away.. and then i end up with the guitar slide note.

luciferlad 2004-05-14 00:24

Hmm... When he does that, he uses the whammy bar to raise or lower the pitch. He usually does that and lowers... listen to 'Hate Me' before the 2nd solo for an example. (it's all I can think of lol) Either that or he just bends the note to make it higher... :homer:

Shadowace 2004-05-14 11:50

Well no, i looked, and in the video he slides from like 19 to 3 to 5 again and it goes like.. up down up... and it sounds totally awesome... i'm trying to rip the clip out and upload it but it's in ASF and adobe premiere won't open it.

luciferlad 2004-05-14 12:12

K i know what youre talking about. He just plucks the string and makes it play the natural harmonics on that fret then lowers the pitch using the whammy bar, his hand moving up n down the neck is just what some people do when they arent playing any notes.

haha, I hear that! ...What people do to confuse.....

Shadowace 2004-05-14 15:08

Hmm what a bastard... i can't tell perfectly but he definetly does reach for his whammy bar... im guessing he has a floating tremolo... but he slides his hands in time.. i guess just for effect.

Thank you for clarifying that. :)

luciferlad 2004-05-14 15:21

yea... well a floyd rose but floating none the less

guitar_demon 2004-05-14 16:15

kinda same topic but can anyone here sweep and pinch at the same time? is it even possable?

DeathCS 2004-05-14 17:23

Hmmm a pinch sweep thing. Im gonna try that. I dont think it will be that amazingly cool.
Try doing pinch harmonic tremelo picking, it sounds kinda cool.

freek666 2004-05-14 21:28

how the hell do you do that??? :confused:

DeathCS 2004-05-14 21:46

For the down stroke, you would use your thumb to get the PH and for the up stroke, you would use your middle fingure. Its kinda hard but its cool.

luciferlad 2004-05-14 23:52

hmmm.... I dont think I've seen something like that. Ive seen a guy... Michael Angelo to be exact, do a sweep, and when he got to the high e, he taps on one of the frets at like the 26th fret. yup, 26th fret. Hes got an axe that has like 32 frets on it. its crazy... hes crazy... if you have kazaa, download the vid clip 'speed kills' by him. it rocks ass
