What does this sound like ?
« on: May 25, 2019, 08:36:34 pm »
This is bugging me. Listen to the sound of this solo between 4:15 and 4:20. It's not the tune but the slightly atonality of it really reminds me of something but I cant put my finger on it.

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Is it still bugging you, cos it's bugging me too?
There's no vibrations, but wait.

Sounds a lot like Dave Gilmour's style.

I had a similar thought.

She's imitating slide guitar by playing double-stopped 6ths, so maybe think of the slide repertoire (common enough in country, too).  There's also a Beatles track with a similar bit, maybe Two Of Us Going Nowhere, but I'm not sure.

Check the intro: it doesn't rise  (from 4th to 5th) like in the OP but the sound is very reminiscent.

ETA!

Steve Cropper does exactly the move in at least one of Otis Redding (all stand, please)'s songs.  I'll try and pinpoint it.

Try Soul Man by Sam and Dave - Steve Cropper does the move on this lots.

I've had it going around in my head all weekend and wonder if it might also owe something to this

The instrumental really gets going from about 4.15.

Dont think so but Richard Thompson yes:

I am beginning to think its one of those licks that's been used by loads of people and that's why it sounds familiar.

I've been listening to quite a bit of Chris Rea's stuff lately, wouldn't sound amiss in some of those.  Also some of the early Dire Straits stuff
