Anybody got a band-aid?

How is that farty bend sound accomplished in the rhythm guitar? It isn't overwhelmingly prevalent in the song, but it is definitely a part of it.

Farty bend sound?

Here's how I play it. I 'm on the D and G strings doing the "dick-dock-dick-dock-dickdick" thing with some pretty heavy palm muting.

To do the "dada-dada-dada' part I 'm also using the same strings hitting the E to F# (dada) G (dada) and then F# to E (dada). on the D string. Again with palm mute. It's OK to hit the muted notes on the G string., too.

I suppose you could do the second part on the low E string to make it sound more "farty". Give the F# and G a little bend while doing this, too. I think that's what you're referring to?

On the record this part is played with two guitars. I use to know both parts but I'd have to rework it out by listening to the record again. Sorry. Maybe later if I can.

also remember that most of the slow hand album is recording at a slightly faster speed so most notes will sound slightly sharp when youre at 440.
not quite a 1/2 step but more like a 1/4 step if there is such a thing

I think that's what gives songs like Lay Down and The Core its good vibe

so this is one example where you need to tune up to the song as you hear it and youll see it will all sound better

Urby's onto it when he observes that there are two different rhythm parts going on there. That bend becomes more intuitive when you're only playing the low part. And the palm muting ...

At least that's how my ear hears it.

It kind of occurs at :04 and :09 seconds in this particular clip. But it is kind of sloppy and buzzy at 3:38 in this clip.

Well, I just took your link and when you turn the sound balance full to the left channel you can hear guitar one and the little "farts" or "hiccups" you mentioned pretty clearly.

To practice this move I'd bar the D and G strings, 2cd fret with my first finger and with my second finger do the pull on/release on the low E at the third fret. Do the pull/release and then hit the little A chord over and over until you get it down, if you haven't already done so. Remember to palm mute.

Turn your sound balance full right channel and you can clearly hear what the second guitar is doing.
