Jack here, Jbf music and guitar lessons, in
this quick guitar tricks, we’re looking at Dimebag Darrels Deceptive Dual Digit Delay
Dabbling During, Deliciously Delightful Dittys, Decisively known as, Walk by Pantera- that
tappy bit, where he plays the same note, makes it sound like a delay. So, by the end of this
tutorial you should have a clear idea of how he achieves this sound, know how to do it
and have some licks you can use to expand upon this technique. Alright, first up the lick and basic technique. Tap this 2nd fret on the G string; or pull
off to it and slide up the fretboard. While your right hand slides up, get your left hand
ready and hammer on the same note from nowhere. There’s bound to e a bit of string noise,
so either bring your 1st finger in, or bring your thumb round; it’s just really lightly
touching the strings, which will help stop them ringing out. But, then slide your left
hand up the fretboard, get the right hand ready to tap again; and repeat. Keeping the timing
hammer/tap pressure and where you slide to as similar as possible will help it sound
as much like a delay as possible. Use your ears and try to mimic wat you’ve just heard.
Compression and gain will help get a steady sound, but a solid tap and hammer is going
to get the best and most consistent results. If it’s soudning weak, try using the tip
of your finger, and/or imagaine your finger is trying to go through thr fretboard, rather
than just make contact with it. The figner tip, will recduce the amount of force you
need and thinking about going further than the fretboard should help dial in how much force
you need to use. Alright, so what else can we do with this?
Well, we could lead with the lefthand, rather than tap, slide downward out of the note;
rateher than up; and go up a scale as well. All these next examples will be in B minor.
And if that doesn’t sound like a flashy enough tapping trick check out this Steve
Vai licks to impress . So Bars 1 & 2 here. And slower In bars 3 & 4 I’ve gone for a very similar
idea, but applied the technique to an arpeggio; a B minor. For more on minor arpeggios check
out that tutorial. And I mean you could add another guitar, like a hamrony part to this,
or stick a delay on at 16th notes or a dotted measure for an even more delay’d type sound.
This trick is pretty handy if you maybe have a a small lick of part of a solo that uses
delay like this and that’s the only time you stomp on the pedal- it will save you a
bit of pedal board realestate- if aslo just looks quite cool! And the final 2 ideas, of
thi hopefull very speedy quick trick: chords, in this case dyads and bending. Ok, so not to get too much into any music
theory, but this is outlining a B minor chord; If you want some jam tracks in b minor to
try these out on check out that playlist ; But think of this bar shape; we have 5th & Root,
then b3rd & 5th. In theory, you could do power chords, 3, or even 4 note chords and all sorts
of different shape; getting the left hand’s strength and right and strength and finger
positions will likely take a bit of learning though ! And in bars 3 &4 here we have a semi
tone benign idea Here, you might want to flick the finger your tapping with through the B
string for a stronger sound; so I’m plucking the 14th fret, bending it, muting that string
as I tapping the 18th fret on the G string. Bend that a semi tone; trying
to mimic the previous bend on the 14th fret. Then either hammer on the 14th fret on the
B string again. Or, flick your tapping finger off from the 18th fret and through the b string.
That was Darrell Lance Abbott aka Dimebag Darell’s delay trick, this was been quick
guitar tricks; that’s the playlist there. For more Dimebag tricks check out this tutorial.
