As guitar players, we all have things we can refer to as our "bag of tricks". For some of us, it's the minor pentatonic scale, for others it's a certain tuning or go-to amp/pedal tone, for others it's adding in something simple and quick like a whammy bar dive. And let's face it, some of us reach into said bag a LITTLE too much!
Arguably, certain excess is fine, I mean just listen to any BLS song and tell me you don't fully enjoy the constant onslaught of pinch harmonics that Zakk Wylde always delivers! I personally never get tired of that! Utter excessiveness almost instantly leads to comedy however, and YouTube sensation Jared Dines has a new video out to showcase 10 simple guitar tricks that are guaranteed to make you sound more awesome than you really might be. I mean, as guitarists, we all know THAT guy, hell we might even BE that guy! And in this video there are ten of those guys. Which one are you? Be honest! Enjoy!
