Saw Lynch do this last night and WOW, I was impressed. I would imagine that is one tough thing to do!

Discuss....cause we all know how this makes me feel... ;)

Well....George Lynch was having his one hand stretch an octave, much like that on a piano when he was playing, and diamond den said it was called a "Gothic Octave". :confused: I was impressed by that manuever type thing n' junk :)

A whole octave on one string is one hell of a stretch. Even if its from the 12th - 24th fret.

But that doesn't mean Diamond Den can go making up musical terminology... ;)

an ocatve can be played two strings over and two frets up from the original note.

Lynch was probably just putting out the old showmanship

Yah....that type of thing. His fingers were wide spread and I was amazed at the sound that was coming out of that guitar. What is it called then Gar? Just a "octave" or some other special thing? It was really cool!

Doing fingertapped harmonics as he's accustomed to doing probably. Seen him live in 1982 from the 30th row.. other than that haven't really seen him play, so I don't know his style.

Oh, that old thing? lol...
He is pretty cool to see live, when he's not stoned off his ass.
The last time I saw him was in 1988, when he was in a good band..:)

similar to the Steve Morse 3 notes per string pentantonic patterns

Lynch is a monster...got one of the most memorable vibratos I've ever heard. The lick demonstrated on that webpage is something I would wager all of us guitarists have stumble upon. To me it is just a standard metal thang. :D

AH Thank you Ms Q!

Yeah Mr G I was thinking something along that line.. "what riff of his could she be referrin'?"

Just look at the tonal root of each of these 3 positions.. not so much of an "Octave" as much as it spells out a chord, from the root you know...

This may sound stupid and if it does well fuck you too! :D Just kidding...serious question here. Is it a "Gothic Octave" that the White Stripes use in Seven nation Army? How is he getting that bluesy sound? he's doubling his chords some how....?
