No Dogs Allowed
is a song of our most recent album 'siN-Full'. It contains a twinsolo in the middle and this endsolo (at the end....).
I've cut this solo in five pieces. The first one is a melodyline on the higher sounding string, added with two other sounding strings for a wide soundrange.
After such a polyfonic start you can't continue with a monofonic part. Bends up in combination with a higher tone on a higher string gave me the best satisfaction after the start. In three different patters it got up to the climax. Listen to the recording, 'cause it gives you more meaning than the notation below.
Bar 9 and 10 are the climax of the solo: Two identical patterns, shot as rapidfire. In each pattern only the first, third, nineth and twelveth note is picked. The rest are hammer-ons and pull-offs. From bar 11 and up I'm walking over a F#, picking all the notes.
Fourth part is mainly pentatonic and quiet walking over F#. Main reason is to go down over the fretboard, to get ready for part five.
In the last part I use the powerchord (consisting of the groundtone, the quint and the octave) mainly rythmwise. Watch carefully the played notes and the dead notes. Listening to the recording gives you a good view.
This solo didn't remind me of some other players or songs, but my musical mind is very narrow.
If some of you can say where this solo reminds you off, please post the name of that artist and the song which it reminds you off.
