Is there a word for this technique?

Django used this technique sometimes, and Rino Van H. also does it to great effect... and I’m fooling around with it too, down here in Cuba where the weather is in the 80’s every day!

What is it?

Well, using two strings, you hold one note down (usually the upper string) as a kind of drone while you play a bunch of other notes on the other string...?

I’m asking because I like this sound and I’d like to study it more seriously...

Thanks,

Will


I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.

    I think that is called pedal tones/notes.

    Thanks, geese, I believe you have the correct terminology. i had always thought of the word pedal applying just to repeated droning bass notes, but there’s no reason it shouldn’t apply to other situations, too.

    Yes, that Stochelo lick is another good example of the same idea, Buco, but I actually was thinking more along the lines of what Django plays as the intro for “Night and Day”...

    Internet access here is pretty limited but I’ll post more about this when I get back home later this week...
