Guitar F/X Licks - Monday - Week 5

The digital delay was first marketed in the early 1980s was an outgrowth of the previously issued tape-echo units and analog delays. Tape echoes were warm but noisy while analog delays were susceptible to distortion when overloaded-fine when coupled with overdriven amps but unacceptable for pristine guitar tones. The digital delay employed the newly-developed IC technology to provide a cleaner, more robust high-fidelity signal which brought studio specs to the stage rigs. Players like Pat Metheny and Steve Morse, both connoisseurs of clean guitar tones, gravitated to the rack-mounted Lexicon PCM-41 for distinctive sounds. Other users of digital delay units include Allan Holdsworth, Steve Lukather, Andy Summers, Steve Stevens and many others.

Today's lick is a jazz-inspired melody played with a clean arch-top sound and the delay/chorus effect of the Lexicon PCM-41. The melody outlines the ii-V-I progression (in G major: Am7-D7-Gmaj7), is played in a string of eighth notes, and includes characteristic color tones endemic to the bebop style.
