Ron Thal (bumblefoot)

Hi,

I've been listening to this guy for a while now and he has joined the top of my guitarists list, he's joint 1st with vai now, lol.

I was just wandering about some of the methods and techniques he uses to get some of those really cool, sorta outside sounding licks, i guess perhaps they're just big intervals and string skipping stuff, kinda like on Q-Fever at: (times)

0.40-41 secs

1:10

Hermit

3:12-14 e.t.c

Any help wold be greatly appreciated!

Your best bet would be to email Ron and ask him yourself. He's a VERY cool guy and LOVES getting email from fans.
Tell him you're re-covering your amp cabinets in crushed red velvet, and he'll be your best buddy. LOL

Even if I had the tracks handy, it'd take me 4 years to TAB them out for ya. :-)
