Fast Echo Double Speed Riff
Here's the inside scoop on how this echo doubling trick is accomplished. I've made it pretty easy for you by laying out all the tab and giving you a drum backing track. If that's not enough, I've also provided audio samples of all the tab with and without the echo kicked in.
As noted on the tab, some of these riffs can be pick blocked for one sound or you can mute the strings with your right hand for a quite different sound. The drum machine is set for 260 BPM (Beats Per Minute). The echo delay is set for 346 millisecond delay. You must set the echo for only one repeat and the echo volume must be equal to the original volume. With all these settings the echo of a picked note will occur one and a half notes later than the original picked note. Be sure to pick the notes evenly and equally spaced. Don't get caught up listening to the echo. It may help if you listen for the bass drum and pick the top (on the tab) or 1st note of each pair of notes at the same time the bass drum hits.
There is a formula for figuring the echo delay based on the tempo. Assuming that each note is a quarter note, and that there's 4 quarter notes per measure, and that the echo'ed note should fall a note and a half later than the original note:
Right click and save the drum track to your hard drive. Then use Windows XP or NT to burn
burn it to a regular .cda file that can be played on ANY cd player. No special burner software like EasyCD Creator
or Nero is needed. All of this function is already built into Windows! EMail me if you need help with this.
