PhilEdwards Posted May 11, 2013 Share Posted May 11, 2013 (edited) I'd be grateful if an Anglo player, in particular, would take a listen to and give me their opinion on what Bellamy was playing. It's a simple song with three or maybe four chords; if you played a chordal accompaniment as written you'd end up with something very drone-y and sluggish, and quite unlike this performance. On the other hand, there are chords involved - although the accompaniment follows the melody quite closely, it sounds as if he's playing dyads or triads more or less throughout. I'm just at a loss to work out what the chords were, or how to produce a similar effect (I play an English, just to complicate things). Is it just a case of playing the melody line with added thirds? Any thoughts? Edited May 11, 2013 by PhilEdwards Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
