I’m considering creating an effect with my H9 to get close to the sound of the song Helicopter toward the end – at 2:52. Not the fast picking single note, B – but the quarter notes B, D, F#, B, A, B, G, F#. The beat is pretty fast, like 170 bpm or something. Also, I’m not really sure if those were harmonics (kind of sounds like it now that I’m listening again) – but, the last time I played this I just played out what I thought the actual notes were – sort of a Bm arpeggio with a couple of passing notes. The YouTube video link is cue’d up to 2:52 – where the effect emerges.
Anyway, what effect do you suppose is used at that point?
Cool song and nice guitar parts!
