Any one know how to makes the Skyop sound that Reno does at the start and throughout this foggy mountain rock recording is incredible
Virgin Islands (U.S.)
Can you point out the exact time that he does the lick you're referring to?
My guess is that you're referring to to the mandolin chops. So my answer is to hire a mandolin player.
Some of it sounds to me like he hits the strings flat onto the fretboard with his right hand similar to what (I blieve) slap-bass players do.
It is right at the start it sounds like he’s slapping the strings too, if you listen to the end of the song Reno speaks to the audience and says this is song that has the ‘skyop’ in it and then he does a little demonstration of it, thanks again guys!,
@grahamhawker it is not done on a mandolin because don gives a clear example of the lick after the song on his 5 string
My best guess is he is vamping with the strings lightly fretted. Also the recording is not as sophisticated as recordings are today creating that tin can sound of yesteryear.
I think it's a part of the vamp, out of a ful chord position, pinching 3 strings while letting pressure off the strings.
Clicking/striking on the palm muted 5th string.
