Post Can you figure out this riff ? (Infectious grooves)
Hello Guyz,

I'm trying to figure out a riff but I don't find everything in the rythm and notes because it's very distorted.

This is just the 2 first bars of Infectious Grooves - Boom boom boom

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6yWzbldRWM

Hope someone already figured it out !

Kévin.

Dude, I fucking love Infectious Grooves. My guitar is locked right now so I can't drop D but it's in drop D.

It probably looks something like:

Code:
A|--0--00--0---------------3-5~--|
D|--0--00--0--3-5-7-5-3-5--------|




It plays around those notes. In the key of D-minor in drop D, here are the frets you can bar on the low D-string (to figure out stuff).
0-2-3-5-7-8-10

Sorry can't tab out everything properly cause I can't drop my guitar.

Hey Pao !

Thanks for the answer, let me know if you can figure it precisely (if you can drop D) because this is very messy when I play it my way :( and I'm not able to play with the rythm part..

I'm playing around theses notes already but I'm in trouble when it comes to catch the slides and how he has that sound (his playing style actually), that's hard for me !

Incredible band indeed !!

He's using slides and hammer-ons. Is it more a problem of rhythm or a problem of notes? I can play it pretty much note per note. You're right, though, it's really hard to hear because the mids are cut out so bad.

Especially the rythm but combined with the notes to play the same thing of course..

I don't record it because I'm not synced with the 4/4 rythm, I don't see where to put the notes !

The easier way would be to have a Guitar Pro tab to work on it ;)

Does this work? I'm not dropped, by the way. So when I jump from the 6th string to the 5th string, I'm moving a whole step.

At start I'm playing

A|--6--00--3--00
D|--6--00--3--00

And then maybe I don't see the way to play the rest like him:

A|-------------3-5~--|
D|--3-5-7-5-3-5--------|

And this is not the end of the riff !

After I find this slide at the end of the first bar:

G|--5/777----|
D|--5/777----|
A
D


There is no tab on the internet, maybe that's too hard for many of us..

I think it's cause Infectious Grooves is a pretty obscure 90's band. Good luck with it anyway! I'm not good at tabbing things out on GP

Ok, maybe if you have it you could play it slow to me, if you have the time.

Thank you very much for the help :)

I wasn't hearing the pull-offs like that !

It was too hard for me with the distortion..

Thank you MDuCran !

No worries. Does it sound ok? Like I said, I only spent 10mins on it and I don't know if the very last bar is right but the 8th sounds similar so I just copy and pasted it.

That would've been cool. We'd still have GOOMY to look forward to :)

Here is how I ended on it:

G|------------------------------------------3//555|
D|------------------------------------------3//555|
A|--6--00--3--00--5p0--3p0--3h5----------|
D|--6--00--3--00--5p0--3p0--3h5----------|

G|------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--6--00--3--00--5p0--3p0--3h5--------------------------|
D|--6--00--3--00--5p0--3p0--3h5--5b6b5--3h5--------|

Sounds pretty good :)
