I first became acquainted with this style by listening to and admiring one of my earliest guitar heroes, Mike Bloomfield. His approach to blues runs utilizing an almost “cascading” and “rolling” style was what led me to this technique. I loved the way he liked to make the notes “blur” together a bit this way, and I have found that over the years, hybrid picking is really the way to play these – if not the only way – because they can only be accomplished with a flat pick.

Most guitarists have happened upon this style accidentally, and somehow think it’s just a “hit or miss” proposition as to when it can occur. The truth is this is an incredibly controllable style that has been perfected by many players such as Billy Gibbons, Roy Buchanan, Robbie Robertson, Danny Gatton and many others. I’ve heard these sounds referred to as “whistles,” “squeals,” “chirps” and, of course, “false” harmonics.

The harmonic “raking” technique is rarely shown, and it relates most to the old-time jazz styles of such greats as Tal Farlow, Joe Pass, Les Paul, and many others. I have adapted it to all types of styles, and once you know it you’ll find it a handy little technique that can be “thrown in” to many playing situations.
