  • Huw Lloyd Tabs - Hawkwind

    I've been searching the internet high and low for complete guitar tabs (including Huw's gorgeous solos) for Hawkwind. The thing I've found is one by some guy called hmmm... "UncleDes", who I know quite well, and is OK, but not a real muso like, say ThingFish.

    I've asked this before, but does Hawkwind have an issue with tabs? I've asked on a forum and got no response.

    Even better, besides the HuwLL website clips and bits off Youtube: what is the best resource for learning his guitar style? He never seems to play "bluesy", so it's tough to busk his solos if that is where your fingers tend to drift.

      Haha!
      Fine bit of tabbing there my man cheers
      Just went on a quest round some tab sites and you are right.The only half decent one i could find that wasnt just a chord chart was a half notated effort of 5th second of forever on Tab Robot.
      Have had to work out various Huw solos in the past(the lazy way!)and i find he favours(for his runs e.g living on a knife edge)the dominant 7th(or mixolydian)scale.
      Couldnt agree more on your guitar hero quote
      Real Muso! Moi!!
      I humbly remain an Uncle Des wannabe

        Hey, TF: At least you can work out his solos! I seem to get somewhere there, but then he does things that my fingers naturally don't. Is he the king of reverb as well, or what?

        Mixolydian, eh? [Frantically goes to kiddies book of scales] ...that's like a major-blues scale (without the minor third and the flattened fifth).
        Hmmmmm! Seems to be working. It's just the regular major scale shifted down 2.5 tones in its root.

        Then he's doing something like a... ummm [looks in book again] Phrygian [?] when he's doing stuff over that middle-eastern riff that turns up all over the place (Angels of Death etc.). Did you see the youtube video of AoD?
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywWlUfaWlS0
        The second chord in Brocks riff: he just takes his hand off the neck! You get to see so much of HLL's playing it's almost a teach-yourself vid!

        What's he doing at the start of Moonglum? I listened and assumed he was just doing a run down the B string and letting the open E string ring: finishing with an Asus2, but the youtube video shows him doing something up the neck with a little-finger-barred doublesstop(??) E.
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNUimsEO2pM

        btw: Idiot that I am, I only just found out there is a feature on Windows Media Player that allows you to slow down without changing the tone. Neat!

        Thanks, TF! Here's a riff you may recognize (just the way I play it, with lots of open strings):

          Hey Des
          Firstly thanx for the cracking links.
          The key to the scale he is using all the way through AOD is in that opening.Youre right this video is like a tutorial(nice!)
          I may have been a bit premature with my mixolydian theory as on AOD he is definitely throwing in the minor third which nicely brings your Phrygian mode into play.
          As for the Moonglum intro(love this track),as you said he is playing high e on the bstring(17th)with a dampened open e and letting his effects do the work.
          I actually saw him play with his own band at a small gig in Perth,Scotland in the early 90s.At that time he was using a quadraverb which gave him that gorgeous huge reverb.
          Tell me more about the slowing down feature on Windows Media.Had a wee look but cant find it.I have WMP 11 but also have access to 10 if need be.
          Cheers for the wee riff,now i have been playing it for a couple of minutes and i know the tune but the name is not movin from the tip of my tongue.Im gonna kick myself when you tell me
          I like the way you write your tab notation.It is so straight-forward and easy for an old duffer like me to understand
          Am off to learn the solo to Zeps "good times bad times" for rehearsal tomorrow so wish me luck although i smell a Major/Pentatonic mix here

            Hey TF: My pleasure, mate.

            It's "Dreaming City" of course. Love that Fmaj7 -> E resolution.

            I think there might be a game in this, but only thee and me would be playing(?).

            To slow stuff down on Media Player, do the following:

            1/ Go to the "now Playing" tab
            2/ Click on the little tab with three green stripes and an upside down chevron
            3/ Now click on Enhancements
            4/ Choose the fourth choice "Speed"
            5/ Bingo!
            6/ Now move the slider up and down

            The tab is Exported from the Powertab software as an HTML file, then I just do a cut and paste with the mouse/cursor. First you have to do the tabbing, though: the software just formats it (and turns it into "real" music...and plays it etc).

                Hey Des
                Dreaming City - Ouch! Not heard it in ages mind you but will remedy that soon.
                Left my gear at the studio so have no strings to work out your tab riff just now
                Cheers for the media player tip i will be getting on to that soon as well as checking out the Powertab softwareThis might take me a wee while though as i am notoriously technophobic
                Also getting on the PC just now is a nightmare as i have my 2 nieces staying(teenagers)and their whole life seems to be that interminable Facebook site
                Pick up my newly re-fretted Explorer tomorrow

                  Hey, Thingfish: Let me know how the Explorer works out.

                  Here's some links to other Hawkwind stuff I've got 1/2 finished on Powertabs:

                  DEAD LINKS!!!!

                  Good luck with getting the nieces off the PC: try a crowbar... jackhammer... let me know if you find something that works.

                    Good work there Des
                    Looking forward to having a crack at Rocky Paths once i finally disconnect my new toy
                    You have given me the taste back for tabs which i had kinda went off for a while but it is the only way to get certain solos nailed.Nice 1
                    Oh and i wimped out and went for my wallet (again) as i had ran out of needles for my JC gun

                      I went hunting for Huw Lloyd Langton tabs (various word combinations).... and this thread came up # 1 on Google EVERY TIME: very odd, but I suppose we mention his name a few times. Does this mean this thread is itself the best resource?! [Shurely shome mishtake]

                        I see what you mean Des,i just tried it myself.
                        Mmm i wonder if Mr Langton should be informed.
                        You would think that there would be enough Hawk loving musos out there that we would be able to find quite a few sites that had some.
                        Well Des looks like the baton has been passed to yer good self

                            Just the chords:

                            Verses (and backing to guitar solo): Emin / Dmaj / Csus2 / Emin etc.

                            Chorus: Gmaj / Dmaj / Amin / Gmaj etc.

                            Solo is basically in D-root mixolydian. (Thanks again, TF!!)

                              As ever yer tab is spot on (just had a go!)
                              As to the scratchy effect,the only thing i have ever got a sound close to(but not bang on)that effect with is with a Quadreverb unit on just over medium on the reverb/delay setting.
                              Will have to have a wee hunt to see if i can find out his fx set-up for that period.
                              What do you make of the Mixolydian Des?
                              Its one of my most used scales these days and i find myself using it on stuff that i never thought it would fit!!
