In a recent interview with Ultimate-Guitar interviewer Justin Beckner, Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell revealed his favorite guitar solo. Here’s the statement:
“It’s on my favorite Motorhead album – [1993’s] ‘Bastards’ – it’s a mostly-acoustic track called ‘Don’t Let Daddy Kiss Me.’
It was produced by Howard Benson and he showed me how to do Nashville Tuning which, if I remember correctly, there are a few strings that are tuned an octave higher than they normally would [The strings are still tuned E-A-D-G-B-E, but the four lower strings are tuned up an octave from standard tuning].
So I did the verses on this Nashville Tuning which was great and I did the solo in regular tuning on a different guitar.
I fell asleep during the solo. Howard tapped me on the shoulder at the end and the feedback was still going, he tapped me on the shoulder and woke me up and said, ‘That was great, Phil.’
I’ve fallen asleep on solos before and it’s turned out to be some of my best work – you can ask Howard Benson if you don’t believe me.”
