Prime Cuts: Dimebag Darrell Chooses His 12 Favorite Tunes in 1993 Guitar World Feature
In 1993, Pantera's six-shooting Texas tornado pumped up his 12 favorite tunes.
ALBUM: Lights Out (Chrysalis, 1977)
GUITARIST: Michael Schenker
"This song is played in F#, my favorite key to wail in. It's like E — it's real common, but you can't beat it. You can write every song on an album in E and not hurt a thing. Your straight E to F# is pure power, and playing leads in F# is awesome because you can do it down in the second fret position. Tunes like 'Lights Out' showed me how to do that.
"The rhythm section behind the lead in that song is really driving — it's fire, it's guts, it's live, it's totally jamming! We try to maintain that in Pantera. Even though we don't use a rhythm guitar track behind my leads, Rex and Vinnie keep things going when I solo — like a rhythm section lead behind my lead”
