Sick Riffs: Kevin Dye teaches you the inventive, effects-heavy solo of Gates’ Shiver

by GuitarDomain

Sick Riffs #75: As frontman and guitarist for New Jersey alt-meets-post-rockers Gates, Kevin Dye employs a host of ethereally emotive tones, but there’s one in particular that he gets asked about on a regular basis – and that’s precisely the line he teaches you in today’s Sick Riffs.

Contrary to the synth some fans have theorized, Dye’s closing solo in the track Shiver utilizes the Boss PS-5 Super Shifter to send his notes shooting one octave up, with the euphoric effect bolstered by a T-Rex Møller overdrive, plus an old-school Boss DSD-2 delay and RV-5 reverb.
