Heavy Metal (Takin' a Ride) by Don Felder

Uploaded by kickinstuff on Nov. 24, 2021.


Helix Floor

Patch is supported by all Helix devices minus HX Stomp.

Description

This patch generates the beginning keyboard sound by using three 3-Note Generators, delay, overdrive and chorus as well as the verse delay using a momentary stomp footswitch. There are a couple ways to start the song. Check out the video at the bottom of this page.

Here's how I do it.

  1. Start the Organ stomp (wait at least 10 seconds for minimum Attack time). You can change the Attack time of each 3-Note Generator for quicker intro.
  2. Have the drummer do a four beat count in.
  3. On 4, turn off the Organ (the delay will keep it ringing for another beat)
  4. Immediately step on the Verse Delay and on 1 of the next bar play the D->E chords and one chug on the open E chord.
  5. Release the Verse Delay (it will trail) and keep chugging.
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 for each bar.

I put a 1-Switch Looper at the end  so you can record the main riff to solo over. If you do use it, I recommend using the Solo Dly for the first D->E so you have time to hit the looper, turn off the Solo Dly (it will trail) then use the Verse Delay for the rest of the rhythm.

It uses the same Fulltone OCD and Deluxe Reverb as Felders rig rundown on YouTube. Enjoy.
