I pulled this off of here last year:



  Here follows the tablature to Cathedral, from the Diver Down album.  The
piece is played entirely using the left hand to hammer notes, with the right
hand controlling the volume knob to make the notes fade in, giving them
a cello-like sound.  Essential to the piece is the use of a digital-delay unit.

Technique and Timing:
---------------------

Right-hand - turn the volume up after the left-hand has hammered the note,
so there is no 'attack', and the note just 'swells' in volume. IT takes
a fair amount of practice to get it right.

Left-hand - apart from the chords at the beginning, which can be strummed
with the RH before fading them in, every note in this piece is hammered-on.

Delay unit - try around .42 - .44 seconds. Hopefully the following will 
explain how get your timing right with the delay...

If you play the following notes -        G   B   D   B   G   
Have the delay repeat the notes like -         G   B   D   B   G  
So the net result would be:              G   B G D B B D G B   G
                timing  ----->           | | | | | | | | | | | |


Actually, if you play the above with a fairly fast delay, you get a cool
Albert Lee countryish-lick :-)

BTW, it helps to tie a sock just over the nut, to help prevent un-wanted
string-buzz :-)

Please excuse any mistakes - I no longer have my ME-5, which means no delay :-(
