WE LIKE GUITARS
Track 4 on the album is "Your Love Prevails", and it kind of crystallizes what the whole project is about. We like to describe this album as, "Imagine Linda Ronstadt fronting Deep Purple, doing songs by Lindsay Buckingham". (If none of those references make any sense to you, please go listen to this, this, and this. Have one of these while you're at it).
This is a clip of the guitar solo, which is pretty heavily influenced by Ritchie Blackmore. The transcribed bit is something he does all the time, which is to stick an extra pull-off in the middle of a triplet. Sounds like he's quadruple-picking, or maybe he has an extra finger. This was the 3rd take on the solo, and that bit came out entirely by accident, so that's when we knew we had a keeper.
