“Similar Skin” Guitar Solo
I recorded the guitar solo after everything was done and I thought the tune needed an actual melody rather than a traditional solo. I wanted it to be something that you would play every time. It sort of kicks the song out in a nice, majestic way. I hear a little Brian May in there, or even some of David Gilmour’s slow, spacious phrasing. It’s not about burning at this point. It’s very rare for us. Usually when it’s time to take a solo break, it’s like face to the wind. But, it’s cool to have something that’s a little more worked out. When Gilmour would go into “Comfortably Numb,” he has to play a certain amount of that solo verbatim.
