“I wrote the song with John Feldman from Goldfinger and also Gavin Brown and Dave. It was a swampy idea that I brought in to Dave. He really liked it, but he suggested that we change around the chorus. It’s a great track to play live.
“I used a Cry Baby wah on the solo. I think I kept the first or second pass, which is what I usually do. If you go over your solos too much, they become sterile and overthought. You want a solo to be structured, a song within a song, but you want it to sound like it’s the first time you’re playing it, too.
“It was Dave’s idea to put the nylon-string acoustic at the end. ‘Let’s take it to heaven,’ he said. He wanted it to float. I used an Alvarez classical for that part.”
