Over the years, Matt and Corey have frequently crossed into each other’s territory, but now they have a better idea than ever of their own personalities as players.
MATT: “For me, I think the style that I do best is melodic – not too shred-based. Dad solos! That’s the term I came up with. A ‘dad solo’ is stuff that you would expect from Peter Frampton, or from the school of Jimmy Page.”
COREY: “I like to think I’m ‘tasteful shred’. On the new record, [the song] Through Blood And Dirt And Bone has some really fast stuff that’s pretty technical and precise, but then it breaks it up with harmony guitars and melodies.” MATT: “That’s a good solo project name: ‘Corey Beaulieu presents Tasteful Shred!’”
