In this episode we talk about some of our favorite guitar players who make magic with simplicity. It’s not all about shredding like Eddie Van Halen.
We play a lot of classic solos from some of our favorite bands. It’s an episode loaded with tasty tunes, so throw it on next time you have a 45 minute commute or some mindless task to do at work.

- At the beginning we mentioned that this is episode 3. It’s actually episode 4.
- It looks like Kurt Cobain played the main riff on “Man Who Sold the World” and Pat Smear played the chorus solo in unison with Krist Novoselic.
- The Brian Eno song we played is actually called “Needles in the Camel’s Eye” not “Needle in the Camel’s Eye,” which Lee innacurately called it.
- We realize that Jeff Buckley was not active in the 70s, it just came up as an example during our 70s section.
- Bear with us. We’re working on our overuse of the words “like,” “yeah,” and “great,” “so,” and “you know.”
