Re: Bluegrass

Glad you like the song. I guess I'd been thinking about bluegrass licks in D shapes (it's in E major, but capo 2 so D shapes), runs and turnarounds and so on. The solo is an amalgamation of a bunch of different licks I've been playing with over the last few years. Definitely the hardest bit of guita...

Re: Must-See Documentaries

Yep, seen em. We have a fair amount of time to watch stuff on tour - hurry up and wait and all that! - and enjoyed them a lot. Free Solo was fucking terrifying. Murder Mountain is also great.

Re: Rider

I guess it has changed over the years, but it's pretty basic. Just what we need for a show. Some lunch food (sandwich stuff), the booze people want (generally beer, tequila and red wine), a whole bunch of water. Nothing fancy.

Re: Sam Cooke

I read the Peter Guralnick one, I think. Great writer. I love Sam Cooke; "One Night Stand At Harlem Square" is one of the best live records of all time, for me. Love the whole thing.

I like a lot of Otis Redding, and yeah Marvin Gaye is ace too.
