No multiple takes, no ‘mix it to fix it’, the whole solo is played/recorded in one take
I have seen quite a few covers of this solo on youtube and some are too exqusite! But then you also realise that all the sections are played separately and a lot of editing to mask all the human elements and flaws that we normally see in a live cover. Even Adrian Smith and Dave Murray are not as precise during a live performance as some of the YouTube guitar players here :D
I feel due to that, most of the covers miss that human element and sound too mechanical. I have recorded the whole thing at one go, no multiple takes, exactly how it would be played and how it would sound in a live performance. I play a fixed bridge guitar so had to do the bend manually at that part where Murray uses the whammy bar.
Guitar used here is an Ibanez rg 5121 and amp is blackstar ht club 40mkii
