The anti solo

What's Hot
TheMarlinTheMarlin Frets: 5357
I listen to a lot music via ‘BBC Six Music’, and stumbled upon a band called Christian Fitness, and their new song ‘Male Guitarist’. 

I love the duo guitar solo in there.  It’s not what you would expect from a song like this, clean, a half a dozen notes or so, no runs or arpeggios, an anti-solo. 

I thought it was a parody at first, but the more I’ve heard it, the more I find It quite refreshing. A cracking song. 

What do you think?

    We’ll, it’s very different from what you would expect in a song like that, very simple, and quite charming.

    Nice tone. Shame about the rest of the song.

    For some reason I wanted to like it but half way through I asked myself WTF is going on here. Answers please on a £5 note.

    Sounds like an arrangement. A little bit too self-conscious

    I was expecting something a bit more, well, interesting from your description. I guess it’s a good use of dynamics to go quiet on the guitar interludes but I don’t think it’s particularly radical. 


    Lots of interesting suggestions of non traditional solos recently in this discussion:
