I’ve closed almost every show I’ve played since 2003 with this song. The guitar solo has morphed and transitioned so many times. It used to be more improvisational but I think after playing it so much I decided to piece together my favorite bits to make a definitive arrangement. I like knowing where to go as a guitar player and it’s always been a bit of a handicap to improvise on the spot. I am always working on getting better though! This outtake came from the “Acoustic Sessions Volume 2” sessions. The only reason it was ultimately left off the album was because there is an earlier version on ‘Volume 1’ and I didn’t want to repeat myself. I can be a bit of a perfectionist at times and have gotten in a bad habit of re-releasing songs (Can’t you tell?!) I will justify that in saying it at least gives the listener some insight as to how an artist can grow and change the same song throughout their career, and it gives you an alternative listening experience. At any rate, enjoy!
