I play three instruments, and for me, it's always been about complimenting.
Edie Van Halen plays a solo, it;'s bathroom time for me. I want melody, I want the lyrics. I want to sing along. I want to think about a time in my life.
I don't want to sit there and clap along to somehting that I have no idea what I'm clapping to. Always been that way.
And it's great that you like the instrumentation. It really is.
