Just wrote this one today. While a love song, I wanted to be careful about the lyrics because it’s easy to get cheesy. But at the same time, I didn’t want to get really cerebral like Sting because I can’t do it as well – sounds way too formal and contrived, whereas Sting can almost always pull that stuff off.
For equipment I used:
Fender Stratocaster for main rhythm riff (set to middle/bridge position)
PRS SE Soapbar II for the solo (used the bridge pickup and ran it through my vibe pedal).
Mic’d my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. I just love that amp!
