    My take on this beautiful solo by Jason Hook. After all these years this is still my favorite 5FDP song, Ivan's vocals are unmatchable. I'm using the BE V1 model here, no post processing on the guitar track. Enjoy:)

    Solo for #themoorsolocontest - Suhr Custom Modern 7 w/ Holy Divers

    I'm no good for contests, nevertheless I wanted to try the New pickups and see how they behave with heavy (not much for modern standard eheh) guitars underneath. Hefty amount of delay and some reverb for the lead, I guess it helped in making the solo stand up a little.
