Rush. The Camera Eye solo played on a 1953 Les Paul Goldtop

This is one of my all time favourite Rush moments. The audio is a compilation of 4 takes I did over 10 minutes. I practiced for 2 hours and once recording was over, I had sweat running down my back! The original solo of Alex's is SO intense! It envelopes you with a blend of incredible melodic restraint and tonal fury. The original recording clearly shows the tone was a combination of mic on amp plus a heavily compressed direct guitar signal. I created a multi chain in my new FM3 including a Marshall amp, Hiwatt cabinet, direct chain and stereo doubling effects using the delay and Plex delay block. I hope to have a preset available soon.
