Actually, that was the first track we recorded. The more I got into it, the more I realized that I didn't have to keep verses and choruses the same length.
We'd let things evolve just by playing. Like in the song How I Wish, those guitar stabs, those syncopations. Nobody can play those parts like Keith. So I'd just go the other way and play straight through. So if Keith's doing this dotted eighth-note figure and I'm keeping the straight eighth-notes going under that, when you hear it back, it sounds like ten guitars working together.
