Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush discuss the music that is closest to their hearts.
“OVER UNDER SIDEWAYS DOWN” The Yardbirds, Roger the Engineer (1966)
Jeff Beck again, playing one of the most unique guitar lines ever. It’s really hard to play that thing — it manages to grab something essential from the Eastern quarter-tone style without just being imitative of Indian music.
And it’s the hook to a pop song — back when pop, particularly in England, could be a platform for experimentation and innovation. Beck, Page, Clapton and some other Brits really discovered a totally new sound.
They figured out how to get a pop angle on the blues by electrifying it, and it became a profound way for guitarists to speak through music.
