Synth City: 10 Classic Guitar Synth Songs
Here are 10 classic tracks that demonstrate the many voices of guitar synths.
08. "Are You Going With Me?," Pat Metheny, Offramp, 1982
Over the decades, guitarist Pat Matheny has become closely associated with Roland guitar synths — especially the GR-300. But it all started with his 1982 album, Offramp, which featured his first documented use of the Roland GR-300.
The album features the samba-based "Are You Going With Me?," which has since become a trademark Metheny song. Its lengthy, trancelike guitar solo is played on the Roland. Check it out below.
Metheny still uses his GR-300, which has since been discontinued by the company.
