Ever since Nuno Bettencourt drew a massive line in the sand with the fretboard theatrics of Extreme’s comeback single Rise, new tracks from the band have once again become headline news in guitar land. Their latest single, Other Side Of The Rainbow, however, features a solo that the guitarist ranks as his favorite of all the new songs.

“It’s a groove we’ve never done acoustically,” says Bettencourt, in the accompanying press statement. “It’s got my favourite guitar solo… it’s an up-tempo, moving song.”
