Re: Satriani / Morse


Well, I quite like Ritchie's understated playing on that song. It's like his playing on things like Holy Man, Gypsy, even the solo in Smoke - and stuff like Still Remember You from Fires At Midnight. It's lovely, understated, guitar playing, IMHO, and it has that great clean Blackers sound - I just don't like that Morse tone, which I think sounds a tad too processed, don't you think? Look at all those bleedin' pedals on that board he takes with him on stage! By 'eck, I wouldn't know what the hell was on and what was off!

Anyway, I wasn't comparing the Blackers solo, I was comparing the Satch and the Morse solos. But now you mention it, I do like Blackmore's. Alot!

Yeah, I love all those other solos and would definitely rank those among Ritchie's best. Don't get me wrong, I do like that style of Ritchie's playing, the slower solos. But for some reason I just don't get that same feeling from the WABMC solo, not that it's bad, but I just don't think it's as good as the others you mentioned. It just doesn't quite go anywhere for me, if you catch my drift.

Hmm I know what you mean, personally it doesn't usually annoy me, but I'll agree that there are some DP songs that don't suit that tone and oddly Steve doesn't seem to be able to play with any other. There are some songs I wish he'd wouldn't use that tone on (Smoke, is definitely one).

Steve's guitar playing utside DP utilises pedels and effects quite lot, but they don't always match DP's music. Although sometimes they do, as I said I think his style goes really well with all of WABMC except the solo and there are a few other songs aswell (Perfect Strangers, Fools).

Am I the only one that thinks Ritchie's solo in the studio version of WaBMC is amongst his very finest work? emoticon I love the fact that as fans of the same band we all have our own opinions. emoticon

I do love the Morse versions of the song too though, and like Beese said in the previous post Morse plays a great rendition 'Perfect Strangers', and another classic I'd say he plays equally well is 'Woman from Tokyo'.

I've always loved Blacker's solo in WABMC. It's beautifully played, understated, great clean tone, and rather yummy with a cherry on top. Exactly the right number of notes, some lovely bends in it, and let's face it, it totally compliments the song.

Actually, sometimes I convince myself that the whole thing was slowed down in the studio before Gillan put the vocal on!

Yeah, RB's solo is so beautifully understated, quite different to his playing in general at the time.

His solos in Soldier of Fortune and Temple of the King have similar feel to them.

Yes! Both really nice solos. I also love Blackmore's Blues. Those notes are so classy and glassy, it's hard to describe, really.

Re: Satriani / Morse


I like Satch's version, Steve's version (although on the evidence of the two You Tube examples I prefer Steve's tone) and I like Richie's version....

....but then [sign in to see URL] didn't like the song at all, so what does that tell us?

Blackmore's solo suits the mood and lyrics of the song perfect! Steve's soloes over the [sign in to see URL] have to admit that they are quite good, and he gives a good impression. Just a little to much of that "widdle widdle", but during that song he shows a little emotion. That's good, 'cause he is for the most part a tecknician.

I don't know what it is about the WABMC solo, but although I love nearly all of Ritchie's solos in a similar vein, there's just something about that one that just doesn't quite hit the 'spot' for me... oh well...

Re: Satriani / Morse


To me, the trouble with Morse's tone with Purple ( and with satriani's at the time, but not to the same extent)is the fact that the band have that big growly fat hammond filling out the middle of the sound;

Blackmore's understood the dynamics and either filled the grunty bottom end or the whiny top end with his strat; neither of the above guitarist do that, hence the middle becomes cluttered and 'skewed'.
 Hope that makes sense!!
