I had stuck wth the idea to make this song starting sort of majestically. However, as I tend to overcomplicate things from time to time (dammit!! I hate it when this happens), the result was to break the simple intro riff I had in mind with the one you hear in the song. Besides the guitar riff, I did it with the drums too! I programmed the drums in a complex way IMO where I had a really simple rhythmic/percussive pattern in my mind instead. At least I think that the intro riff drum-section grooves well! In fact, it was one of the most joyful songs t practice on to John Antoniadis (drums). The challenge recording this song was the drop G tuning!! As the tuning drops attack and tightness on the guitar drops too. I used a .68 for the drop G string, a .56 for the low D string and the rest of the set is standard D'addario .10 - .52.
