It’s not every day that you get an e-mail from Canada asking you to play a guitar solo on a song about ‘Moustaches’ (Canadian spelling) by two 13-year-old whiz-kids! When I heard the song, its sense of humour (as long as we’re sticking with Canadian spellings), I knew the guitar solo had to have a laughing, witty tone to it as well. The wah-wah pedal adds a great laugh or cry to a soloing guitar; just ask Steve Vai or Eric Clapton, so I added that element to my solo; the first time I had done so since “Instant Love (Just Add Water)” back in ’03.
Check out the video here:
Notice my “serious” face? After a few takes when I was smiling, my grin kept loosening up the fake mustache, so I had to keep a straight face (until of course I start making guitar solo faces at the end!) It was a great surprise to see my New Jersey kindie friend Marc Bazerman of Baze and His Silly Friends show up with a mustache with his boys in matching mustaches and air guitar moves.
See what Stefan at Zooglobble had to say about this compelling ode to facial foliage.
