Don't Fear the Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult: Inside the Song with Shelly Yakus

A nice look into a classic!


Pretty cool! About 19:00 they talk about the guitar solo, and Shelly remembers he had several mics on the guitar amp with some of them heavily limited and others not. This gave the the clear dynamics of the picking while the limiting helped create incredible sustain on the tone. Great technique!
