Priestess’ 12/8 Mosh Masterpiece

Thank you, Priestess. It was long overdue that someone reminded young rock fans how utterly killin’ a blues shuffle riff can be. With the mean-ass 12/8 guitar theme to your song “Lay Down,” that’s exactly what you did. Maybe it’s the monster fuzz tone you employ on the album version of this song, the pummeling power-fifths turnarounds at the end of the phrase, or the cool way you avoid the fifth string whenever possible, but this catchy lick is so fun, it’s no wonder it’s now featured on the ultimate guitar gateway gizmo—Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. Nicely done.
