Recalling his memories of the session, West-Oram told Guitar Player that he was first down on the recording, tracking his iconic guitar part to a click using an Ibanez Blazer, two Marshall combos and his trusty old MXR Stereo Chorus pedal.
Here, West-Oram demonstrates his funky, clean chops as heard on the Fixx’s best-known and highest charting single using a Suhr Koji Comp compressor, a classic MXR Stereo Chorus, and two Fender guitar amps running in stereo.
