When Steve first heard the Taylor 8-string Baritone guitar, what immediately attracted him to it was the 'otherworldliness' of the sound it made, with its deep rumbling bass notes and shimmering, haunting double strings. The tone seemed to be almost primeval, hinting at hidden depths and half-forgotten memories, and he instantly fell in love with it.
We now use the instrument on several tunes, including this solo piece called 'Justify', which is in two parts, a slow ethereal section followed by a faster reel. We thought it would be fun to make a short video to accompany the first part, so the start of May saw us filming in the depths of Shropshire, trying to produce images to match the music (and making ourselves dizzy in the process!). The complete track is on our album 'Runes'.
