    • Closing - "Africa (About Face)" by Butterflies and Zebras - Norm Howard and Steve Northover (Steve was interviewed about SWT recently)
      Comment from Steve Northover - If you check http://www.onmusic.com/nands (the slowest site in the world), some of the fractals and many of the mp3's I gave you are now available there.  For "Africa (About Face)", my acoustic is tuned in this great EEEEBE tuning.  Norm is playing his electric through his 100W Marshall stack clean.  It's a straight forward song (something we don't do too much).  I'm using a delay pedal and not much else.  Bet you can't even hear it much.  That's the interesting thing about guitar effects.  When used tastefully, they become organic rather than "in your face".  It's an art to sneak them in rather than just click them on and everyone goes, "Oh listen, he just clicked in the flanger".
