Best song breakdown.........
Here's what I'm talking about. A song is costing along in whatever genre it belongs in, and all of a sudden POOF, it just breaks down completely. It almost disappears into thin air. The intensity is still there, but the volume isn't.
Here are examples of my favorites.
VanHalen - Panama The instrumental part of that breakdown is just great. (I just wish David Lee Roth had shut up for a few more seconds.)
Peter Frampton - Do You Feel Like We Do live.
SRV's version of Little Wing. I read an article once that said during that breakdown you can actually hear the amp buzz with good enough headphones, and it was right.
I dig ALL KINDS of music, so I don't care what kind it is. Jazz? Blues? Rock? Pop? Funk? Live or studio? What are your favorite examples? Youtube (or some other) links would be great, but certainly not required. I don't even care if it's a regional act. Go nuts!
