I couldn’t help but notice, after the Nightmare album came out and all the tours to follow ended. A7X went quiet for like a year and then when they came back with “Carry On”, I could help but notice the first time they played it live (their first show in a long time) Syn was holding his pick completely different, utilizing economy pick instead of alternate, and completely changed his whole style?! How does one even do that? I’ve alwyas payed close attention to his playing as he is my favorite. Does anyone else notice the change in style on his solos on HTTK and The Stage compared to older albums? I think every album is a masterpiece and all of his work on them are completely brilliant, but since HTTk and his renovated style, I’m truly amazed. It’s crazy how someone can be so educated in music and still pack so much feel into what they play. I met Syn in Chicago this year and wanted to ask him about this personally but didn’t have the time unfortunately. Hopefully he will see this!
