    The solo in Paul Weller's recording of, You do something to me, gets my endorphins flowing to parts of my body that other solos can't reach.

    There is one short strum like a double stop where the amp breaks up divinely and I am transported to Utopia.

    How is that done. What amp is the guitarist using?

    Man, it's wild how personal music can be! Aside from a couple semi interesting changes, that song did not do anything for me. Cool Gilmore guitar tone though.

    Try listening to Schenker's 'Bijou Pleasurette'... that's haunting and profound.

    I honestly don’t know, cool song .
    But I agree with Adrian, I am a bit more in the Michael Schenker camp!

    Yeah that's why I asked, I wasn't hearing anything he was saying, I listened to the whole song and there wasn't anything that grabbed me, personal yeah.

    That's a good solo, sounds like a Strat neck pickup through a low gain Fender amp with a good amount of reverb. :yesway:

    I listened and it is reminiscent of Rick Wakeman who I used to love. But not so much now.

    My musical tastes are wide I am going to see Opeth in London Uk later this month.

    it is interesting the point about what excites and individual. I was playing Weller's recording for my wife yesterday and she loved it. But asked the question I wonder why i like it so much - I don't think she will like Opeth. But a few drinks included and we will have a nice time out in London.

    Again like you said, personal, I'm not into classical music so this sounds as boring to me as the OP's song.

    Sounds like neck pickup into a small amp that doesn’t handle bass very well. Maybe a Fender tweed amp of some type, a Champ or Deluxe. They can sound like that when you hit the low E kinda hard.

    Ok I heard it,...nice!

    A little 2 note chord to start off a riff, well done. Almost certainly a single coil neck pickup,...and very Gilmourish imo.

    Schenker is as always one of my favorites . Bill Nelson of Be Bop Deluxe has this sort of melancholy song that takes me back to high school grammar class.
    at 2 min. but this the extended live version. Also reprise riff at 6:33 :

    I get it, Paul Weller is a great player I heard the moment you were talking about first off. Yet is a personal moment, keep feeling it and do it for yourself!

    Hi G,

    I’m a Weller fan and that solo was played on his Gibson Firebird III non reverse. Not sure if Steve Craddock played it on the record and you may see him play it live with Weller on the same guitar. The bit you like is kind of a Weller lick he does on other songs. Out of the sinking, also from Stanley Road has it too.

    Amp wise Weller is known for his 1970s Marshall lead and bass combo. This amp was with him in the studio for Stanley road and Craddock has one too.

    You will be able to get close to that sound and break up on the third or fourth bar of the solo with any Marshall valve amp. The Origin 20 i have makes it very easy.

    Opeth is one of my favorite bands.
