About a year ago I figured this part of Dreamin Boy by Capsule out on guitar and I think it's one of the most interesting things Nakata ever did. A short sequence but so many subtle unexpected single note deviations that completely alter the chord and the whole context of where the sequence is going. So much of my guitar playing as a whole is now colored by concepts just in this one sequence

Kind of like how youtu.be/X_pDwv3tpug?t=172 stuck with me for years. Some of the coolest progressive writing isn't cool because it's a zillion notes, but instead because it's a slow, deliberate, careful sequence that defies your expectations. Like some mostly-blank modern art canvas with a splash of something jarring on it. Just a completely isolated interesting idea
