Arch Enemy’s guitarist Jeff Loomis spoke in an interview with Ultimate-Guitar and revealed his favorite guitar solo. He said:
“The title theme to Jeff Beck’s ‘Cause We’ve Ended as Lovers.‘ I just love Jeff Beck, I love the way that he expresses himself through his guitar playing and his vibrato and his use of the bar.
I just think that when you hear somebody like him play, he’s just speaking through his instrument.
So rather than calling it a solo, I’m just going to say that whole song is something that is so expressive to me when I hear it.
It really makes me feel something. Jeff Beck is a huge influence on me. Man, I grew up listening to so many different players. I kind of come from that realm of the ’80s shrapnel era.
I grew up listening to guys like Marty Friedman, Jason Becker, Tony MacAlpine, and I’m fortunate enough to know all these guys now. I list all those guys as huge influences but I’d have to list Jeff Beck’s ‘Cause We’ve Ended as Lovers’ as one of my favorites.”
