it seem like no big deal.

melodies on guitar from some songs whose melodies were
not meant to be played on guitar.

They were intended mostly for keyboards or melodic percussion.
- Dweezil Zappa

see really good players play up close.
That gives you an idea of fingering and technique and what not.
- Dweezil Zappa

has nothing to do with anything.
- Dweezil Zappa

It was spontaneously composed as I was playing it.
And then I added a couple of other overdub textures

That's just what came out.
- Dweezil Zappa
