The lighter acoustic bass sound helped move Holdsworth’s writing and playing in to a new area that he has never really pushed before. "That’s the beauty of it as well because he, like a lot of the other bass guitar players I’ve played with, he plays a lot. If you put Dave on bass guitar he’s playing all the time and he plays chords I keep telling him I’m going to buy him a one string bass guitar! So giving him the acoustic bass was great. It was a good element to have and I think it also added something to the sound, which also important to loads of people’s perception of it."
