Finding The Right Musical Ingredients

“And you’re gonna hear the same riffs so many times, but it’s all about the time and place. It’s a cliche analogy, but it’s like proper ingredients. Like when you’re at a point in a song and you need a certain feeling, you go to your spice rack and you’re like, all right, what tastes good?” -Luke, Scarlet Street Guitarist
