MANY thanks and respect go out to Chris Iacovella for his great
input and excellant insight. I'll play with ya anytime! :^)
Use a clean pretty chorus for Riff-A and a dirty distortion for Riff-B.
Notice how Riff-C is very similar to Alex's famous "Spirit Of Radio" riff.
(Hence this song's title! ) There's a slight digital delay used for Riff-C.
There may be a rhythm guitar under Riff-C in unison with the Bass
playing the B5, B5, B5, B5, A5. But I think it's just a very punchy Bass.

The wobble guitar can be produced using a tremolo pedal. However,
I use a Boss Chorus CE-3 and switch to stereo mode II but
actually run it in mono through one amp through output A to create
the wobble effect.
