Analysis and Explanation

The effect used in the solo was used during Plug in Baby on the By Request gig in Paris for the first time. Also during the Yokohama Arena gig soundcheck, an unidentified guitar lick was played after Madness, later identified as The Dark Side guitar solo. You can listen to it below.

It was played at the most of the public concerts of the Simulation Theory Promo Shows since it's debut on Reeperbahn Festival. It's been a live staple during the Simulation Theory World Tour, with it being preceded by Pray as an intro.
