That moment when imperfection is perfect

Great over-thorough analysis of the first two measures of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream by Nick Jaworski.

“Striking” does not mean “bad”. Far from it, I find it strangely compelling. Clearly, there are two guitar parts playing simultaneously – each guitar individually panned (placed) into the left and right ears. It’s the guitar in the right ear that lags behind.

I’m totally a sucker for this kind of writing.  Be sure to check out Nick’s other project, Leading Notes.  Nick gets it, and he’s a big voice for our cause.
