Toto IV

Guitarist - - Techniques -

By 1982, Toto had be­come a more slick pro­duc­tion, in­volv­ing or­ches­tral over­dubs and more main­stream ‘pop’ type ma­te­rial. Steve’s gui­tar is still all over this, though, as any­one who’s ever heard Rosanna will tes­tify. Else­where, I Won’t Hold You Back (also writ­ten and sung by Steve) fea­tures a melodic, re­strained gui­tar solo that was def­i­nitely an al­ter­na­tive to the py­rotech­nics that were gain­ing pace else­where.
