Extreme – ‘Cupid’s Dead’

This song was recorded by Extreme back in the nineties and features the band’s unique mix of rock and funk. The piece is known for its extended unison riff section, which occurs late in the song in place of a guitar solo. Extreme bassist Pat Badger plays with a plectrum, making this song an excellent study piece for anyone who is looking to fine-tune their pick playing.
