Timbale Posted October 12, 2022 Share Posted October 12, 2022 I was looking at the encore section of A Show Of Hands - had not watched it in many a moon - and remembered something I've always wondered about. You can tell, as I think was the general practise in shooting shows back then, that they have used one night in the venue to shoot the far away, full scope shots and another night to shoot the close-ups on stage, which is the performance we're hearing. It's usually pretty seamless, but there are, I believe, a couple moments that give it away on ASOH...including during 2112, when you can see that Alex has a white guitar in the long shots, and a black guitar in the close ups. BUT, what's interesting to me is that between Overture and Temples, Alex takes a moment ( a moment too long, as far as Geddy is clearly concerned, haha) to switch his guitar to the white from the black. Is this a coincidence do you think? It doesn't seem like he has broken a string...but it also doesn't look like roadies/techs are motioning to him to make the change. I've always been curious about this moment...but have never seen it discussed. Thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
