Description: One day, while perusing the used-vinyl bins in a local record store, I decided it was time to determine which of the Tubes played the amazing lead on their hit song, “Talk to Ya Later.” As it turned out, it was none of them. I should have known by the lava-thick distortion, screaming melodicism, and frothing vibrato that it was Steve Lukather. After all, not two weeks earlier, I’d discovered he tracked the dive-bombing solo at the end of Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry.” And the more I read the liner notes of big rock and R&B albums from the ’80s and ’90s, the more Lukather’s name pops up. My next assignment? Dive headfirst into some albums by his charttopping band, Toto. While most people remember Toto’s Top 40 hit, “Rosanna,” guitar junkies know that the album version of this song features a huge bonus—a ripping Lukather solo during the fadeout jam. Ex. 1 gives you an idea of the snarling triplets he plays over funky grooves that, like “Rosanna”, have a swung sixteenth-note feel. It’s the first two pairs of bends and releases—each of which span a major third—that add teeth to this Eminor pentatonic phrase. Staying in the same rhythmic feel, but upping the melodic intrigue, Ex. 2 starts at the fourteenth position, outlining a Bm7chord over the Eminor backdrop. Cool “wrong notes” come at beat four of the only complete measure, where Lukather does his trademark chromatic sidestepping, using his 1st and 3rd fingers to shift down to the twelfth position for the final note. Have fun!
