"I came up in the jazz world, where the approach to doing a solo is off the melody. And that's how I was trained to approach a solo. When I got older and I started helping songwriters with their arrangements, that was always my focus: My guitar parts have to be based off of the melody or the structure of the song. And to be honest, I think that's why songwriters like me and why I have lasted this long in this business. I'm all for that song and what it needs. I am not there to show off." - Scotty Johnson of the Gin Blossoms -- episode 13 of the Bands To Fans podcast
