Also, for about the last year that I was touring, we got to the point to where we did little or no talking between songs at all, just slammed into the next one. The only time we did was during a guitar change, & even that was quick because we factored that into our shows, We did our set list to where the first 1/2 of the show was on one guitar tuned to D, then we switched to the 7 string for the remainder. Cutting the talk allowed us to add another song, which is why we're performing anyway. Talking is for after the show. Our fans really dug this because it kept the energy level consistent, by the time we finished, you needed a breather anyway.
