Brian always maintained that if he possessed any hallmark, it was the technique of using the combined sound of two instruments to create a new instrument. This is a pop update of an old symphonic tool.

These are my favorite unison marriages:

-piano and nylon string guitar

-bass guitar and low piano

-rhodes and piano

-doubled vocal in octaves

-cello and fretless bass (played properly)

-kick drum and sidestick (thank you to Bob Marley's drummer)

-electric guitar supporting electric bass

-and of course the purely modern, chest-caving-in bass-guitar and kick drum.
