Richard Page “Kyrie”

Back in the mid-80’s when Mr. Mister wrote and recorded what would be their 2nd massive #1 hit, Kyrie, new innovations in keyboard technology allowed musicians to use sequential synthesizers to program things that were virtually impossible to actually play. This fascination can be heard in the staccato bass line which plays throughout the song. It wasn’t until the song had been mixed and released that the boys realized they had a problem; how to perform it live.

Since the song relies on this ‘trickery’, the question becomes, can a stripped-down version work? Here Richard tests that theory with an acoustic guitar only.
