I think it might’ve been sort of 50/50. The Spiral Static demo from around the same time doesn’t have it in so I wonder if he just implemented a variant on the Grace bit live ‘cos he thought it fit, hard to say w/ literally two examples though I guess.

It is v easy to fuck up tbf (for me at least) sounds like he might be finger-picking in that interview though so maybe he finds that easier, or maybe he was just rusty at MA idk
