Nice job man. One thing though, I believe the part you have with use of the octave pedal is actually Myles using an ebow.

Yeah, well I recognized how that section of the song has a octave melody line but was not totally sure what was going on. I did see a recent video of Mark going through his rig and he does have an octave pedal so its possible that he uses it in the studio for times like this. He did some things like that in the ABIII sessions too.

They will likely use a pedal live for ease.
