The vocals of “I Would Not Be Wise” have a consistently quiet strength, while the supporting lead guitar mostly flutters but also has a fling with flittering. Without getting entrenched in the analogy, the fluttering is the rapid guitar picking that allows the instrument to hover over the vocals and other elements of the track from Shane Tully. We particularly enjoy the guitar hover that occurs after the 2:30 mark of the song. In comparison, “flitter” is more random and unpredictable. At the two-minute mark, the guitar enters into a brief flitter that is attractive, well-positioned, and well-executed.
