The guys from Wisteria Lane decided to make a garage band but they auditioned a guitarist who was too advanced for them.

I worked with Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry on the composition.  Marc described the complexity and duration of the solo.  I composed the solo, played it for Marc and recorded it. Later, I taught the solo to the actor who is actually a guitarist as well as an actor.  On the set, production mixer Agamemnon Andreanos played the pre-recorded solo thru a guitar amp (which was miked) and the actor mimicked the solo. Re-recording mixer Michael Olman added reverb and other treatment and three days later it aired on ABC.
