    Lead Guitar.....

    Ever since I listened to Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple, I fell in love with the lead guitar. Ritchie Blackmore on his Fender playing along with Roger Glover, was one of the most awesome pieces of guitar playing that you could here. JH being the exception here. The...

    So Do I

    When I was about 10 my brother discovered Cream. I love their music. Eric Clapton is of course superb but Jack Bruce is pretty amazing too. I can't describe what the sound does to me but somehow it makes me feel energised and free.

    There's just something about it.

    I can't explain it, other than you get lost in it.

    though depends on the guitarist.

    I love a talented guitarist. There have been many since the '70s. A couple of my favorites - Eddie Van Halen and Stevie Ray Vaughn. When Eddie was young and lots of energy his work with Van Halen was extraordinary. I really enjoyed his range of skill. I could hear classical...

    PeppersWarlocksIt's debatable whether the RHCP are guitar gods. I don't think they're in a class with Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, or Mark Knopfler..But some of their music is just raw liquid emotion..I love music because it says all the things I'm not allowed to say..(And if you...

    The Best Instrument

    I've always loved the sound an electric guitar makes... I've always wanted to learn to play a  guitar but my mums never brought one for me since she thinks it's too much noise. I think I'm too lazy right now to keep one with learn to play it. I really hope that one day I can...

    Not Just The Guitar Of Course

    You'll need amps and a few boxes and the odd pedal, then you're ready to go. If the electric guitar didn't exist, Jimi Hendrix would have had to invent it.

    Certain guitar tones I like.

    I really love low tuned palm muted riffs. But my favorite being a bass player are bass tones just because they are deeper and lower.

    That Raw Sound

    Let me just start off by saying I absolutely love the sound of an electric guitar. I think it's because of that raw sound that it makes, I just really dig that sound man. Especially on the song Roadhouse Blues by The Doors where guitar player Robby Krieger lays down a sick...

    David Gilmour Is The Best

    There are tons of GREAT guitar players: Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison, Carlos Santana, Eddie VanHalen, etc. I love Dave Gilmour. My father is a guitar player and musician and I was raised on classic rock. I can always pick out a David Gilmour guitar solo. The sounds, the tone...

    I love to color the tones

    as well, I always need more effects but when I play live I really only use about five, depending on what I need to do.

    Classical Rock

    I love it when the most graceful music is combined with the most hardcore. Check out O' Come All Ye Faithful, Christmas Canon Rock, and Requiem the Fifth all by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
