    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...

    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.

    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...

    There's just something about it.

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

    My dad plays guitar, bass and other instruments. His favorite guitar is his white, maple neck Fender Stratocaster. He's been playing since he was a teenager and is really good. My sister and I grew up listening to him play, as well as music from his era which is classic rock. The...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Sixties Stuff Sends Me To Cloud Nine

    And when those electric guitars (we all have a lot to thank the great Les Paul for) combine with the electric keyboards so popular with sixties groups, like Classics IV and The Association, brothers and sisters, you ain't got nothin' better to melt away your troubles. And...

    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.
