    Fender Strat

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...
