GUITARIST 101, INC
‘What I love about being a guitarist and the guitar as a voice is how individualistic it is,like a vehicle for personal expression..It’s a conversation. In a cerebral way it’s like your souls’ very signature. How I get expression out of a note for instance is different from the player next to me in the studio, on stage, or someone on YouTube. And vice versa!
If distilled down to just one element that distinguishes like 10 guitar players each playing the same exact riff side by side? It’s pretty simple-It’s in their vibrato..or how much ‘English’ you put on a note as Joe Satriani likes to say!
UNITED WE STAND
I occasionally tear off a handful of ‘interesting’ notes..‘Discover’ a few chords every now and then not in any chord book anywhere! Crazy thing is this usually occurs when you’re really going for something on the edges. I never want to lose that feeling of lift-off..the spontaneity factor when playing guitar. Otherwise,at least to me,it’s a sanitized,sterile headspace to play an instrument in. I’d rather live & die musically with a little dangerous mindset because occasionally you’re gonna bust into something on the edge of your ability that is amazing! Some of the most memorable,iconic guitarists and their recordings have this common thread running thru them!
