Comments Off on Top Five Guitar Tips From Around The World
I’ve gathered together a collection of tips from interviews with the best guitarists in the world. As well as some of my own. Some you’ll find useful, others you’ll be amazed at. Hopefully you’ll get some inspiration from it.
No. 1 Slash is an amazing guitarist it goes without saying, but you may be surprised to know that he doesn’t have a comprehensive knowledge of scales. in fact he says he knows “. . how to play major, minor and pentatonic scales all the way up the neck, but that’s about as complicated as I get.” So don’t stress to much about your lack of theory its not everything!
No. 2 According to Joe Bonamassa it is really important to have eclectic tastes and to try to learn as many styles as possible. “Listen to as much music as you can, play as much guitar as you can in every different style. If you think you got the blues down, then try some Chet Atkins stuff, or try some gospel, try some jazz.” The Aspiring Guitarist Interview
No. 3 Kirk Hammett from Metallica in an interview with Guitar World suggested that its a good idea to play your riffs using a clean sound, at least at first, so that you’re not hiding behind a wash of distortion. I know who few guitar players who could learn from this.
No.4 Once you have perfected said riffs however it is a good idea to try using different effects. Using Distortion or Flanger or Wah Wah can transform an otherwise mediocre riff into something amazing. Try playing a Genesis or U2 riff without delay or distortion!
No.5 Last but by no means least its the P word! Everyone from Steve Vai to John Mayer will tell you that there is no other way of getting good on the guitar without PRACTICE – So stop reading and pick up your guitar.
I’ll finish with a quote:
“If you want to be a rock star or just be famous, then run down the street naked, you’ll make the news or something. But if you want music to be your livelihood, then play play, play and play! And eventually you’ll get to where you want to be.”

Muso’s was recommended to me as I know nothing about music (buying a gift for 10yr old son). Man, they were brilliant with their knowledge and also they provided different price options and didn’t try to upsell! They pointed out that something that would have cost me $70 would last longer than something that would […]Muso’s was recommendedFacebook Reviews
