I will easily admit to the fact that it was the sparse blues sounds of one Peter Green that first exercise my mind and brought me to the world of electric guitar. After that, I was pretty much hooked. And I have to admit that with all the bands that I have played in over the past 20 years, I have definitely learned a lot about not only playing in a band, but understanding the internal relationships that are necessary for true musical creativity to flow.
I decided to finally read a lot about guitarists because I feel like there are so many of them out there that has so much to give, and yet it is very difficult for the individual guitarists to truly make his mark in today’s Twitter infested world. I know that there is not a lot of room for people to play the 12 bar blues in a world where everybody wants everything cut to less than 144 characters.
How can one jam when most people do not have an attention span that will carry them beyond 3 minutes of time? That is a question I continue to ask, but I do know that there is still a group of purists out there that understand the world of the electric guitar. And whether that delves into the classical region, or just simple straightahead rock ‘n roll, it’s all a major love for me.
