In The Style Of...

In The Style Of Mark Tremonti

Mark Tremonti (April 18, 1974) is, without a doubt, one of the greatest lead guitarists in the last 20 years. A heavy metal virtuoso who has not slowed down since he first appeared with Creed, in the second half of the 90s, then on to Alter Bridge, until his solo thrash metal records were released. He has a total of 12 albums under his belt, dozens...

In The Style Of Jim Root

A blood-thirsty surgeon who operates with a sledgehammer instead of a scalpel, a mask in place of a lab coat. No anestesia.  He’s the darling of the morbid, the lure towards the dark side, seeking out his own limits. Gain to the max, the volume the same. You get in front of the amp, real close, and do the Jim Root. There’s something...

In The Style Of David Gilmour

We have covered David Gilmour before through his legendary work, on The Dark Side Of The Moon, or Wish You Were Here, but there are guitarists that we never tire writing about, and Commander Gilmour, the humble master of technique, is one of them. His solos are a trip to another dimension, a skate through space in absence of gravity: something...

In The Style Of George Harrison

What would you expect from a guitarist from the most famous group in the world? A virtuoso? A master of technique and styles? Perhaps...George Harrison was something else though. His guitar was never the leading man of The Beatles as it was with Keith Richards for The Rolling Stones, or Pete Townsend for The Who, or a decade later, Brian May for...

In The Style Of Steve Vai

“His name is Stevie Vai, and he’s a crazy guy” (Frank Zappa).     The hyperactive Steve Vai has revolutionized the electric guitar world ever since he graduated cum laude from the University of Frank Zappa. Vai himself is an enthusiastic teacher (for Vai, practicing and teaching go hand-in-hand) who appears all over...

In The Style Of Eddie Van Halen

The Eddie Van Halen Style Heavy metal changed forever in Los Angeles, in the late 70s, thanks to Eddie Van Halen, and from there began the legend of one of the most influential and copied guitarists in the history of rock.   In his early days,  young Eddie couldn’t afford ‘toys’ like the wah-wah or fuzz, so he had to come up...

In The Style Of Eric Clapton

Clapton is God…that’s how it was put in graffiti at the Islington underground station in London 1967. And if it’s about faith, in his case, we are talking about blues. According to him, the blues is nothing more than another language. Once learned, you can use it to express yourself.   His obsession was to carry the riffs...

In The Style Of Slash

We’ve heard Slash talk about his ‘sweet spot’: that place on stage, that precise point where the magic happens, where there's a perfect balance between the band and the guitar. Where Les Paul and Marshall speak, bond, and sing to make the hair on your neck stand up. Where you choke a note and a harmonic rainbow appears, a...
