I have always thought of the guitar as one of the most emotive instruments. I suppose that’s why I gravitated to it at such a young age.
What really stuck me the other day was how many ways there are to play a single note. A pianist would kill to have so many options and ways of hitting a single note.
It’s so strange that when we play this instrument we leave our DNA in each note. My family and others who listen to my music would immediately be able to tell that it was my music they were listening to after just a couple of notes.
Yngwie, Guthrie, Tosin – I can tell I’m listening to them after just a few notes.
I have a theory: The better the guitarist, the less notes they have to play before you know whose playing.
