Guitar lessons are transformative. Not only do they transform you into a nimble, quick-footed musician, but they turn mere mortal into superheroes.
We are familiar with the notion of a “guitar hero,” but this idea is more than hype. Guitar players are true heroes in the United States. People look up to these six-string stars, and relish the chance to watch these fast-fingered titans rock a stage.
Here are a few guitar heroes that you might study when you take guitar lessons:
- Jack White. This Midwestern wielder of axes authored some of the mightiest riffs of the 21st “Seven Nation Army”? “Blunderbuss”? “Icky Thump”? These are legendary, singable riffs – instant classics.
- Patrick Stump. The Fall Out Boy frontman is less about flash, and more about rock-solid rhythm playing.
- Chrissie Hynde. She is a native of Ohio, of course — could anyone have written “My City Was Gone” — but the great Chrissie Hynde is also a ripping guitarist who wrote unusual and alluring lead lines.
- Ed Sheeran. Say what you will about the British author of “The Shape of You,” “Thinking Out Loud,” and other smashes, but any person that can sell out an arena without a backing band — just one guy and his guitar — is doing something right.
- Jimi Hendrix. An American legend, Hendrix changed the instrument. His groundbreaking innovations pushed music forward. But at their core, songs like “Fire,” “Purple Haze,” and “Foxy Lady” are an update of the electric blues.
