Electric Guitar in Black Cherry
In my rock-n-roll dreams, I always seen me playing a flashy guitar. It would have a series of lights all around it, but the actual color of my guitar would be black cherry. You don’t really see the black much, so it gives the cherry red color a darker look and I like that!
While growing up, I didn’t have a lot of local music stores I could visit. We didn’t have the Internet, so browsing guitars online was impossible to do. I’m glad teens have places online now, where they can view all kinds of cool guitars. Even if they don’t plan to buy one in the near future, they can still look at them on the computer screen. You won’t get hassled by a salesman online, like you would, if you visited a real music store. I think for this reason alone, you will see more musicians buying their instruments on the World Wide Web. A website like Musician’s Friend can often be more helpful, than your local, small town music stores. They also have a “1-800 phone number” listed on their site, so musicians, music fans, or anyone else can give them a call, about a specific question.
Anytime I think of guitars, I always think of the best guitarists out there. The ones from yesterday and today. You can look around online and see a lot of debates, on which dude played his strings the best. I think it would be pretty hard to beat Joe Saitriani (the teacher) and his famous student Steve Vai. Both of these guys have to be in the top 5 or top 10 lists. A lot of folks will say Eddie Van Halen is the best, but I believe he would be the most popular guitarist out there.
One thing I don’t see that much, is the top guitar songs of all time. I wonder which songs people would pick, for the best guitar songs of all time? I love the way Sweet Child of Mine by Guns N’ Roses starts off. That is an awesome riff to hear and one that is familiar to most metal fans. Dire Straight’s song Money For Nothing starts out with a slow drum beat and then kicks in with the most awesome guitar playing ever (if you ask me). I really like these two songs and the way the guitar starts them both off. Do you know of any other songs, where the guitar is very popular? Please reply back with any songs you know of, where the guitar playing really sticks out in your mind. Maybe we can form our own list, of the top guitar songs of all time.
