I am a 37 year old lead guitarist and I’m hungry for new (or old) stuff I’ve
never heard of yet.
I’m getting desperate to hear some good stuff that has originality and class in
the heavy metal/hard rock type music.
I really don’t mean to be fussy, but please only suggest stuff that would apply
to my taste.
Here’s what I like…
Older heavy metal/heavy rock/blues like Black Sabbath (Ozzy and Dio), Led
Zeppelin, Deap Purple, Rush (Neil’s is the best drummer), Rainbow, Alice Cooper,
Eric Clapton, Montrose (with Sammy Hagar), Triumph, Van Halen, AC/DC (simple yet
moving), Styx, Pat Travers, Gary Moore…
I also like Fusion like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Steve Morse, Dream Theater,
Jennifer Batton (bet you don’t know her), some band called “Z”…
Then there’s other bands like Santana (one of my favorite guitarists), Pink
FLoyd, Supertramp, Heart, The Who, Saga…
OK, I may be off on my categories a bit but who cares, the point is, I got
thirsty ears. Being a guitarist (also play drums and keyboard) makes me a little
picky. Sorta like I like Jimmy Hendrix (to some extent) but I don’t like the quality of the sound, too much bass, not very clear.
Now I know there’s a lot of high quality and original underground or little known stuff out there, I just don’t know where to find it.
If you can suggest anything that you think I could quench my ears on, please do so, prefferably Kazaa friendly.
