My Guitar Inspiration: Jack White from The White Stripes


Besides Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix,  and Tom Morello, I remember when I was 13 years old & first heard ”Icky Thump” on a radio station that was called Project 96.1. I immediately was like ” How did he do that?” lol. I mean, of course I knew he was playing a guitar…but it was the way that he was playing which moved me. After that, I started listening to guitar music more & decided to learn how to play myself. Jack White, despite what some people have to say about his guitar techniques, is one of my top favorite guitar players of all time. The White Stripes is one of those bands that just comes around & quickly elevate themselves into ”legendary” status.  Future Rock n Roll Hall of Famers, of course.

My Guitar Riff Goals: AC/DC Back In Black

Pretty soon I will be getting me a new electric guitar & one of my ”guitar goals” is to play one of the greatest guitar riffs of all times…”Back In Black” by AC/DC. I mean, look at Angus in this classic concert footage. His moves & the schoolboy uniform is so legendary.  Matter of fact, look at everyone…this is a great definition/description of what it means to be a Master Of Ceremony. Amazing concerts & entertaining. Most importantly, that guitar riff.
