I think good guitarists can mimic other guitarists pretty well. Yes, good guitarists have their own style but they also understand other people's styles. Having your own style is not a reason to...

You really don't need sheet music for rock. Rock is so riff/chord based that you don't really do anything with sheet music. Of course learning to read sheet music doesn't hurt but for some it may be...

I don't think this is the same argument. You can tell when a guitarist can play and when he can't play. It doesn't really have to do with "feeling" or "soul". We just describe it as having not any...

Not all music is supposed to be "epic". There are "epic" songs and there are "just having fun and partying songs". There is music for every situation and I think that's a good thing. Sometimes I...

All good guitarists technically know what a 4/4 time signature or a quarter note is (I mean, they can play music that uses them and they can count to four). But some may not be able to name it or...

I guess almost any 2-button footswitch would work. And it may be the 90010, not the 90001. I mean, there is a lot of info about the 90010 and almost nothing about the 90001 so it may be a typo. But...

Yeah, as SexyBeast810 said, check your neck relief. But if only happens on one string, you may want to raise the action of that string. It may be that your 5th string is too low.

The notes in all the 5 positions are the same. It's the same scale but just in different octaves and different parts of the fretboard. A minor pentatonic is just five notes (A, C, D, E, G).

Yeah, I agree. But it requires some theory knowledge and a good ear to be able to figure out the chords from single notes. But this is also the way I thought when I heard the riff.
