Topic: Guitar techniques for Electric (Steve Hackett)

Anyone who's been following the Prog Rock entries knows that I'm an avowed Steve Hackett fan. Here's a video of him demonstrating a number of signature techniques, which will give me enough to "chew on" for a good long while:


When we think that the guitar is simply 6 strings stretched between two points with frets to shorten them and change the notes, it is really quite amazing what can be done with this simple instrument. Every so often, a video like this will compel me to expand my horizons, and motivate me to explore, invent, create, and even imagine what else can be done.


ACOUSTICS:  Cordoba D10-CE / LaPatrie "Concert" / Takamine GD30CE-12 / Norman ST30
ELECTRICS:  EP Les Paul Custom Pro / Gretsch Streamliner G2420T / EP Thunderbird Pro IV bass
