MOTIVATION FOR THE GUITARIST: KIRK HAMMETT

There is one guitar riff that I can easily play at any time, even if I am woken up abruptly in the middle of the night, because we played this song hundreds of times. It seems to me that I’m the only one who can play it, find the right sound for it. Since everyone is looking at me, I should always set an example. And if I do not practice the game of this riff, then my level of ownership of the instrument will fall.

The essence of rock music (part 1)

How, why did a new style of music come about, how did it all begin?

It all started with the fact that in 1920 the Soviet engineer L. Tremen invented a new musical instrument theremin. It was arranged as follows: the pitch changed by approaching the antenna or removing the performer’s hand from it. The desire to use electricity in music encouraged inventors to come up with unusual instruments with fancy names – emiriton, trautonium, and violen. In the thirties, the first electric guitars appeared. But they probably have nothing in common with a modern electric guitar, except for the belt on which it is hung. And it was difficult to call those instruments an electric guitar. Just because of the urge to somehow isolate the guitar in the orchestra, to make its sound louder, a pickup was attached to the acoustic guitar. Continue reading
