They aren’t Shredders, They are Awesome

This pure opinion is in random number. I like them because their play style and their charisma on the stage. So, let’s start from my country first, which is Indonesia. Here they are…

ANDRA RAMADHAN

He is a guitarist of Dewa(legendary band from Indonesia, which previously named Dewa 19) and Andra and The Backbone. This guy is really good when he plays with his PRS guitar. He is playing very calm and clean. When plays as Dewa‘s guitarist, he plays gently. But, in Andra an The Backbone, he plays wildly. But, personally, I prefer he as the guitarist of Andra and The Backbone rather than as Dewa‘s.

DEWA BUDJANA

He is a guitarist of Gigi, Trisum and also has a solo project. I’m impressed with his plays since the first of his solo concert, which is just a year ago. Denis is the boy who invited me to watch Budjana’s concert. Since that concert, I began to listen his music, especially his solo project and Trisum. And, I realize that he is one of the best jazz guitarist in Indonesia. Even though he is very calm when performing, but not with his fingers. His fingers move fast but sure according to the songs. In Indonesia, he is very famous with his blue Parker guitar.

Nah, those two guitarists are my favorite guitarists in Indonesia. Below is my other favorite guitarists that came from outside Indonesia. Here they are…

KURT COBAIN

Okay, he is my hero. He is a guitarist, a vocalist, and a frontman of a band called Nirvana. I like his style, his guitar, his Nirvana, and his left hand. If you read my previous post about 10 facts, I mentioned him as my hero because he is lefties. But, not only that, I adore him in many things. Some says that his guitars skills are bad, but I think they are just envy to him. He has a very very simple way to play guitar. I also like his songs. He is very charismatic in stage, even though he often to wore weird dress when performing. And another unique thing is his guitar. I like his guitar. His guitar is a combination between Fender Jaguar and Fender Mustang. That’s why the guitar’s name is Fender Jagstang.

JAMES ROOT

He is the guitarist of Slipknot and Stone Sour. I like his style when he perform on the stage, especially when perform with Slipknot. I always like his mask, rather than the others in Slipknot. He is physically looks like a devil that play a guitar. And he has number 4 as the Slipknot number. His guitar is a unique guitar. I think only he that plays metal using Fender Telecaster. Before him, there isn’t any guitarist who play metal using Fender Telecaster. Only he can do it, and the result is great. Just listen to a brand new Slipknot’s album, and feel the sound of his guitar.

JOE SATRIANI

I don’t have anything to said, do I? He is the master, I think. Just listen to his albums, and you will understand why he impressed me, even impressed anyone who play guitar.
