Besides being one of the most iconic and fascinating instruments in Rock music, the Guitar is undoubtedly a fascinating platform of musical expression. As a work in perpetual progress, it reivents itself with each style, culture and generation. The overwhelming techniques waving through the hands of a gifted player – whether it is a far wholetone bending, a subtle vibrato, a gentle tapped arpeggio or a furious ascending fast picking lick that progresses through the neck until it resolves in multiple tremendous dive bomb artifacts – still manage to shot the audiences into oblivion.
