Joe Perry: Sometimes the key to the guitar is what you don't play
Aerosmith star Joe Perry has advised guitar players that the best musicians are able to judge what can be left out when performing.
"It's about listening to the music as a whole and then doing what you need to do," Perry explained.
"Sometimes it's not even what you play; it's what you don't play."
He said Young is an excellent example of this philosophy, thanks to his ability to judge what each song calls for.
Perry added that the first time he saw Young play live was when AC/DC were the support act for Aerosmith at a series of shows in the 1970s, where he was left amazed by the guitar player's energy.Posted on 1 May 2010 10:00 to category : Instruments News
