Ronnie Wood 'still developing his guitar technique'
Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood has explained that he still keeps trying to improve his technique on the electric guitar.
Despite being a member of one of the most successful and long-running bands of all time, Wood told the Daily Mail that he is constantly working to make his guitar playing better.
He explained that he began to master the musical instrument by listening to how some of his favourite artists played.
"I tried to emulate my favourite guitar players, the old bluesmen like Blind Willie McTell and Big Bill Broonzy. I used to sit by the record player and copy Chuck Berry and The Beatles," said Wood.
He added that you will end up developing your own style even after taking inspiration from other musicians.
Next month Wood is going to perform his new solo album I Feel Like Playing at an intimate gig in the Ambassadors Theatre, London.
