Morello's Crazy Guitar Solos

Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave has inspired countless guitarists with his unorthodox guitar techniques sounds. On the flip side of the coin though he has probably straight out baffled twice as many guitarists!

This compilation video of his solos gives you a look at him making some of those crazy sounds... it should give you a much better chance of sussing out how he does them.



Dont forget: Crazy sounds are awesome but if your still a beginner you should to get the basics nailed first with a teacher, or a quality guitar course like THIS

Im not sure if its compulsory that you have to pull this facial expression when tapping classical music on a double neck guitar but this guy sure seems to think it is :)

Either way, some great playing. Both impressive and amusing!

Slash Attacked!

Much to my amusement my old guitar teacher used to say "rock'n'roll is a tough game Andy, that's why they wear sweat bands".

By the looks of this clip where a crazy guy tries to attack Slash, he is right... rock'n'roll is a tough game. I just never expected it be quite so literal.
