Electric guitar players have been advised to listen carefully to the sound of their own playing as well as others around them by one rock star.

Speaking to Bay Area Metal Scene, Megadeth electric guitar player Chris Broderick explained that he always attempts to pick out tiny details from songs, such as why a certain vibrato was chosen or the particular sound made by a string.

"The more you hear and the more detail you pick up … then the better you become at making that kind of sound and making that playing happen," he added.

Broderick also told electric guitar players that it was vital to enjoy playing the instrument as having a good time is an important step in developing your own unique sound.

Last month, Marc Rizzo, the electric guitar player from Soulfly, told Guitar International that he feels guilty if he does not practice on his instrument for a good couple of hours each day.
