Noel Gallagher admits to "average" guitar playing
Oasis axeman Noel Gallagher has admitted that he could never be considered better than "average" on the guitar.
In an interview with Total Guitar magazine, the Mancunian suggested that while his ability is enough to help him achieve what he wants with his band, he is nowhere near as good as his friends Paul Weller and Johnny Marr.
"Those two are virtuosos to me although neither of them would admit it," he remarked. "On the electric guitar they're it."
Weller, who made his name in the Jam, nevertheless had some consolatory words for his mate.
He said that while his style is "rudimentary", Gallagher does have a "distinctive" sound, particularly when playing rhythm guitar and designing chord progressions.
None of the three musicians placed inside the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time list that was published by Rolling Stone in 2008.
In those rankings, Jimi Hendrix came out on top, ahead of Duane Allman and BB King.Posted on 29 Jan 2009 13:51 to category : Band / Celebrity News
