Jack White's guitar playing praised by The Edge
Jack White's electric guitar playing has been singled out for praise by fellow guitarist The Edge.
According to the U2 star, White is already proving to be a highly influential musician.
Speaking to the Times, he said: "It's early days for Jack in a sense but you can already hear the multitude of Jack Whites out there."
"That's an indicator to his influence."
The Edge recently worked with White on the documentary movie It Might Get Loud, which explores the history of the electric guitar.
Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page also took part in the project and has been equally full of praise for White's guitar playing.
He recently told BBC 6 Music that The White Stripes star is a hero for young guitarists and has a very easily identifiable sound.
The Edge went on to name Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones as another of his favourite electric guitar players.
He highlighted the riff to (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction as an example of his talent, saying it still sounds as "luminous and bright" as it did over 40 years ago.Posted on 4 Jan 2010 15:00 to category : Instruments News
