To play guitar like one of your heroes is often tricky. However, if you can tease out their approach to guitar it is a great insight into their techniques and what it is that makes them sound the way they do. if you want to sound like your guitar heroes or if you just want to add their particular style to your toolbox of techniques understanding their guitar habits is a great approach to take.
Bearing this in mind let’s get back to trying to learn to play guitar like Brian May.
Brian May is actually one of my all time guitar heroes. His style of playing is pretty unique, from the guitar that he built with his father to the use of an old English six penny as a plectrum Brian May has a very recognisable and individual sound. It is perhaps because Queen is a four piece that Brian May developed his playing style which relies on thick melodies accentuated by delay effects which gives Brian May that big “orchestra of guitars” sound.
It can be argued that Brian May is not a shred master. He does not build complex solos and he doesn’t play hundreds of notes per minute but what he does do is create perfectly crafted melodies and solos that always fit perfectly into the Queen sound. If you want a perfect example of less is more then Brian May is your man. He is a great guitarist to study!
