Learning to play guitar isn’t easy. We all remember signing up for lessons, convincing our parents to buy us boutique effects pedals and watching endless videos of our favourite guitarists making it look effortless, only to get frustrated when we couldn’t play our favourite riffs exactly like Jimi Hendrix or Kurt Cobain.
With companies like Aclam Guitars making high-end pedals for us to practice with, there’s no excuse for giving up on the practice. However, we’ve definitely resigned to the fact that we will never be able to play as well as the greats. We’ve rounded up the most iconic guitar solos ever, the ones that make us stare at the screen in awe and repeat ‘how did they do that?’
