He is not just one of the most innovative an original players from the 90's, he is also a riffmakmachine. Morello is a very talente guitar player for me and I'm glad of knowing that RATM is back! wink.gif


I second that one Gabriel smile.gif His riffs are infectious.

Morello is a fantastic guitar player and much more. When talking about music he is one of those musicians who don't walk on the other men's path but make their own. Someone had called him "A DJ with guitar" and this is pretty good explanation. He makes killer riffs and very nice alternative solos.
Yes he does really use much effects but does this mean he can't play? I have many effects, and most of the guitarists have but only Morello has discovered many, many new ways of using them. In RATM songs you can hear hellicopters, scratches, screams and whatever you can think of and it's all made with a guitar.
I just can't understand the people who can say that he's a bad guitarist or something like that. It just isn't right. He has created something so unique and good sounding that even if you don't like it, you can't say anything more than "I don't like him". It just isn't right to say for that kind of person that he's a bad musician/guitarist.

And the other thing I like about Morello. His way of thinking. From his hat with "Nobody" written on it, through his "Arm The Homeless" signature guitar, to his decision to make a country rock'n'roll political album and much more.

For me Morello is a great man and I am really happy that we live in the same time and that someday I can see him and feel his presence. (Unlike Jim Morrison, who I will never see and I really regret the fact).

Cheers,
Hristian

P.S. One thing about Morello that I don't like - He has had to stop that stupid "Killing In The Name" in the moment they started writing the song. 6 lines ot text with no idea in them is just not RATM. But that's the toll that they payed to become famous. :/

So which do folks prefer Morello with Rage, Morello with Audioslave or his Nightwatchmen stuff? Or none of it as the case may be?


Rage. I haven't heard the Nightwatchmen stuff though. I like the Audioslave stuff a lot (Cochise has one of my fave riffs) but there's some kind of edge that's missing that was there in Rage. It's hard to explain.

Scott I know exactly what your saying. Audioslave is great and Morello created some killer stuff during that time but there was that edgier element missing for sure. For me I think it was Zack and the whole "fight the establishment" thing that Rage had going on. Cornell is great, don't get me wrong, it's just he brought something different to the table and Audioslave was meant to be a completely different sound from Rage. Rage is just a grittier band then Audioslave imo.

And Nobody - you pretty much read my mind sir smile.gif

Well I acctually dislike Morello's music, The first time I heard it a friend was playing one of his songs and I thought it was a joke blink.gif I didnt even know what it was and then he told me that it was Tom Morello. I cant really say all that much about him other than I dont like his music soo yeah, just not my cup o' tea mellow.gif

I enjoy a lot of his playing, although not everything smile.gif

He's far from my favourite player, but I respect what he does with the guitar..
Too say he isn't any good is ignorant!

In music it's all about expression, style and feel for the music. I think he found everything written pretty good.

I agree with Ivan,-EXPRESSION-, isn't that the factor here. I remember when Rage's first album hit stores and I'll tell ya no one sounded like them. After the 1st album I couldn't handle the constant political regurgitation of Zakk so I blocked it out to tune in on Morello's playing and choice of riffs. Noise, maybe at times but I particularly like his "noise"

can't say i love him or hate him- his musics definitely very unique though. It is hard to play cause you need to get the distortion all right most of the time. wink.gif

I spelled my username wrong...I didn't even think that was possible!

Look at the topic for my guitar...
Finished Guitar Build

Gear:
Homemade strat (You still need to look at its topic!)
Squier strat (probably going to get rid of it and get another guitar instead) :)
Line 6 spider amp (not actually used for anything, just acts as a speaker)
Digitech Gnx2 (kind of old, but cheap, and sounds amazing!)
