Today we have an awesome lesson in the style of Tom Morello by Adrian!

Are you familiar with Tom's work? Which band showcased Tom Morello's skills the best?

Perhaps some of you guys have opinions about his lesson known projects.

A few of those RATM tracks really hold a special place in my heart. I also became very tired of chris cornell's voice. Between those two issues I'd say my personal lean is towards rage.

Not sure, but for me, RATM music contains his best work IMO. Awesome musician, lots of creativity. Excellent riffs.

I would say RATM, when the self-titled album was released in 1992.

Off topic a little but he was on Conan the other night with a band called Fists Full Of Mercy featuring Tom Morello. It was ok, he was in the background playing rhythm mostly, had a 10 second solo which was good but it was kind of weird to announce the band that way when he really was kind of just there.

The style of music is what I would call Americana, almost country.

Here is the song they played.

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.

kahall I have to agree with you man. It was a little weird how they announced it as he was just sitting in... he's good friends with Ben Harper.

As for Mr. Morello.... I am a HUGE fan. How he can make a guitar sound so unlike a guitar is fascinating to me. As for his projects RATM for me is first and foremost. He was not only the guitarist but the "DJ" so to speak (the "scratching" effect for Bulls on Parade is a good example) As a fan of hip hop I loved how they meshed the genres and were truly unique.

Audioslave was great as well. Not as "Hip Hopish" as RATM which appealed to many. Cornell was a nice addition as I always enjoyed his vocals. Really like their Live from Cuba DVD.

As for his "Nightwatchman" stuff it's a little TOO political for me. Enjoy the acoustic side of Tom though smile.gif

PS: As for songs my faves would be:

Killing in the Name
Cochise
Born of a Broken Man
Wake Up
Gasoline
