  • Hi GMC!

    Welcome to my new lesson!
    There's an old story about ZZ Top and their phenomenal guitarist Billy Gibbons. Well, at the time when I began to play a story circulated about Mr.Gibbons and his famous riffing, why he has such a devastating guitar tone and how to get that kind of sound... The answer was as follows : he uses a Mexican pesos as a plectrum!?!? Moreover, he uses strings that are actually melted bumper of a Cadillac!?!? The story was probably fabricated, but in any case sounds good and that's what gave me the idea for this lesson (only the coin part), when I get a Cadillac - you can expect all the work done.
