Eight Steps to Becoming a Legendary Hair Metal Guitarist
Want to become a legendary hair metal guitarist? Just follow these eight simple steps.
03. Play a "Super Strat"
Almost every hair metal guitarist played a "Super Strat" (with the exception of the custom Flying-V) for three reasons: Eddie did it, it offered easy access to the whammy bar and it was extremely light-weight.
You may ask, “What the hell did guitar weight have to do with hair metal?”
Everything. Watch an old video or concert footage and you’ll notice the lead guitarist running, jumping, sliding, dancing, crawling, spinning and skipping on stage like a maniac that just swallowed 59 caffeine pills. A heavy axe limits aerodynamics and throws off counterbalance.
04. Hate Your Lead Singer
No explanation needed.
