Top 10 Movies for Guitarists
Here are 10 great rock 'n' roll movies — not including documentaries, concert films or musicals — that any guitar player could appreciate.
Most musicians love a good movie. Cinema offers a fun, relaxing respite after your typical five-hour, finger-grinding guitar workout.
But what's a guitar player to watch when documentaries get too heady and musicals neglect our favorite instrument?
Believe it not, there's a plethora of mainstream Hollywood pictures to sate the guitarist's cinematic appetite. Some are high-brow works of genius. Others are just barley watchable. And some ... well, you can be the judge of that.
Below are 10 great rock 'n' roll movies. Or at least the ones that put big, goofy smiles on our faces, intentionally or not. Note that this list does not include documentaries, musicals or concert films. We're talking actual movies with actors and scripts and high-strung people like Ari Gold working behind the scenes.
10. Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny (2006)
It may contain the origin of Jack Black and Kyle Goss' meeting and little more than the duo's typical Dio-inspired shtick, but it's worth the price of admission just to see KG with long hair. And Dio. Anything with Dio is worth watching.
