PYHOF: Guitar Greats and their Iconic Riffs

This week’s PYHOF entry is all about guitar solos that can make you just bob your head with the up and down beat of the riff.

A rock star’s weapon of choice can also be a music wild child’s instrument for soul and folk self-expression.

Just who doesn’t know the intro to The Eagles’ classic Hotel California?

PYHOF’s list gives you the varying moods composed by the thunder fingers of contemporary music’s guitar greats. Their artful strumming and delicate plucking techniques can sure make you close your eyes and feel the music flow into every vein just as a plucked string would vibrate at the introduction of well-placed plucking.

The different guitarists featured here have their own approaches to music as well as playing their weapon of choice.

The mellow composition of Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight along with his iconic guitar solo is the opposite reflection of Kirk Hammett’s lead part in the song Master of Puppets. Also, Joe Perry of Aerosmith heightens up Walk this Way all the more with his funky and get-up-from-your-seat style of playing while Yngwie Malmsteen just plainly astonishes with his guitar riff on Black Star.

So go ahead and give a listen to these guitar greats and their masterpieces. Don’t blame us if you suddenly get the itch to grab a guitar and strum away.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
