Eddy Arnold

When I finally put my guitar in the case the last time, I want to be remembered just as a singer, not as a country singer or pops singer - just a singer.

James Bay

I do some solo, acoustic stuff, but I also like plugging in my electric guitar and playing loud with a band.

Brad Paisley

Unless you're a true prodigy, you're going to have to practice for a while being bad before you get any good. And it will seem like a waste of time. I remember that feeling well. But don't worry about wasting time, because it'll be so worth it. It's my experience that in the end, life lessons and guitar lessons begin to blur in all sorts of interesting ways.

Keith Richards

The electric guitar meant that you could have a band with a drummer and a couple of guitars. And that put a lot of horn players out of work.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Barry Mcguire

It was really fun. Well, Bobby was just basically a folk singer. He didn't play with any bands or anything, like all the rest of us. Just played his guitar and sang his songs.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Courtney Love

If I see a chick playing guitar, I'm drawn to that band immediately. I want to know everything, even if it's completely electronic. But you have to really get my attention if you're male. I can't help it. It's part of my nature.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Richard Lloyd

Some-one called my style 'sense of urgency' guitar playing and I've always admitted I often don't know where I'm going when I solo. But that desperation is what makes it exciting.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Michael Jackson

There are two kinds of music. One comes from the strings of a guitar, the other from the strings of the heart.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Juana Molina

I'm a horrible control freak. It's awful! I'm nice, but if someone is folding some sheets while I am playing the guitar, I keep one eye on the way that they are folding the sheets.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Richie Sambora

I taught myself how to play the guitar, so I basically learned by a system of making mistakes.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Sammy Hagar

Ted Templeman, the producer, and Donn Landee, the engineer, are the same team that signed Van Halen, when they were called Mammoth. Donn convinced them to change it to the last name of the guitar player and drummer.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Kim Deal

When the band begins to get a name for themselves, and the writers get assigned to bands, they'll hit somebody who just doesn't like that kind of music, or they love hip hop but hate guitar rock.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Frederic Chopin

Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, except, possibly two.

By Anonym 13 Sep

John Mayer

I remember playing the guitar through the amplifier facing out the window of my house onto the street in the summer time - that was social media in 1992.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Kim Thayil

I play guitar because I like to make loud noises. And the guitar is the coolest way to make a loud noise.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Little Richard

I invented rock & roll. Jimi Hendrix was my guitar player. James Brown was my vocalist.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Tom Hodgkinson

Little things like making clothes, baking bread, cooking, even useless things like bird-watching, sketching flowers, playing guitar in the home - that sort of time is gone. And the time we have? We're so exhausted, we want to let ourselves get sucked in to the escape world of TV. I'm speaking from experience; I'm not above all this.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Guy Clark

I don't know what the outcome will be. I put a couple away for my grandkids, like that. So I don't know, who knows? Maybe I'll start building guitars for a living.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Aaron Yoo

I'm really not that good at Guitar Hero!

By Anonym 14 Sep

Patti Smith

My sunglasses are like my guitar.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Taylor Momsen

I'm not interested in playing the field and all that stuff because frankly I'm not into frivolous relationships. I've got a couple close relationships with friends, a close relationship with my family, and a close relationship with my guitar. I'll know if the right person comes along, and whatever then - cool - but it's not something I'm seeking out at the moment.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Eddie Van Halen

I have pictures of me sitting in the racquetball court in my pajamas with an acoustic guitar, and Wolfgang is probably just two-and-a-half-feet tall. I'll never forget the day I saw his foot tapping along in beat! I knew then, I couldn't wait for the day I'd be able to make music with my son. I don't know what more I could ask for.

Thomas Ian Nicholas

If we replaced guns with guitars, then the world would be a concert

By Anonym 13 Sep

Neil Young

If I could go back in time and see any band, It would be Link Wray and the Raymen.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saffron Burrows

I play the guitar. This year at the Sundance film festival, I joined the band from 'The Guitar' on stage. We warmed up for Patti Smith, and then the director Michel Gondry got on the drums to play some songs from the soundtrack to his film Be Kind Rewind with Mos Def. It was pretty mad.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Angus Young

I honestly believe that you have to be able to play the guitar hard if you want to be able to get the whole spectrum of tones out of it. Since I normally play so hard, when I start picking a bit softer my tone changes completely, and that's really useful sometimes for creating a more laid-back feel.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Kirk Hammett

My guitars are my umbilical cord. They're directly wired into my head.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Richard Lloyd

To me, the coolest riffs are composed of two guitar parts that interlock like gears. You need both parts to make whole. I work things out on an electric that's not plugged in to make sure a good tone isn't forgiving a part that couldn't stand up naked. Only after the parts are written will I struggle to find a tone that supports the creativity.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Eric Clapton

Give me a guitar and I'll play; give me a stage and I'll perform; give me an auditorium and I'll fill it.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Chuck Lorre

I'm an old guitar player who has fallen into television and is so happy he did.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Wynonna Judd

There's just no stopping those girls with guitars.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Cliff Richard

If you can play guitar and sing, you can probably get a gig down the road playing at a restaurant, but don't throw your life away chasing something that is so elusive it will only lead you to regret and may turn you bitter.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Peter Capaldi

I'm sure if Shakespeare were alive today, he'd be doing classic guitar solos on YouTube.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Walter Trout

Steve Fister is a great guitar player. He's ROCKIN'!!

By Anonym 15 Sep

Channing Tatum

The records that I like, they have life and warmth and soul in them. Like the slap back on Scotty Moore's guitar on 'Mystery Train.' You're not gonna get that in a computer. You're gonna want a live room, you're gonna wanna bounce the tape, you're gonna want real musicians, in a room, vibin' off of each other.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Brian May

I'd put a lot of work into playing guitar and was thinking I was pretty damn good. But Hendrix came along and destroyed everyone.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Trini Lopez

I started my career in Dallas, yes. I was born and raised in Dallas. I started my career there when I was very young. My guitar was bigger than I was. That's how young I was.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Linda Ronstadt

I can't draw. But I can draw with sound. That's the most useful thing I learned in terms of what my craft is... The arrangements were mine. They were little lines and stuff that I had written myself... And I was locked into this idea that vocals didn't count, melodies didn't count, songwriting craftsmanship didn't count. The only thing that counted was high arching guitar solos...

By Anonym 15 Sep

Matt Papa

Worship doesn't happen when a guy gets on a stage w/ a guitar. It happens when faith-filled eyes behold the glory of Christ.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Chuck Brown

My first instrument was the piano; I played in the church, and before that I sang in church. I didnt learn the guitar until I was 24 years old.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Glenn Frey

Except for a few guitar chords, everything I've learned in my life that is of any value I've learned from women.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Jim Croce

There' something about universal truths with the simplicity of the acoustic guitar. You can take it anywhere and it helps me reach listeners of all ages and walks of life.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Paco De Lucia

With the guitar I've suffered a great deal, but when I've had a good time, the suffering seemed worthwhile.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Ani Difranco

These days I keep a journal, so I'm constantly sketching down my thoughts, or lines that come to me...ideas for songs. And then when I have a moment to myself, I'll sit down with my guitar and open my journal, and start kind of massaging things together, and see if a song takes shape. Or sometimes, I'll just be hanging out with my guitar and come up with a chord progression or a lick, and that'll sort of sit around for a while waiting to marry itself to some words. So it's sort of haphazard and it's like...junk culture. I go around finding shiny objects and I glue them together laughs.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Jimmy Page

There's a very old recording maxim that goes, 'Distance makes depth.' I've used that a hell of a lot-whether it's tracking guitars or the whole band. People are used to close-miking amps, but I'd have a mic out around the back, as well, and then balance the two. Also, you shouldn't have to use EQ in the studio if the instruments sound right. You should be able to get the right tones simply with the science of microphone placement.

By Anonym 14 Sep

James Taylor

It is the most delightful thing that ever happens to me, when I hear something coming out of my guitar and out of my mouth that wasn't there before.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Donald Fagen

As jazz fans, it was amusing for us to play jazz harmonies on these big, ugly electric guitars.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Kathleen Hanna

I know I love sexy surf guitars, I know I love loud snare. I love really simple repeating bass lines, and I love weird mad scientist keyboard sounds.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Daniel Smith

Up till now I wrote the songs on my acoustic guitar alone with the Lord. Then I would take the song and share it with my family and then we all would figure out instrumentation together.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Zakk Wylde

Without a doubt, Eddie Van Halen is the greatest guitar player who has ever lived.
