GUEST BLOG: The Best Guitar Solos Of The Last 10 Years

There is a joke that gets passed around between my friends and fellow music makers that usually starts with an Instagram or Facebook photo of high-quality synthesizers, sequencers, or other non-guitar instruments and a caption that reads, “guitars are dead.” What inevitably follows is a long and laughable string of comments from the legions of rock lovers who must stand up in defense of the all-powerful six-stringed instrument that has been a mainstay in music for as long as any of us can remember. Let’s face it, guitars aren’t dead,…
