Dave Navarro Says Learning To Play The Guitar Is "A Profound Gift."

October 4, 2018

"Guitar playing is a gift. It’s something I got into when I was 7 years old... just learning three simple chords led me on a journey that would forever change my life.”

While speaking with guitar string manufacturer Ernie Ball, Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro descibes his humble beginnings as a young kid learning to play the guitar who turned to records to receive an informal education in understanding music. "I ended up in a very remedial place, and really got most of my education in terms of 'music theory', as it were, from records."

Showcasing his catalogue of recognizeable guitar riffs, Navarro shares his intense love of playing guitar both by speaking about it, and more importantly, showing it.
