Slash Describes Guitar Playing as The Ultimate Unspoken Expression

October 10, 2018

Slash has become such a posterchild for the guitar that one simply cannot associate the instrument without his name popping up.

While speaking with Ernie Ball guitar strings, Slash describes how he is able to express nearly any kind of emotion through the guitar far better than simply communicating with words. 

"The guitar is basically a vehicle to be able to express feelings of anxiety, feelings of anger, feelings of passion, feelings of love, feelings of excitement, feelings of violence, feelings of sex...all of these kinds of emotions are, for me, very well expressed through the guitar," Slash says.

"The guitar, for me, definitely is sort of a comfort zone. The idea of standing on the stage without one, let's say if I was gonna be a lead singer or something, is unfathomable."
