Tom Morello reveals how he likes to record guitar solos

The amazing Tom Morello talked with The Brag about how he record his guitar solos in general.


Read what he said:

“Laying down the solos is still probably my favorite part of making a record. I always save it until last. It’s a purely creative, inspirational mood that I get in”.

“There’s no craftsmanship – I go in the booth, I lift up the antennae and I see what comes beaming in”.

“On this [Prophets of Rage] record, I really tried to challenge myself and go outside of my comfort zone. I was using guitars I’d never played before, pedals and amps I’d never used. I tried out a Jimmy Page violin bow…”

“Hell, I even managed to record a track with the first guitar that I ever owned. It was a Kay guitar that I got for 50 bucks, and it was found in the closet after collecting dust for about 30 year”s.

“Normally I’m a very traditional guy – I’ve had the same set-up more or less for the last quarter-century. I was really inspired to branch out on this record.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
