awesome article! I especially like the little bit about the soloing.

"Oh yeah, definitely. In Creed whenever I tried to solo, Scott would have to make fun of me for being too eighties. It would always piss me off because the more flashy I got on the guitar, the more he would downplay it. But those days are over with. Before you know it, I'll be doing the eight-finger tapping."

"Kurt Cobain may have killed the guitar solo but we're going to do our best to bring it back," nods Kennedy.


and

"And we've got a drummer who can breakdance," adds Myles helpfully. Now that, Guitarist would love to see. But things are already good enough: Creed may still cast a long shadow but for now, under the Alter Bridge, Mark Tremonti is having fun and enjoying his music again.

Awesome article... Alter Bridge gives Mark the ability to be himself. Creed was all Stapp and Alter Bridge is all Mark.

I really would like to see Flip breakdance. I think that'd be amusing.

My thoughts exactly. Can you imagine having Mark as a teacher? That'd be awesome, imo.

dude... if Mark was my teacher, I'd work my ass off to learn everything... I'd even quit school just so I could have more time to practice. lol!

I wouldn't want to make ugly in front of him.

That's one of the best articles. That Cobain quote... awesome!

Maybe guitar just isn't Scott's thing and I agree the Cobain quote is priceless.

after all, you can't teach an old dog new tricks... esp if he's dead-set against it (maybe i'm the only one under the impression he didn't try too much lol)
as for Cobain, it looks like perhaps I'm not the only one who thought Nirvana was hugely overrated. They're music's alright, and I have a fair number of their songs. But I'm by no means a big fan and definitely won't be buying that new box set of theirs, despite any rave reviews it may receive. Grunge killed rock & roll (and post-grunge and nu metal just stomp all over its grave lol)

Yeah, I agree. Mark's my favorite guitarist(and really my inspiration for taking up the guitar) and he'd be an awesome teacher. Though I would be nervous about messing up.

Perhaps, but guitar is a very tough thing at first. I'm a beginner(took it up in December of 2004) and had a very tough time at first, just getting used to the fret board and all. Needless to say, it is alot tougher than it looks.
