Imagine a cross between Jeff Beck, Steve Vai and Van Halen who, at the same time, wouldn’t be flashy. This is how I think of Daniel Piquê, a brilliant brazilian guitarist and composer that I have discovered recently. I encourage you to go to his myspace page where you can download lots of his music for free for a limited time. Here is one of my favorite songs, featuring none other than Billy Sheehan on bass:
In terms of Tone, it seems that Daniel Piquê favors a rather “pure” amp tone, featuring effects in a subtle manner compared to his eighties virtuoso predecessors. It is interesting to see that a lot of guitarists have been going down this road recently.
