Jonny Lang’s epic guitar solo on “A Quitter Never Wins”

Sometimes musicians can take us to what seems to be a different planet. Blues Rock Review recently caught Jonny Lang’s performance at Summerfest in Milwaukee, and Jonny REALLY gets into his guitar solo on “A Quitter Never Wins.”

    I’m not impressed. Lots of facial grimacing and repetitive “shredding”… I could have done the same and don’t even know how to play guitar! Okay to show emotion and grit, but I would expect a more “meaningful” guitar solo from Mr. Lang…. Until we demand better, we will continue to get plenty of theatrics and not memorable blues rock.

      I fully agree. The solo didn’t give any emotional feelings. It was like a bad erotic film- overplaying/faking the feelings. After this video, I wouldn´t pay for a ticket to a show with him.

    Haters gonna hate. I challenge both John and Marttti to post a video topping the J-Lang solo. Of course no video will be forthcoming from either. But honestly, just try and copy what you see here – you’ll fail but give it a try.
