Marty is a MONSTER. Cool to see this!! \m/
I've been listening to this album a ton since this thread popped up. Thanks!
That generation of Megadeth really was the bee's knees. Saw them on the RIP tour, Birmingham England, supported by Alice in Chains (RIP Layne) and The Almighty. The combination of Menza and Friedman in Megadeth was fantastic. RIP sits alongside Plaster of Muppets (ahem...sorry, Master of Puppets....) and Seasons in the Abyss as the cream of speed/thrash for my taste anyway. Friedman's solo on Lucretia is an underrated masterpiece.
What kind of Guitar was Marty Friedman playing on Rust in Peace?
Jackson Kelly.. Metal Elf guitar.
I'm no the biggest Kelly fan, but Marty is freaking iconic with the Kelly. Really awesome that he's been playing PRS for a litle bit now.
Regarding his soloing prowess RIP in the Megadeth catalogue is certainly killer, but if one is not into the extreme "speed" of RIP then Countdown to Extinction has some really great lead work which shows his tremendous talent but also is not flashy, it all just enhances the songs theme's/construction.
Great, great player, its nice to see him with PRS.
Here's the first full track off his upcoming album:
Of the "Big Four" of thrash,.. Marty was the guy who was the most amazingly soulful and technical player. Kerry and Jeff have their moments of greatness as lead players in a "feeling" kinda way, but Marty straight up brought it! Dude can grab a single note like nobody else, you hear it and know it's him.
(weird to try to use the words "soulful" and "feeling" while keeping a straight face talking about thrash.):evil:
