Guitar lessons

Here’s a new illustration. I tried to include all my rock guitar heroes of all times and some other that I don’t like that much but I thought they deserve at least to appear on the list.

Featuring: Frank Zappa, George Harrison, Slash, Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Brian May, Johnny Ramone, Jack White, The Edge, Chuck Berry, Angus Young, Pete Townshend, Tony Iommi, Eddie Van Halen, David Gilmour, Ace Frehley, Ritchie Blackmore, Duane Allman, Kirk Hammett, Carlos Santana, John Frusciante, Yngwie Malmsteen, Kurt Cobain, Mike Bloomfield, Jerry Garcia, Ry Cooder, Bo Diddley, Jeff Beck, Tom Morello, Brian Setzer and Peter Green.

This poster is SOLD OUT. Not planning to print more either.

Very good, I enjoy it. But no Surf guitarist, or Nokie Edwards, or Link Wray, or Dick Dale?

Max Dalton dijo...

You're right. Believe me when I say that Dick Dale was one of my finalists. He's a hell of a guitar player and I love his sound! Too boring to draw, though. Next time.

Where's Buckethead!?

What about Prince?

If theres one lesson I learnt today it was that women can't rock.

Great illustrations but perhaps you could think a bit harder.

Max Dalton dijo...

Hi, thanks for your comment.
First of all, I didn't mean to offend anybody. I'm sorry if I did.
The truth is that I thought and looked for a woman guitar legend in the rock bussiness, but I couldn't find one. There are certainly in jazz and blues,like Memphis Minnie, who I totally love, but this is about rock. Perhaps you can name me a couple and I'll consider them for my next illustration.

Marc Quigley dijo...

Great posters! I love the attention to detail on the guitars themselves, in particular the PRS that Carlos is holding.

Felipe dijo...

Dónde está BB King?

Recesionista dijo...

Me encanta esa ilustración! (No importa a quien haya omitido...)

Max Dalton dijo...

Thanks to all for all the comments!
I know that this would happen, that someones says "hey, where's BB King?" or "hey, where's Steve Vai?". It was hard to decide which player should of be here and who should not.
I had to chose 35 of hundreds of good guitar players they are around. In fact, my favourite player is Django Reinhardt and, you see, I left him out because he's not a rock musician. I have many other reasons for I have chosen these ones. But believe me, I know how you feel not seeing your favorite player there. Maybe next time.

EDDIE VAN HALEN!

Anónimo dijo...

Very nice. :) May I suggest a classical guitarist poster next?
Like...Fernando Sor, Francisco Tarrega, Pepe Romero, Segovia, Roland Dyens, the Assad Bros. , Ana Vidovic etc.?

Anónimo dijo...

Where's Eddie van Halen?

Max Dalton dijo...

Eddie Van Halen is among them. Is the one wearing a pink outfit. Third row,fourth column.

Anónimo dijo...

Chrissie Hynde?

Pedro Caio dijo...

man, do you ship to Brazil? This poster is awesome!!

Ethan dijo...

Are you going to do a bass guitar poster?

Max Dalton dijo...

I love Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders, I have many records of them, but i think she doesn't qualifies for a guitar legend. She does play, but she's mostly a singer and composer. I also did an illustration of Bob Dylan, but then I get him out of the poster for the same reason.

Max Dalton dijo...

Hi Pedro,I certainly ship to Brazil. It's sold out, but if you mail me I'll put you on a list for future prints.

Max Dalton dijo...

Bass guitar posters? Maybe I will, Ethan... Maybe I will.

Anónimo dijo...

Nice artwork. As for women guitarists, how about Nancy Wilson from Heart!?

René Silva dijo...

Un trabajo genial, realmente me encantó. Aguante Jimmy Page!

karakenio dijo...

¡Arrechísimo!

Esperamos la 2da parte y la edición de bajistas =D

Tiago Pimenta dijo...

Congratulations! I almost cried when I saw this. All of my heroes in one beautiful and extremely well executed piece of art. Thank you for this.

Concurrence dijo...

You should look into some sort of mass production online. Your poster is going viral on the internet and you may have more demand than you realize.

marry dijo...

Blogs are so informative where we get lots of information on any topic. Nice job keep it up!!

hola max cuanto me puede salir un poster asi????

JAVIER dijo...

Hola Max.
Maravilloso poster.
Si bien es cierto que lo que importa es la estética y que dá igual quién falte.
Yo creo que dado el estilo de los guitar dibujados, han faltado dos que no deberían de faltar:
1. Rory Gallagher, creo que todos estamos de acuerdo.
2. Ted Nugent, si bien el tipo está loco, se ha vuelto tarumba, está como un chocho loco. Su música hasta el Intensities era brutal.

Enhorabuena

ROLLER ▼ MONKEY dijo...

genial poster, John Frusiciante es un maestro. Solo te faltó Dick Dale.
Saludos, excelente trabajo.
