2012-11-08 - “We play music we would want to hear if we were in the crowd watching us. It’s not so much a throwback, trying to sound vintage or old school. I just think we’re hitting at the right time when people are tired of overproduced, computerized, formula-based music.”
Such are the confessions of GRAVEYARD guitarist Jonatan Ramm, whose every wail on the band’s third studio album, Lights Out, tells a impassioned story.
Go to PremierGuitar.com and read up on Ramm’s treasured 1968 Gibson SG Special, how Black Sabbath’s “The Wizard” – off the 1970 self-titled debut album – changed his life, and why guitarists must patiently wait for the spot in a song where you’re most needed.
