Great Guitars: Wilko Johnson

Dr. Feelgood's guitar player managed to create one of the choppiest, sharpest sounds around using his fingers instead of a pick to play his Telecaster. A high energy rhythm machine in the Chuck Berry/early Stones vein, Johnson was also one of the links between 60's garage rock and post-punk players like Johnny Marr.

  1. There's a place for guitar picks of course, but in many cases using only your fingers can produce incredible sounds. My brother has played guitar for many years and finally began using just his fingers rather than a guitar pick.
