- Just like Jerry
Furthur guitarist John Kadlecik didn’t intend to sound like The
Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia, left, but after seeing the legendary
jam band perform multiple times, he found the style easy to
“It’s like turning on a switch — I didn’t have to study it,”
But study it he did, as well as licks by his other guitar
heroes, including Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Phish’s Trey
Anastasio. In doing so, he gleaned much about how the instrument
figures into a band’s musical mix.
“I got to the point where anybody I liked to see more than once,
certain aspects of their stuff would come through — it was like
doing a vocal impression on an instrument,” he said.
“There’s a lot to be learned about song-arranging by really
figuring out those songs, and how the guitars interact with the
bass and keyboards,” he said.
