The guitar is a wonderful instrument. In the right hands, it can be strongly emotive, awe inspiring, gobsmacking. Unfortunately, sometimes there can also be a bit too much look-at-me-look-at-me-look-at-me, as Guitar Player points out in Top 10 Guitar Tandems.
Two guitarists can keep that impulse in check. And the bi-play between them can take a song to a whole new level. Allman and Betts, Tipton and Downing, Angus and Malcolm, Keith Richards and whoever … some pretty good bands have decided that two guitars are better than one.
Nothing wrong with Guitar Player’s list, but there are lots of other acts you could add: Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Humble Pie, Wishbone Ash – and, oh, this little band out of Liverpool called The Beatles.
