It was in the mid-Sixties that Gary Moore got his first proper electric guitar and it wasn't too much longer until he was being celebrated as a prodigy. In fact, none other than Peter Green ecognized the young player's potential and took him under his wing, selling him a '59 Gibson Les Paul (which he used on Need Your Love So Bad and Man Of The World) for a mere £200.
After meeting Phil Lynott in Dublin, Moore went on to play with him in Skid Row and Thin Lizzy. He has since turned his hand to various styles, including a stint in the 70s playing jazz-rock with Colosseum II. Moore has also enjoyed a successful solo career playing tasteful rock and blues guitar and it's this side of Gary's playing we concentrate on in this lesson.
