[Watch] John 5 shreds bluegrass and more with Loudwire’s Gear Factor

From Loudwire’s Gear Factor:

Saaaalute! We’re back for another edition of Loudwire’s Gear Factor, powered by Sweetwater, and guitar great John 5 is ready to display some fresh riffage from his new album Invasion that comes from his ever eclectic mind….First up is a song called “Howdy” that falls outside of what you might expect, inspired by one of the ’70s long running musical TV shows.

“It’s kind of my tribute to Hee-Haw and it’s total bluegrass,” says John 5, ready to do some pickin’ and grinnin’ for the camera. John 5 and Squiggy bond of their love of the Roy Clark and Buck Owens-led show, with John 5 stating, “They’re all just totally shredding up there.”

The guitarist then unleashes the heavier, but DJ influenced sounds of “Crank It” to the delight of Squiggy and the viewing audience. “I just enjoy that kind of stuff where if something is hooky, catchy, I’m like why not? It doesn’t matter if it’s rock or anything that’s good, I love it.”
