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

John 5 Loudwire

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.”

From Gear Factor:

For this latest edition of Gear Factor, Squiggy traveled to Los Angeles to meet up with guitar great John 5, who let us in on a little secret about how his recent single “Zoinks!” came to be.

The guitarist reveals that one of his favorite ways to write is to pull up a metronome and just riff away. For this video, John 5 just pulls up the beat on his phone, then proceeds to break down “Zoinks!.”
