Scorpions “The Sails of Charon”
Hello Vegetables Report:
Click here to go to Hello Vegetables to check some vintage Scorpions “The Sails of Charon”…one of those tunes that is the holy grail for guitar players. Mainly because it showcases “Guitar God” Ulrich Roth. This dude burns on the guitar, and his legend grows. Uli is not a crazy showman like Yngwie or the others, but stands his post, and lets the fret-work do the talking. Make sure you check the videos that HV has posted to check out Uli.
I have all of the early Scorps “Lonesome Crow”, “Fly to The Rainbow”, “In Trance”, “Virgin Killer”, “Taken by Force”, and the live “Tokyo Tapes”. A lot heavier than the more radio friendly version of the Scorpions with guitarist Matthias Jabs, but classics worthy of a buy if you are curious, and appreciate some SERIOUS guitar playing.
