08.01.09: In true timely style Jim Brodie has announced that tracks from his Winter Carrots album are available now free and online from here. Jim is now working on his own version of Deep Purple's Highway Star, indeed he's finished it once however there was some trouble in the studio has Moritz arrived during a break from his addition clinic (Moritz is addicted to German Salami, in case you didn't know) and proceeded to pour the contents of his catheter all over the 28bit digital tape unit, thus rendering the whole recording useless. As you can imagine Jim was not impressed. He has decided therefore to start again on the recording next week and hope that it will be completed shortly as long as "Moritz doesn't piss all over it again.".
27.12.08: We are proud to announce that Ritchie Blackmore has been declared the GodofGuitar.com greatest guitarist for 2008 - for the 5th year running. Well done Ritchie. .
20.11.08; Poll Closed: the 2008 Greatest Guitaist debate is now closed. You can expect the results before the new year - don't bother emailing us for hints about who might win, we don't know ourselves! The godofguitar computer centre is already at the job compiling the data - see this video from last year for further details about this aspect.
24.11.08: Jim Brodie has yet again re-released his Winter Carrots CD. You can see a youtube video of his "Deck the Halls" here. Also audio versions of all this fantastic music are available at http://www.last.fm/music/Jim+Brodie
11.08.08: Posted today: "Welcome to Godofguitar.com's 5th annual Poll to find the worlds greatest guitarist. As usual it's open to the general public. This year we have changed the format completely. We are no longer voting for a guitarist directly but for a specific well known solo. We've already been through several voting rounds with well known experts and guitar professionals to narrow the list down 10 specific pieces we have here. We have however still retained the rule that the poll only covers living guitarists. The Poll officially opens on August 10th 2008 and closes on Saturday 20th December 2007. The results will be announced by the new year."
As usual we asked the international auditing firm Pricewaterhousealicecoopers to tabulate and audit the results. The results of the main ballot will be audited by KMPG and CSNY.
So, we've ended up with a list of 10 classic guitar solos which you have to choose from. We know plenty of you will complain that your guitarist isn't included, but we feel we have gone the extra mile this time with the pre voting rounds.
To vote for your favourite guitar solo fill out the form below. Please vote only once. Good luck!
10.08.08: New Guitarist Poll coming very soon!
12.04.08: 2007 Research has shown that many internet sites are deliberately encouraging people who have suicidal tendencies. In view of this Godofgutiar.com has taken the decision to remove all references on this site relating to both Joe Satriani and Gary Moore, in case vulnerable people come across any material which could be classed as distressing (one example being the guitar tab to 'Empty Rooms')
12.02.08: Most famous fans will know about this already however GodofGuitar.com can now formally relase the news that Moritz von der Weide's addiction to spicy germanic sausauges has NOT led to any major complications - he's just not feeling very well at the moment. This has led to him being unavailable to complete the last episode of The Guitar God Delusion which I'm sure you're all very unhappy about. Hopefully more news soon
21.02.08: we have heard a few rumours that Jim Brodie will be joining former Deep Purple bass player Glenn Hughes at the Deep Purple convention being held in Bedford on May 3rd 2008. We would like to stall the rush for tickets for this event by stating that Jim will not be attending this event.
05.01.08: Jim Brodie was so touched by the X factor winner, Leon Jackson, this year he has paid tribute to him by doing an instrumental version of his current hit "When you believe" via a video on Youtube which can you find here. Says Jim "I always watch the X factor when I can depending upon tour and band committments and I love the show. This year was really great and Leon came from no-where really to win it. It was amazing. I wish him all the success in the future".
17.12.07: We at GodofGuitar.com acknowledge that this years votes for the Greatest Guitarist Poll were very close indeed. Following a barrage of complaints from Ritchie Blackmore and Eddy Grant fans about the results of the Greatest Guitarist Poll 2007 we have decided to do a recount of the votes and are delighted to announce that Jim Brodie will be personally attending the GodofGuitar datacentre in Reading to oversee that the process takes place fairly and that no intervention has taken place to incorrectly tarnish the outcome. All being well we should be posting a video of this event tomorrow showing again true transparency in the voting process. We expect the results on Wednesday at the earliest.
11.12.07: To all readers wanting information about the Greatest Guitarist Poll 2007: We have had to do a recount here at GodofGuitar.com as there was an unexpected avalanche of votes during the last 3 days, we want to ensure that all relevant votes are cast and bearing in mind the recent criticisms of the BBC and ITV network we thought we'd better take extra precautions. The result will now be announced on Friday evening 14th December.
02.12.07: With only 6 days to go now until the Greatest Guitarist Poll 2007 is announced we have been in touch with the Ritchie Blackmore's management (Carole Stevens) and have forwarded some of the amazing comments people have posted on the poll which Carole has sent direct onto Ritchie. Carole says "
Here are a small sample of some of the comments from the Poll about Ritchie Blackmore that have been sent to him. We particularly liked "He is the total opposite of generic" sent in by Svilen Trifonov. We wish Ritchie all the best and good luck in the Poll! Don't forget, results on Sunday evening (9th December):
STILL HIGHLY UNDERRATED AND DESERVES RECOGNITION FOR HIS OUTSTANDING GUITAR WORK OVER THE PAST 40 ODD YEARS
he s the number one
because, he's the most fluid and talented. and he wasn't afraid to go for it 10 years ago and play what he wanted to play.
after all these years and still rocking like nobody can. whether its deep purple, rainbow or blackmores night the proof is in the pudding
He is "the god".
because of 31 years of listening and nothing better!
It's friggin Blackmore.... thats all you need right!!
Very expressive, riff master, father to one of the greatest and underrated bands in the world (being Rainbow) fantastic improvisor ect ect its all been said im sure. GO BLACKMORE!!! whoo hoo
He is absolut the best
Deep Purple, Rainbow, Blackmore's Night ... What can I say ...???
God is still alive .
I made the choice because "Ritchie Blackmore" is a god on earth. His golden hands are unbeatable. That's my opinion because I am a really huge fan of his work he did with any of his bands in the past and now.
Ritchie has been my favourite guitar player for years. Not only does he play guitar like no one else, but he is one of the greatest songwriters in the world. He is the total opposite of "generic".
I beginnig to play guitar, because t saw Ritchie Blackmore. And it's change my life. Big thaks to Ritchie.
His playing touches my soul
Ritchie Blackmore is the god of guitarplaying......
He´s been number one for me since Purple and to today´s Blackmores Night.

17.03.06 We have had further complaints to the site that our nominations don’t include Ywingie Mailstorm. Again we would point out that we used industry leaders to create the nominations, however due to the exceptional demand for the inclusion of Ywingie, we have agreed to include him as from today.
14.03.06: Rory Gallagher missing off the Greatest Guitarist 2006 Poll list: It has been pointed out that Rory is missing! This has now been resolved.

Afterwards Jim and Moritz were videoed giving an exclusive interview to the Catholic Herald's Geoff Humber about the new album. These interviews are available on request only (see below) Note: if you want a full DVD quality version of this video, including the interviews with Jim and Moritz, please email us a request to email@example.com.

After careful consideration, I felt that this project lacked the high level of credibility to which my fans have become accustomed. Merry x-mas to you all"Thanks to the open communications between the fans and Ritchie's Managment-he has received many of the comments that were posted on this poll and he is thankful to all his fans for taking the time to write in"
19.12.06: A further taster track from Winter Carrots coming soon!
27.11.06 Arthur Mullard removed from Classic Mallard album cover. Reports are coming in that merchandise sold at certain popular retail outlets includes a Mallard tee shirt with Arthur Mullards face missing from the album design. Adelangsts current manager Taff Haddock has been in touch with Ernst Fuchs the original Adelangst manager, both of whom are shocked by this. As Ernst says “It stinks, we can’t understand why they wanted to get rid of Arthur Mullard, we want him reinstated immediately. I think this is likely to be the work of Klaus Fuchs and Ralph Jenkins the ex Adelangst members who have started up their own rival Adelangst which they are calling Mark 3”. [see history for more about these two rogues]
The original Mallard cover was designed by Moritz von der Weide. Moritz remembers, "this was a bit of a balls up really. Jim had wanted to name the LP after his favourite actor Arthur Mullard, however being a relative foreigner I'd never heard of him so I thought he said the dedication and name of the LP would be Mallard. Well you can imagine Jims face when I first showed him the cover, a great picture of a duck surrounded by naked young women (a bit like Electric Ladyland, only with a duck in the middle, cool eh?). Well he was very upset indeed, and the LP might have been called off at that moment if it wasn't for some fine work from the London Graphics Company who superimposed a picture of Arthur Mullard with the duck. We had to lose all those naked women though, which was a shame. I enjoyed the photo shoot with the duck and naked women mind you, but that's another story, Ducky! Anyway, our first LP sleeve was a disaster and this 2nd one was at least designed and planned by both Jim and myself, even though most people were dumbfounded by it".
13.11.06 Following two of Jim Brodie's songs being released on our download page (and YouTube) we can now announce that an ex member of Rainbow also appears on the album. Jim has been in negotiation with his agent for months and he only recently became available for a session at our Adelangst Towers studios. Jim says "We only had a few hours in the end, but you can see the class shine through on the track, it's a classic, pure genius" We will be revealing shortly which ex-member is to feature on the album (there are STILL a few contractual issues to sort out).
16.10.06 Jim Brodie will shortly be releasing his Christmas Album entitled "Winter Carrots" which will be issued at the end of November. It features Jim's classic MOR (More of Rock) hard rock interpretations of many favourite carols. As Jim says "The holiday season has always left me with a dull feeling in the back of my skull, all that tinsel and goodwill is enough to get any good rocking metaller down, so I've decided to rip up the genre somewhat and do a good hard rocking album but using carol tunes in my own MOR style" A track listing will be available shortly and this site will be putting a clip of "O Come All Ye Faithful" on the site shortly.. An excerpt from Come all ye Faithful is available here
09.10.06 Jim Brodie is shortly due to launch his latest DVD. This time he is going to concentrate on that most electric of topic, Guitar Feedback. Called "Guitar Feedback Gods" it describes how greats such as Jimi Hendrix, Ted Nugent, Gary Moore, Robert Fripp and the guy from Mogwai achieve feedback and why their styles have made them greats in this field.
17.09.06: An excerpt from Jim Brodie's latest guitar lesson DVD is available .
17.08.06: 2006 Poll Results
14.07.06: sorry it has been a bit quiet of late at Adelangst Towers, but we've been working closely with the Belorussian Election Monitoring Committee to ensure that the results of the Greatest Guitarist Poll 2006 is a fair and proper representation of the votes cast. There is now only a few weeks left. The results will be available and announced via videolink broadcast around the world at 2am GMT on Saturday 5th August (sorry to our British fans for the timing here, this is the only available slot on the KXGH-34 satellite). Recent voting has been very strong and we can announce that we do have a front runner. We are aware that Lord Chevy has been arrested by police on suspicion of vote rigging. We would point out that the arrest of Lord Chevy is in no way connected with this site and the rumours on some websites of us accepting "cash for votes" for the Greatest Guitarist Poll 2006 is complete nonsense. Lord Chevy was apparently caught "in the act" as it were at his mansion in Hertfordshire wearing green tights and a pointed wizard type hat. When quizzed about this odd behaviour Lord Chevy said "The result has been a media circus, which has distracted from the issues under consideration, thank God" he added. "Anyway Steve Vai is bound to win anyway".
16.06.06: Plans are in "an advanced state" for release of a solo single by Moritz von der Weide to coincide with the football world cup. It's apparently going to be a version of Renegade Nuns with some different words which will bring in various famous current English soccer stars. We gather that lots of famous footballers have been seen round at Adelangst Towers recently for the recording. More soon...... You can find the words to the original version of Renegade Nuns here, any suggestions for football related alterations?
15.06.06: With just a few weeks now to go until the announcement of our 2006 Great Guitarist Poll we are happy to announce that we have a new clear front runner. Although we are not able to confirm who exactly this is, we can confirm that it isn't Eddy Grant, although Eddy has been doing quite well since we started up the debate about the guitar solo on his song "I don't wanna dance" (see news below) even though we are sure he doesn't actually play on it! Also we apologise for the absence of Peter Frampton in the list, which has been mentioned by a few people. If there is a 2007 Poll we will ensure his entry.
28.05.06: Did Eddie Van Halen play the solo on Eddy Grants I don't wanna dance?
Following our recent news posting (29.3.6) we've had numerous people suggesting that a variety of famous guitarists actually played the solo which is uncredited on the single. The song was voted in the top 10 of great guitar solos of all time. The current favourite though is Eddie Van Halen as he was apparently around at the time of the original recording and also alleged to be a great fan of Eddy's. Maybe someone out there recognises his style on the recording or can confirm this?
28.05.06: Jeff Barton's interview with Moritz video -
27.05.06 Following a recent question on the last webchat, it emerges that Deep Purple may be short of a lead guitarist for the forthcoming gig at the London Astoria (UK) in January 2006. With this in mind, a whirlwind question was thrown out on the World Wide Web yesterday, asking who should be the guest guitarist if the current player is unavailable. The responses received below are quite astounding and rather worrying:
From Hunter, in Tasmania, Australia
“If Blackmore can’t make it, then I would recommend that Purple try out Steve Morse. I’ve heard some of his recent solo stuff and I think he’d fit Purple’s style of music pretty well.”
From Chi in Singapore
“For god’s sake I do hope that Dave ‘Clem, Dave Clemmy’ Clemson is ok for the London gig. I’ve heard all his Purple stuff since Come Taste The Band. I was going to come over for the London gig specially, however if Dave is unavailable I’ll just wait till they come to the Far East later in the year. I can’t imagine Purple without him.”
From Gayle in Kings Lynn, UK
“I hope that Blackmore is replaced with the ‘Flying German’, Adrian von den Berg. His playing with Whitesnake has been incredible. I’m a huge fan of his. Adrian, pleeeeeeaaase!!!”
From Mattheus in Bochum, Germany
“I think it’s about time that Purple reverted back to having the egotistical British guitarist. The type that made them famous in the first place. My vote goes to Eddie van Halen.”
From Dale in Arkansas, US
“After 27 years, its about time Purple changed their guitarist. Hell, if that were my marriage I’d be totally nuts by now. Blackmore can play, but I’m sure Purple can play the odd gig without him. Purple should go for the younger, more virile player. With this in mind, I’d choose, Eric Clapton or Keith Richards.”
From Carrick in Richmond, Virginia, US
There’s only one player for Purple, and that’s ‘The Edge’. The greatest player from Barking, Essex (UK) since…well since, all fifty of them from Iron Maiden. Speed, finesse and taste; these are the qualities that Purple have lacked ever since Satriani left them in 1975.”
From Gosum in Beijing, China
“Me, big fan of Joe Satriani. He’s top man on guitar. Never played in Purple before, and I think he would be the perfect solution to the Blackmore cockungdrum. If Joe is not free then I would propose Michael Schenker, even though I think he is total carp.”
From 20 Cent Man in Detroit, US
“Oh man, I’d permanently replace Blackmore with that record producer guy, Michael Huddersfield. He is one helluva player. My, he’d give Purple that hip-hop sound that they’ve missed since Stormbringer. I’ve also heard that he plans to breakdance during Highway Star and in the instrumental piece of Space Trucking he’d perform a solo moonwalk (none of that cheap Michael Jackson shit either). Michael Huddersfield is the guy for me.”
19.05.06 Jim Brodie has been invited to GuitarFest 2006 which takes place on Sunday 24th September 2006 at the Cocks Moors Woods Centre in Birmingham ). Also appearing will be Michael Schenker, Jennifer Baton, Bernie Marsden and many more. We're not sure if Jim is going to actually play a set or if he's just there to promote his latest Guitar Tuition DVD "The Great Guitar Riffs" where he provides advice on playing the 10 greatest guitar riffs of all time. More soon.
11.05.06: We've been contacted by Vera Wells who advises that one of the guitarists who is currently featured on our Greatest Guitarist Poll 2006, Derek Trucks, is currently driving up and down the UK in an Eddie Stobart vehicle. Vera works for Moto service stations and has seen Derek on numerous occasions. "Sometimes he stops overnight. If you walk near to the Stobart vehicle you can hear amazing guitar noises coming from the cockpit. I've voted for him on the Poll as a result". An interesting one for any Eddie spotters out there.
10.05.06: Did Steve Vai play the solo on Eddy Grants I don't wanna dance?
Following our recent news posting (29.3.6) we've had numerous people suggesting that a variety of famous guitarists actually played the solo which is uncredited on the single. The song was voted in the top 10 of great guitar solos of all time. The current favourite though is Steve Vai as he was apparently around at the time of the original recording and also alleged to be a great fan of Eddy's. Maybe someone out there recognises his style on the recording or can confirm this?
09.05.05: Following the huge success of Jim Brodie's latest guitar tuition DVD Jim has agreed to produce a DVD which specifically deals with the most famous guitar riffs of all time. The DVD will be available in English, German, French, Spanish and Japanese. Moritz Von Der Weide has agreed to supply some of the explanatory speech whilst Jim will be demonstrating the world famous guitar riffs and how to play them.
21.04.06: 'The BEM have uncovered a plot by desperate Steve Vai fans to hack into the 2006 Polling database. Blatant protocol breaches have been identified by the BEM, after complaints were received from Mike Oldfield fans, stating that after having voted for Mike as their number one player, a message was then sent back to the sender saying "Thank you for voting for Steve Vai". The BEM assure us that additional firewalls are now in place and the matter is now resolved. Future votes for Steve Vai will be closely scrutinised for irregularities
12.04.06: Latest comment on the progress of the 2006 Greatest Guitarist Poll. We have been informed by the Belarussian Electoral Monitors (BEM) that there are clear irregularities and inconsistencies between the voting for Duane Allman and Doug Aldrich. The BEM comment as follows: "In the last 3 weeks there has been over 250 votes being cast as a first preference for Duane Allman with the overall general comment being made that Duane is the finest guitarist in the 29 year history of Whitesnake. The majority of these votes have been cast from continental Europe. We would like to clarify that Doug Aldrich is, in fact, the current lead guitarist with Whitesnake, and that Duane Allman is the legendary lead guitarist with the Eagles" The BEM request that all career details of your favourite guitarist are checked prior to the vote being cast.
10.04.06 Since announcing the "Top Guitar solos of all time" (see article below) we have been inundated by requests to find out who exactly was the guitarist on Eddy Grants "I Don't wanna dance". We have insider information that it was in fact a very famous guitarist who was having to remain anonymous in order not to upset his record company. If anyone has any information about who may have played this emotional and blistering solo please contact us
29.03.06: The Minsk Telegraph has voted Deep Purple's Burn as having the best guitar solo of all time. The anthem beat the likes of Renegade Nuns by Adelangst and Jimi Hendrix's Voodoo Chile to best air guitar moment. Other tracks on the top 10 include the amazing Eddy Grant in "I don't wanna Dance". The newspapers editor Izace Rzabslatot says "I'm not suprised Ritchie is up there with Burn, it's a brilliant track".
The full 10 top as follows
1 - Burn (Deep Purple)
2 - Hi Ho Silver Lining (Jeff Beck)
3 - Bat out of Hell (Meatloaf)
4 - Fanfare for the Common Man (ELP)
5 - Stargazer (Rainbow)
6 - Voodoo Chile (Jimi Hendrix)
7 - Highway Star (Deep Purple)
8 - Still I'm Sad (Rainbow)
9 - Black Dog (Led Zeppelin)
10 - I don't wanna dance (Eddy Grant)
