For the month of February of 2015 Digital Guitar Player would like to crown Doug Aldrich as the guitar player of the month. Doug Aldrich has made a huge impact for guitar players by helping to keep the legacy of Whitesnake alive and well. He has been like a right hand man to David Coverdale as well as a long standing member of the band. He has played in Dio, Hurricane, House of Lords and Bad Moon Rising. He has a few bands of his own that includes the Revolution Saints as well as Burning Rain.
As a guitar player Aldrich is an all around musician because he has been able to bring his style and perform virtually anything. He has a certain kind of finger technique that allows him to play with speed and accuracy as heard on some of the tracks that we are highlighting on here. Aldrich shreds with Gibson Les Paul guitars allowing him to have the one of a kind tone that he possesses. We are looking forward to seeing what other greatness Doug Aldrich will bring to the guitar world.
