KOí¿N guitarist, James Munky Shaffer, sat down with All Axess to talk about his first ever guitar and the players who inspired him to pick it up. While Munky may be best known for his thumping grooves and eerie sounds on his down tuned, 7-string Ibanez, the guitarist says that when he first started out, he aspired to play a totally different style of guitar:
“I really wanted to start playing classical guitar. I liked finger plucking. I think what inspired that was Randy Rhodes, I think he was sort of my first inspiration”.
