Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mick Mars (born Robert Alan Deal, May 4, 1951) is the lead guitarist for American heavy metal band M tley Cr e. He employs frequent use of a metal slide in his soloing and takes on both the rhythm and lead guitar duties of the band. In the studio and live, Mars frequently tunes his guitar down a whole step to get a stronger and crunchier rhythm sound. The altered tuning also increases string slack to enable his characteristic hammer-on trills, pitch bending, and pinch harmonics during soloing. Mars also introduced the pedal steel guitar to many of M tley Cr e's later recordings and live sets. Mars has taken a critical role in songwriting for the band, coming up with many of M tley Cr e's best known riffs. For the sum of his career with M tley Cr e, Mars has created the aura of being a somewhat mysterious figure, letting the other members of the band speak for him in public and in print, despite being the eldest and most articulate member of the band.show more
