Rolling Stone‘s Young Gun series explores the most notable guitarists from the next generations of six-string legends. In its latest posting, the magazine spotlights Warpaint guitarist Theresa Wayman, who shares guitar duties with bandmate Emily Kokal.
As noted in the article, Wayman is highly influenced by Jack White.
“I love the way he solos,” she told RS. “He makes it chunky and stuttery. And you don’t know where it’s going to go next.”
Wayman, who often plays her 1966 Fender Mustang, also had this to say about playing guitar:
“When you’re playing guitar, you can just enjoy the song and not have to worry about some of the technical things,” Wayman says. “I almost prefer to barely be able to hear it so I have to dig for it, and it makes me play better. If I can hear it really loudly, I tend to shy away. Since I figured that out, I’ve had so much fun playing.”
Watch Wayman in action in this episode below of Guitar Power, hosted by Matt Sweeney.
