The Incomparable Guitar of Andrew Gold - Ask Zac 125

April 17, 2020

The late Andrew Gold was a mere pup when he walked into the studio with Linda Ronstadt to jumpstart her career with the tracks "You're No Good," and "When Will I Be Loved." His arrangement ideas, harmony vocals, and most noticeably his iconic guitar work, placed the "Gold" stamp on what would end up being two of her greatest hits. Today we will look at both tracks, and lay out the gear he used for both tracks. We will also look at Andrew's career, and how his guitar playing influenced the sound of pop guitar in the 80s and 90s.
