Ritchie Blackmore - Brilliant Musician

Ritchie Blackmore is one of the guitarist who is being considered in the era of 70-an. Technique in which the game arpeggionya electric guitar with overdrive / distortion made a lot of role models for the shredder in the days of heavy metal era 80-an.

At the time he was in the era of 70-an, electric guitar at that time was still using techniques such as blues bending, vibrato and picking a traditional course. But Ritchie gives a touch of the electric guitar, playing with the economical picking, arpeggio, tremolo picking, whammy bar techniques even in the standard tremolo Fender Stratocaster guitar he already apply in the era of an 70-year at that time.

Such us the name of Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Stump, Chris Impellitteri, or as one of the shredder is enough to adopt the technique of Ritchie. Can be said, Richie Blackmore as the ringleader of the shredder guitarist.

In 1967, Ritchie who initially had to play with some bands such as the Outlaws, Screaming Lord Sutch, and Neil Christian & The Crusaders be joined by Jon Lord, former kibordis Artwoods / The Flowerpot Men, where this is the beginning of the beginning band form a giant a living legend until now: DEEP PURPLE.

During this period, Deep Purple has changed personnel up to 4 times, and also after the switch is still up to now.

Deep Purple in 1969 have created a concept of their joint concert with the classical orchestra accompaniment, which in this case imitated by many bands such as Metallica successor, Scorpion, and Yngwie Malmsteen that also uses a similar concept in one of their concerts.

The era of Deep Purple is a triumph when they released the album "IN ROCK" (1970), a game where the real guitarist Ritchie started out here.

Also appear after the album "Fireball" (1971) and in 1972 released the album Deep Purple "Machine HEAD" which is considered the music critics as the best rock albums that time, with hits in songs Smoke On The Water and Highway Star.

After that time period-Deep Purple began to experience internal shake-up, particularly private matter between Ritchie with vocalist Ian Gillan at the time. Ritchie in 1975, officially resigned from the Deep Purple because of the skewer on the color purple music sast that have started to the Funk-Blues.

Ritchie finally established the band solo project he named Rainbow, and I was here that many critics felt that this band represents the soul and music that actually Ritchie.

And in the songs Rainbow, Ritchie has spent a lot of skill as he plays the guitar arpeggio that fast, whammy bar, tremolo picking and picking economical.

In 1984 to Deep Purple in 1993 to make their best formation for the reunion again, and hits one of the songs I created during that era was "Perfect Stranger" that made the song Medley by Dream Theater. However, during that time, the Rainbow is not too productive again, albeit still a few albums out.

In 1993 when Deep Purple the world tour, Ritchie officially resigned again in the midst of a series of concerts that took place in Europe. Consequently, the position of the left part of the Ritchie tour that has not been finally completed by Joe Satriani.

In 1996 Ritchie still released last Rainbow album, and 3 years later, Ritchie even make a band together with his wife, Candice Night as vocalist to create a new band called Blackmore's Night with the flow of celtic folk, contemporary celtic, contemporary folk, irish. Truly a band with the flow of the music is very much different game with guitarist Ritchie is so fierce in the era of Deep Purple and Rainbow successful.
