You might remember him from Autograph. What do you think of his playing? I think he does the tapping thing even better than EVH.
I love the solo in Autograph's "Turn Up The Radio", there's the best tapping part i have ever heard. Rest of his solos are also fine work. :)

I have always wondered how he plays his instrumental "Hammerhead". (Can be found in Autograph's album "That's The Stuff")
I have tried to figure that one out but i haven't succeeded on it :wink:
I'm waiting for the day when someone puts it to guitar pro.

I was also a HUGE fan of Steve Lynch back in the 80s. I loved the first AUTOGRAPH album... SIGN IN PLEASE. I also liked the 2nd one (which was recently reissued) called THAT'S THE STUFF. The only problem was the 2nd album was reissued missing one song (SIX STRING FEVER), but containing another (WE'RE AN AMERICAN BAND). I didn't care for the third album... I think OZZY guest-starred on one song on the album and video if I remember correctly. I can't recall the title. And I never heard MISSING PIECES, or MORE MISSING PIECES. And from what I understand, the singer Steve Plunkett reformed the band.. but missing the key part of the band: Steve Lynch. So I wasn't interested in that release.... if it was ever released.

I read an interview with him from Guitar Player magazine... and he said a lot of his solos were triple-tracked like Randy's solos were. He would compose the solos... I mean completely work them out... and then record them.

I used to really look forward to his lead breaks in every song. It was always the highlight of the song... very tasty licks... great to practice and learn.

In the 80s, he came to San Antonio at a store we used to have called MUSICMAKERS. I attended this clinic. He played for a couple of hours and gave a guitar seminar. There was a small platform, and he had a chair and a small guitar rig. He played a lot of his solos note for note on the stage... I know, because at the time, I was EXTREMELY familiar with the music of Autograph, and everything he played was STRAIGHT from the albums. I remember that blew me away that he could do that. Someone asked him to play HAMMERHEAD, and since I was probably 6-7 feet away from him, I saw him play HAMMERHEAD up close! It was great. I think he was endorsing CRATE, but I could be wrong. Anyway, there was a good number of people there and he was very gracious and easy to talk to.

I wish he would resurface, and put out a solo album or something. As it stands, he's in my MISSING folder.. along with Vito Bratta.

Shockingly enough it's tapping with yep you guessed it 8 fingers. :P Basically you use your 4 fingers on your fretting hand then tap with 4 on you fretting hand. Jennifer Batten does it a lot also.

I'm not positive that Ozzy sang on one of their songs, BUT he did appear in the video for the song "Loud And Clear" sitting with Vince Neil and some chicks in the audience at a suppossed rehersal. This was in 1987 and Ozzy had that freakish hair style that he had when he made the video for "Crazy Train". Steve did another of his "all hands on neck" solos and the song was not bad.

Sign In Please is very good album. I like "Turn Up The Radio" and "Thrill Of Love" the most. Well, Steve was the guitarist of the year in 1983, :D
Also check out his website: http://www.stevelynch.info
I did send two of my own tap solos to him, he liked them. (Though they were not so special :wink: )

Hey, thanks, IRONJOHN! That was very cool... I didn't know he had a website out there. I'm thinking about ordering that CD he has!

Thanks! I doublechecked on rockdetector, and you're right... they made video appearances... but didn't appear on the song.

From what I remember, those chicks were pretty hot!!!

I had that release, but it wasn't as good as the previous two... it was pretty forgettable in my opinion. But the solos were great!

I was amazed too when i found that site, there were some cool live pics.
Too bad that there isn't any tabs.. :?
But there is said that Autograph's records have been sold over 5 million copies worldwide, :D

That sounds pretty good. Are you going to link it to see what you can do? I think that's one of his best solos.

Other info on AUTOGRAPHI

was never too crazy about the drum sound on SIGN IN PLEASE, and liked the production better on their second album. But it was funny that they thought the production was better on the first album, and I always thought the opposite!

Yes, i will post it as soon as i can.. I have to record it first, :D
It shouldn't take long.
You saw him play HH? That's cool, i think no one has made tabs for it yet.
