Speaking in an interview with Loud Trax, Megadeth lead guitarist Kiko Loureiro spoke about playing with Dave Mustaine. He said that it’s very hard because he has very unique playing style.
Here’s the statement:
“When it comes to the rhythm parts, I play with Dave [Mustaine], so I have to match the way he plays, which is really hard because he has his unique way of playing the rhythms, the riffs. That was the toughest part, I have to say.
But now, I’m playing way better — the rhythms and the riffs now. I’m learning with the master, so it’s great for me. And the solos, I don’t play much [along to the albums] — I just listen and I try to get the vibe of the solos of the song, and then I keep listening and listening, and then I get the instrument and then I try to play.
I’ve been playing guitar for many, many years, so I think it’s just a combination of the feeling that I get from the song and then the way I play.“
