The Aristocrats' Guthrie Govan Shrugs Off Praise (Top Story)

On Thursday The Aristocrats' Guthrie Govan Shrugs Off Praise was a top story. Here is the recap: (Prog) The Aristocrats' Guthrie Govan says he doesn't take gushing praise about his guitar work too seriously. Govan is often described as one of the greatest guitarists on the planet, frequently topping polls. But he doesn't allow himself to get carried away with the attention.

He tells MusicRadar: "I'm grateful people are responding to what I do, but I temper that by understanding that music is not a contest and I don't think anyone is the greatest thing.

"Your goal, once you get deep enough into it, should be just to compete with yourself. You should want to be better than the old you was - other people shouldn't come into it.

"So try and do things you would like to hear that you can't hear in anyone else's music. Find something personal." Read more - here.
