The thunder of Johnny Ramones guitar


One of the most powerful forces known to all rockers, the thundering guitar sound emanating from the wall of over-driven speakers powered from Johnny’s stack of  100 watt Marshall heads.

Johnny developed his sound early on, brutalizing his Mosrite Ventures II and hammering those bar chords in a frenzied style that has had more influence on punk rock than even his leather motorcycle jacket and ripped jeans. His chugging muted bar chords that exploded into thundering power chords literally defined the punk  rock guitar sound.  To read more about this guitar legend and find out exactly what equipment Johnny used to get his signature sound check out this site Compiled by Ian Harper & Chris Lamy.
