Steve Morse: Deep Purple

Steve Morse is potentially one of the most diverse and virtuosic guitarists alive today. A true master of the guitar, Steve is an extremely versatile guitarist. His style and compositional skills draw from classical, jazz, country, blues, folk, and rock. As a founder of the fusion band Dixie Dregs, Steve has been playing and touring since the 1970’s. He has also released over ten albums between his solo efforts and The Steve Morse Band. In 1992 he replaced the legendary guitarist Richie Blackmore in the rock band Deep Purple. Steve currently plays in Deep Purple where he continues to record and tour extensively.

Steve’s approach on the guitar is one of extreme precision. He has the ability to play extremely complex lines and still remain musical. He is known for producing an exceptionally clean sound through double picking a majority of his notes. Through his dedication to the instrument he has also been a recipient of Guitar Player Magazine’s “Best Overall Guitarist” over five consecutive years.

This is a live clip taken from a Deep Purple performance in Australia in 1999. This is Steve’s solo in the concert. In this 8:37 clip, he plays through an eclectic mix of style and technique demonstrating his immense ability on the guitar.
