    Default Zakk Wylde?

    I'm wanting to check out some of Zakk Wylde's music. I've never really heard much from him, which album do you guys think I should get first? Does Zakk have any instrumental albums/songs? I'm really wanting to hear what this guy can do.

    I agree if you like southern rock , in this case heavy balls to the wall Marshalls and Les Paul souhtern rock. I can recomend Black Label Societys Blessed Hellride and Sonic Brew . All his stuff is good , some better than others .

    I'd recommend Book of Shadows first, since it takes time to get used to Zakk's style in BLS, and in Book of Shadows he has a very clear tone, you'll get an impression of him as of a guitarist at once. Next I'd recommend Pride and Glory indeed, very versatile album with lotsa styles.

    On his work in Society, it's hard to recommend. I'm hanging on his forums, and EACH album gets someone's vote as most favourite. For me it's Stronger than Death, but Blessed Hellride is considered as his best.

    Black Label Society's new Offering, "Mafia" is AWESOME!
    Zakk really mixes it up on this one, experimenting with some stuff hes not known for using (Talk Box, Octiva, Sustainer pu). THAT one is really good-Red43j
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    If you want dude, or anybody for that matter, drop me a pm with your email addy and I'll send you some bootleg acoustic stuff from Zakk that I have. Some instrumental stuff with him just soloing on acoustic is on there as well. Really cool stuff.

    If you're going for pure Zakk, his Book of Shadows cd, Pride and Glory, and Mafia are good examples of his ability. They are also a little more "new user" friendly. Now, if you're in to the heavy riff's, then buy his entire catalog. The guy keeps getting better and better.

    Also check out his Boozed, Broken, and Battered, Live DVD. It's packed full of the BLS hits.
