Hard Rock, Rock, Soul, Americana, Folk
Everything really,but mostly Rock,Rockabilly/Hillbilly Bop,Blues,and a bit of Western Swing type stuff,and Chet and Merle type pickin'.
I don't gig anymore, so it just depends on the mood i'm in as to what i want to make a hash of.
My Gretsch 5420t can cover anything from Church music to country. I have not tried rap yet. I am thinking it might do some damage to the pups.
I have been playing country, pop, and early rock-50's-60's and 70's. There doesn't seem to anything they can't do.
There's nothing a FilterTron-equipped trestle braced Gretsch can't tackle.
I play a mix of rock, pop, folk, and Americana on my Gretsch.
Is "poorly" a style?
Everything except heavy metal ...... from clean thru to high gain
If you think Gretsch sounds great thru a Fender - try it thru a Mesa Boogie.
And the other two kinds: Rock and Roll.
You can’t play piano on a guitar, not even a Gretsch.
Got me there! Lol...!
I'm with everyone here, there isn't much I don't use the gretsches for, the beauty about having solid and hollow body is that you can pretty much do anything in my opinion.
But in saying that apart from my schecters (which don't really get played anymore lol) I've never really loved any other guitar brand that I've owned so I guess I'm biased.
I play the "before" style in the learn to play guitar videos.
Chet made it work for him.
Malcolm has had a signature model for many years now at Electromatic, Pro Line and Custom Shop levels, well known Gretsch player.
The 5420 has a bit less “Gretschie” tone than other Gretschs I’ve owned. This is because of the Blacktop pickups. Some people swap those out for more twang. Me, I like them and feel I can get a wider range of tones out of my 5420. I can even get a warm jazzy tone if I want it,
Nothin else than Rock'n'roll.
Lately I've been recording a lot of Americana stuff with my acoustic but the T-Rose is beginning to take on its fair share of that as well.
I literally play all styles on my G5230.
Everything.!!! Blues, Classic Rock, the Grunge thing Lot of contemporary Rock stuff which is the style I use for my OG music. Many will say that Gretsch guitars fit a particular mold of music. I don't allow that thinking to influence me. My Gretsch is a workhorse. I have been in the studio recording with it. Soon I'll post one of my tunes. It will show the versatility.
Yep any guitar should be able to do anything. I play rock, pop, roots/Americana, and occasionally trip hop (and I (ab)use this term very generally)type stuff.
