VIDEO: Ace Frehley on his Solos and Playing Technique

Everyone’s favorite Spaceman Ace Frehley celebrates his birthday today (April 27), and since it’s “Guitar Month,” we’d be remiss not to honor the KISS guitarist.

Ace’s unique sound helped define “The Hottest Band In The World” and led to classic solos and riffs from “Deuce” to “Shock Me” and everywhere in between. When it comes to solos, however, Ace says in the video below from Noisey that the best ones had one major requirement: “I always thought the best guitar solos were the ones you could hum.”

…And boy, did he heed his own advice!

For solo talk and more, check out the video below!
