Townshend was one of the first rockers to understand & use the full power of the electric guitar to create larger than life riffs as the backbone of stadium & arena rock anthems. He had the ability to craft huge riffs that became instantly identifiable hooks of the Who’s songs using simple open & power chords, with rhythmic phrasing that combined sharp punctuated chords with long held chords and builds with suspended 4 chords. These are textbook rock rhythm guitar approaches!
