Renowned producer and studio engineer Matt Wallace, known for his work with Faith No More, Deftones, Maroon 5, The Replacements, R.E.M. and many more, recently stressed that Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is in fact a killer guitarist and that many people are missing it.
Adam has indeed been demonstrating his guitar-playing talent during many of the band’s live shows, but the fact that Maroon 5 are more of a pop rock-oriented act seems to decrease his credibility as a six-string wielder among music fans.
Chatting with Ultimate Guitar, the producer remembered meeting the band before their breakthrough album, describing them as an unknown group on an unknown label with an unknown manager, but also a gang that crafted “perfect songs.”
Matt further pointed out that Adam is “really, really good” at playing guitar, branding him a “very instinctive solo guitar player guy.”
