52 guitarists, week 13—Daron Malakian

I knew nothing about this band, but I knew I needed to learn more about the guitarist in the band—Daron Malakian. This guy was clearly an insanely talented guitarist.

It would be impossible to not include him in my list of inspirational guitarists. 52 guitarists, week 13—Daron Malakian
