Eljuri is a huge fan of the lead guitar work of the classic-rock era.

Cecilia Villar Eljuri is a triple threat: She's an accomplished songwriter, a great vocalist and one hell of a guitar player. Her work in all three areas is on full display on her new album, La Lucha.

With Eljuri as Alt.Latino's guest DJ this week, we indulge our passion for music that shows off the lead guitar. Her playlist is heavy on classic rock — because, quite frankly, that era is when many of the guitarists who set the bar for lead guitar playing were plying their craft.

Turn up the volume and listen in — and check out more of Eljuri's playlist below.
