Total Guitar - - EDITOR'S LETTER -

Have you ever watched other play­ers play the blues and won­dered how they get their chord voic­ings just right? Maybe you’re lack­ing in­spi­ra­tion when it comes to lead play­ing, or per­haps you’ve never re­ally dab­bled with blues gui­tar play­ing in earnest. Well, this month is for you. We’ve com­piled 10 pages of blues lessons for you to sink your teeth into cov­er­ing every­thing you need to know to sound more au­then­tic and con­fi­dent whether you’re sit­ting in solo­ing at a jam night, or play­ing along to your favourite 12-bars at home. Else­where, we’ve once again packed the is­sue full of great tabs (Me­tal­lica, Si­mon and Gar­funkel, Led Zep­pelin, Joni Mitchell) com­plete with back­ing tracks to play along with. In our fea­tures sec­tion we catch up with Troy and Dean from Queens Of The Stone Age to find out about their new Mark Ron­son-pro­duced al­bum, plus Joe Bona­massa and Glenn Hughes tell us all about re­unit­ing to ride again as Black Coun­try Com­mu­nion. It doesn’t end there though, be­cause we’ve got re­views of the hottest new af­ford­able gear from the likes of Ster­ling by Mu­sic Man, Boss, Martin and many more. En­joy the is­sue, we’ll see you next month!
