Chris Bird

Tasked with de­sign­ing this month’s cover fea­ture, Chris dropped TG’s shred guru Char­lie Grif­fiths a line for as­sis­tance. Shoot over top 46 where you’ll find tips, tricks and fun mu­si­cal ex­am­ples to help you fine-tune your play­ing, from rhythm, tim­ing and solo­ing tech­niques to de­vel­op­ing you rear for mu­sic and de­sign­ing your own prac­tice plan.

Mike took some­time off this is­sue to make a grunge pil­grim age to Seat­tle. Be­fore he left, he found time to put to­gether a killer list of gear for this is­sue, in­clud­ing a TG test of well-stocked gig­ging electrics. “I wanted to find four gui­tars that you could use for any sit­u­a­tion” he beams. Check it out on page 98.

Rob Laing

Rob’ s very own gui­tar work­out this month has in­volved switch­ing back from acous­tic play­ing to elec­tric in his band. “I’ ve got a re­newed en­thu­si­asm for P90s ,” he says. And he’ s been preach­ing that tonal gospel even more fer­vently since he played the new Lee Mali a Ex­plorer (re­view on page 90).
