The lovely Rebecca Dirks of Premier Guitar catches up with Anthrax guitarist and founder Scott Ian to get a run-through of his rig and the stable of guitars he’s currently playing through in concert. But I’m sorry, how many guitars can he have to have lost track of one for over 20 years?!
via Guitar Noize:
Alex Chadwick plays 100 famous guitar riffs in one take giving you a chronological history of rock n’ roll. I’ve got to say this is very impressive to do this all in one take!!
The list of riffs includes everything from surf music to grunge, Chet Atkins to Metallica, and just about everything in between, all played by one guy in one take on one Fender Strat. Pretty cool stuff.
Joe Satriani himself recently posted this video of guitarist Rhett Butler on his Facebook page performing an arrangement of “Always With Me, Always With You” on two—yes two!—guitars. At the same time. Seriously. I can’t even play that song on one guitar. To quote Satch:
this one is a bit insane…
Frankly, I think Butler is just showing off. And what kind of name is Rhett Butler anyways?!
Frankly, I don’t give a damn.1
Connecticut PBS affiliate CPTV visited the workshop of luthier and Hamer co-founder Jol Dantzig to discuss guitar building on the station’s “Spotlight on the Arts” segment of All Things Connecticut. Hear Dantzig talk about what got him into guitars and how he is bringing new life to old electrical components.
It’s time for another rig rundown with Premier Guitar. This time, in lieu of having their techs go through their rigs, Mr. Big shred-meisters Paul Gilbert and Billy Sheehan discuss their guitars, amps and effects themselves, all the while displaying how genuinely nice and down-to-earth they both are. No rockstar egos here, boys and girls. The only question I have is … where’s Rebecca?!
