We can all hit brick walls as players at some point; when our own playing starts to bore us. Repetition from being stuck in comfort zones happens and it’s not unusual. Sometimes the key is finding ways to take a step back and learn how to move forwards in a way that’s fun and suited to you. What do you want out of your guitar playing and how can you change your routine to get it? We know your time is limited and precious – life can get in the way of our music – and the word ‘practice’ can feel like homework. So we’ve really thought about how you can get the most out of your time with the guitar in an inspiring, accessible way then build that up…

CHRIS BIRD This month, TG’s tuition editor got up close and personal with Audient’s Sono audio interface, putting it to good use to record some of the audio for our regular Getting Started With and What The F? lessons. Find out Mr B’s thoughts and whether or not it lives up to his exacting standards in this month’s Gear Diary on p106. MICHAEL ASTLEY-BROWN Our gear guru has been up to all kinds of wonderful things this month – putting Aria’s latest double-cut to the test (p94) and getting hands-on with Gibson’s 2019 range over on MusicRadar (much more on that next issue). “I also interviewed one of my heroes – Soundgarden legend Kim Thayil,” he adds. Impressive! STUART WILLIAMS Former TG editor Stu donned his guitar interview cape once again to quiz Foo Fighter…

Yamaha has made a new play for the budget acoustic market with an entirely new line of head-turning acoustic guitars – meet the Storia. The three-strong, affordable line-up offers distinctive aesthetics – most notably a pop of colour from the silk-screened inner label – but also beginner-friendly playability, with narrower string spacing, low action and a slim neck with hand-rolled fingerboard edges. Each of the three concert-bodied models – the Storia I, II and III – boasts a solid spruce (I) or mahogany top (II and III), with laminate mahogany back and sides, plus a nato neck, walnut fretboard and passive under-saddle pickup. Yamaha reckons these will make an ideal first guitar or an acoustic that will complement your home décor – and at £354 each, we could see these…

THE DEVIN YOU KNOW Devin Townsend, Paul Gilbert and Eric Gales are the latest acts to be added to our UK Guitar Show line-up in September at London’s Business Design Centre. The prog titan will be playing solo on the main stage on Saturday 21 September and after we saw his one-man show in the UK earlier this year we can confirm you’re in for a treat. “It’s a real honour to be invited to play and do a clinic at this year’s UK guitar show!” Devin tells us. “I’ve been working as a guitarist for many years and am happy to have an opportunity to share how the instrument plays into my creative process.

It’s the guitar man… “I started playing trumpet in elementary school, but one day there was a performance for the school and there were a group of young girls, my peers, all fascinated with the guitar player. I knew at that point, ‘I want to be that guy…’. No one was talking about the trumpet player. Then the physical form of the guitar looked like a fascinating thing to me. The curves, the shape of it, the build, and all these years later, I think I’m still obsessed with that.” “HE DIDN’T TELL ME ANY DETAILS ABOUT IT… I FOUND OUT AFTER IT WAS BOB DYLAN’S GUITAR!” Selling the drama… “My primary motivation was just to write songs. On Live’s first album Mental Jewelry, I know there’s not a guitar solo on that record.…

THE MURDER CAPITAL Dublin’s masters of dark punk dynamism Listen to the debut album from Dublin’s The Murder Capital, When I Have Fears, and you might hear gritty punk; shoe-gazing, atmospheric kraut-rock; or even first-wave 80s goth influence. But what you can’t miss is a sense of urgency. “At the heart of it, it is an album about the human condition,” says guitarist Cathal Roper. “Our interpretation of that at this point in our lives. No doubt that will change as we get older. [But right now] we are at the beginning of our 20s and, undoubtedly, living in a fast-paced environment.” There is some growing sense, buried like a cyst in the social fabric of 2019, that time is running out. The Murder Capital somehow encapsulate that paralysed tension. When I Have Fears…
