This month, we’re taking you on a journey to play better blues. One of the key things we want to deliver here is more than just a disparate collection of licks and riffs: as always we want to give you something that is applicable in a real world situation. So, we’ve approached this month’s cover feature from the perspective of jamming - playing parts and interacting with other musicians; ‘But I’m not in a band!’ No worries, because we’ve also provided five authentic blues jam tracks for you to ‘sit-in’ with. Also this issue, we’ve lined up an all-killer list of tunes for you to learn, starting with Rockshool’s version of Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight, plus Queen’s One Vision, The Jam’s That’s Entertainment and Knopfler’s classic riff from Dire Straits’ Money…

CHRIS BIRD Chris has been on a tonal quest this issue, keenly trying to recreate guitar tones to jam along to our Riff Of The Month and Classic Track tunes. “Mark Knopfler’s tone in Money For Nothing is fiendishly tough to dial in; Brian May’s sound in One Vision probably even more so,” says Mr B, “but our contributors’ audio backing tracks are spot on!” MICHAEL ASTLEY-BROWN Digital modelling is on Mike’s mind. First, he was wowed by the functionality of Positive Grid’s BIAS Amp 2, but after hearing that Thrice’s revered tonehound Dustin Kensrue employed the Line 6 Helix on the band’s new album, our gear guru contemplated ditching his beloved pedalboard and amp. Surely not! ROB LAING Before Rob takes his place in the big chair he’s been making the most of his…

One of the great advantages of iconic names working under the same umbrella is the ability to share hot assets – and that’s exactly the case with Fender, which has paired its two speediest brands for a marriage made in contemporary shred heaven. Charvel’s DK24 boasts a body shape derived from Jackson’s iconic, slightly-smaller-than-normal Dinky outline, but kits it out with Charvel’s no-nonsense string-through-body hardtail bridge and a No-Load tone control, which removes the entire tone control from the circuit for unadulterated, pure pickup tones. This Pro-Mod version brings the price tag down to £879, with the option of the Charcoal Grey finish you see here, as well as Floyd Rose-equipped options for the divebombers out there. Here’s what else sets this hot-rodded collaboration apart……

GEAR Corting Favour We love a good mash-up here on TG and so does Cort. The Sunset TC has surfaced in the US at $599 and fuses the features of its single-cut, LP-style model with the T-style TC. Fano fans will also note that it’s reminiscent of the company’s pricier SP6. The Sunset TC has an ash body, bolt-on hard maple 9.5" radius neck and jatoba ’board with two distressed finish options – Worn Butter Blonde and Worn White Blonde. The pickup combination is the Duncan designed P90-1 and TC103B single-coil. WHEN Now EVENT Schools Of Rock BIMM’s Summer Schools will be returning to Brighton, Bristol, Manchester and London offering budding musicians aged 11 -17 (who are not absolute beginners) the chance to take one of three five-day courses; indie and pop or rock and metal music…

I got my first real six-string… “My parents bought me a BC Rich Bich NJ Series for Christmas when I was 12 and that actually stayed with me for the longest time. I remember playing that when we did Burn The Priest shows and early Lamb Of God. I still have it, it’s hanging up in the den in my house. I still have the receipt my dad got from the pawnshop. It was like $200. It needs a bit of TLC, it has 18-year-old strings on it, so it deserves to be taken care of.” Just a castaway, an island lost at sea… “ESP just sent me a USA Eclipse model, it’s gorgeous man, it plays and feels so great. I would take that guitar, a Mesa Boogie TC Triple Crown 100W…
