AS WE PREPARED this issue’s salute to 2019, I thought about the stories we’ve covered over the past 12 months. In general, it’s been a great year for music in its many forms. On the bright side, live music is thriving across the country on stages small and large. That’s a good thing, as live performances and merchandise sales are the means by which nearly all artists, established or not, make their living today. But things are looking darker for artists in the recording industry. Although recorded music consumption rose 35.4 percent in 2018 (the most recent year for which numbers exist), album sales fell 18.2 percent and song sales 28.8 percent. Which is certainly why, for me, the Sheryl Crow interview in our December issue is one of the more…

A SCOTTISH ADAGE states, “The child born on Christmas will have a special fortune.” Steve Wariner is living proof. The Musician’s Hall of Fame in Nashville inducted the four-time Grammy winner on October 22, in recognition of decades of virtuoso guitar playing, singing and songwriting. Although he is a renowned country music legend, Wariner is fundamentally, to turn a phrase, an eclectic electric artist. To borrow the title of his 2011 album, his chart-topping career has been a “guitar laboratory,” with varied styles in the mix. The Hall of Fame accolade comes as Wariner, on his retrospective Back on Life’s Highway tour, approaches his 65th birthday. Although never one to rest on his laurels, he agreed to reflect on his journey thus far. What does the induction mean at this juncture…

ADRIAN QUESADA WAS curious the first time Prince’s amplifier showed up onstage next to his rig at the Rio in Las Vegas. A few weeks later, when the Purple One came out to perform with Quesada’s band, Grupo Fantasma, it marked the beginning of a whirlwind that set them continent hopping with the late guitarist.

It’s…

my life in five riffs

MOLLY TUTTLE’S SONGWRITING and guitar playing are rooted in the bluegrass she grew up on, which she took to Berklee College of Music and developed into her own style. As much a student of theory as technique, she studied chord structures alongside flatpicking, crosspicking and clawhammer playing. Tuttle dug back to her roots to pull out five compositions that showcase her mastery of the instrument. These are the riffs that inspired her guitar playing. “ANNABELLE” GILLIAN WELCH WITH DAVID RAWLINGS “I’m a huge Gillian Welch fan. I discovered her music when I was a teenager and at the same time fell in love with David Rawlings’ guitar playing. He really takes risks with tensions and notes that aren’t in chord tones, which I love. He uses intervals — like minor seconds and fourths…
