neville.marten@futurenet.com I WAS CHUFFED when we came up with this month’s cover feature on a ’70s blues-rock theme. We wanted a UK and Ireland slant but not to go straight for the household names. I remember hearing these bands brand new, and I bet many of you recall a similar excitement back in the day. I suggested groups that meant something to me; that had either pushed my playing on through emulation of an approach I hadn’t previously heard, or who simply inspired me to play their songs in my latest beat combo. I’d grown up with The Beatles, got into The Kinks, The Who and so on; then Mayall and the British blues boom, then the original electric bluesmen like the Kings, then Cream, Hendrix, etc. But I went completely off heavier…

food for thought

I just put an order in for a new custom guitar with Gray Guitars and I’m super excited about it. But hey, it’s been a while since I bought a new one – at least 18 months! So how many guitars should you own? How many is too many and when is the right time to buy a new one? Well Einstein got it right with his magic formula of F = X+1 where F is the optimal number of guitars and X is your current number of guitars. A simple formula but effective and hard to argue with. Let’s start at the beginning. I would always recommend that your first guitar should be an electric. Some may argue, but that’s my opinion (maybe a debate for another column?) but if that…

session shenanigans

The title ‘Self Employed Musician’ carries with it any number of assumptions, most of them utterly erroneous. But I’ll refrain from trotting out clichés describing sleep patterns which begin and end at 3 (am and pm), heroic consumption of craft beers and an intimate relationship with the Department For Work And Pensions. The reality is very different. And without engaging in some critical self-analysis, can be as dark as a dawn December commute wearing prescription Ray-bans. So the next time you engage an itinerant ukulele player in conversation, I’d avoid patience-testing enquiries as to what ‘real’ job he undertakes when not attempting to entertain the great unwashed. Unless you’ve a thing about A&E departments. First off, the combination of constant insecurity and the reliance on random offers can be more than enough…

instrumental inquisition!

GT: What is it about guitar instrumentals that appeals to you? Plini: When I was about 12 years old, I well and truly fell in love with the electric guitar. I don’t listen to instrumental guitar music for any one thing in particular, but all my favourite songs have one or many of the following: amazing tone, amazing technique, amazing composition, or amazing (non-guitar) instrumentalists. In addition to getting to hear the guitar explored to its fullest extent, it seems that, without vocals, there is more room for each member of a band to shine, so instrumental music often contains some of the best recorded performances of the world’s great session musicians. GT: What can an instrumental provide a listener that a vocal song can’t? Plini: It can be more versatile in how…
