While I was reviewing the ToneWoodAmp this issue (p104) it reminded me how inspiring new gear can be – having effects on call on my trusty dreadnought while sitting in front of the lounge TV in the evening made me want to play more at home. However, there’s been plenty of times when it wasn’t a piece of gear that’s done that. Tool’s Adam Jones (p30) talking about his positive energy for music is a case in point; he’s a hugely successful musician who is still looking for ways to challenge himself and retain the joy that made him pick up the guitar in the first place. A guitarist’s inspiration comes from many sources; it can be as wallet-denting as a £1,000 tube amp or as simple as a new chord……

making this month’s mag

CHRIS BIRD Currently seeing chord boxes in his sleep after laying out this month’s mammoth cover feature lesson, Chris has professed a wish never to look at another chord again - well, until next month at least. You can check out Birdman’s chord proofreading skills on p48. Just don’t write in if you spot any mistakes. We don’t think he’ll be able to take it.

the new boss

The effects pedal market has never been fiercer and Boss, despite its reputation as a creator of classic units, isn’t standing still. A case in point is the four new models in its premium 200 range: the MD-200 Modulation, OD-200 Hybrid Drive, DD-200 Digital Delay and EQ-200 Graphic Equalizer (all £249 each). Here we have the delay and EQ and Boss is drawing on its experience to offer feature-packed pedals. The DD-200 condenses features from their flagship DD-500 into a compact yet powerful delay package. Graphic EQ is an oft-overlooked weapon in the pedalboard armoury, but the EQ-200 is nonetheless a potent addition to any arsenal. Let’s take a closer look……

Rock ‘N’ Roll Train “When I listen to music on shuffle, and then Mystery Train comes on – it’s so primitive, and sounds so great, it takes me back. I always think, ‘Jesus Christ!’ It’s the sensibility of it.” Quarantine The Past “THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO YOU ARE CLOSEST TO IN LIFE. THOSE BONDS ARE SERIOUS” “I see it with Chrissie [Hynde]. We’ve just made a record and it is ‘The New One’. She always thinks about the next thing. She does not look back. She has done a jazz record, with an orchestra, we’ve just did Hollywood Bowl with an orchestra. We’ve reached a strange point, the way [nostalgia] has manifested itself as heritage acts. It’s just about bands coming back – it’s a very strange thing.” People Take Pictures Of Each Other “That’s…
