What makes an icon? This month’s magazine features a collection of subjects that have inspired their fair share of devotion over the years. Listen to any of their greatest albums or live recordings and you’ll hear Rory Gallagher and Jimmy Page stamp their authority over a piece of music from the outset. Both players brought a potent cocktail of guile and abandon to the table and both could be graceful or explosive when required. We get up close with some of the guitars and amps that powered Rory’s passionate take on the blues in a massive 20-page feature that begins on p34, including rare instruments from his archive that you won’t see anywhere else. Meanwhile, Jimmy Page’s most important Led Zeppelin gear is charted from p58 onwards, with insights from the man…

ARE FRIENDS ELECTRIC? Dear Guitar Magazine, I can never understand the following: 1 Why do people enjoy social eating? Food is fuel, you don’t need to make polite conversation…2 Why do people like dancing? What’s all that about?3 Why do saxophone players think they are so good, playing monophonic tone machines? But the one that really gets me is… Why do guitarists have to put pickups in acoustic guitars? If you want to go electric, plug in your Strat, or your Les Paul, for that matter… ANDREW S REDDING, ROTHERHAM, UK We’re perhaps not the best qualified people to discuss your first three observations, Andrew, but there are very good reasons to have a pickup system in an acoustic guitar. There’s still no substitute for high-quality microphone when recording, but if you want to play…

“I HAD OTHER INTERESTS, BUT MY PASSION FOR MUSIC FELT LIKE NOTHING ELSE I’D KNOWN. IT HELPED ME THROUGH HARD TIMES AS A CHILD AND I USED SONGWRITING AS A FORM OF THERAPY” When did you first discover the guitar? “My mom has been playing and singing in bands since before I was born, so there were always instruments in the house. I grew up in a mountain town in the heart of Colorado and was exposed to folk and bluegrass early on. I taught myself some chords and wrote my first song on my parents’ guitar when I was 10. “There was never a question in my mind about whether or not I wanted to play music. I had other interests of course, but my passion for music felt like nothing…

album spotlight billie marten feeding seahorses by hand

Although Billie Marten sometimes sings of a need for boldness or confidence, she always seems to do so with articulacy that belies her age. Still only 19, her sophomore record is bursting with intricate guitar lines and maturing lyrical topics. Here, the Ripon native talks about her favourite guitar excerpts from her second full-length LP…. BOXES “We really layered things up on this song. Everything. I think there were two or three electrics, acoustic, electric bass, overdubs, along with all the synth-y thickness and various drums to make a proper meaty sound. For electric songs, I always use my ’83 Tele Elite, which is supposed to be for people who are very good at mega solos – but I find it works so smoothly for picking, like at the end of this…

win three new fender pedals

WORTH £475 Fender has been a trailblazer in the art of guitar and amplifier craft for over seven decades, but until recently, the most famous guitar company in the world was relatively quiet when it came to pedal offerings. That was until NAMM 2018, when it revealed the first batch of its all-new stompbox range, releasing a varied line that was designed in California with the help of musicians, producers and industry stalwarts alike. This calendar year has seen the pedal wizards at Fender reveal six new offerings – and we’re giving you the chance to win the new MTG Tube Distortion, Tre-Verb Digital Reverb/Tremolo and Lost Highway Phaser. You can read our in-depth review on p116, but in the meantime, here’s the skinny: the MTG Tube Distortion makes use of a…
