I love iGuitar Magazine, how can you not? It’s FREE and full of heaps of great interviews and lessons and this issue is an Eddie Van Halen special who has probably influenced me the most as a guitarist over the past 24 years.
The Latest issue of the free digital magazine iGuitar is now live and it’s filled with video interviews, interactive guitar lessons and all the latest gear reviews. Not to mention an incredible competition to win a Peavey Delta Blues 15 Amp!
Interviews: EVH SPECIAL! Eddie Van Halen: the lost interview. EVH rocked the guitar playing world when the band’s first album was released. Even today debate still rages about how he got that amazing sound. We’ve unearthed a long-lost interview with US journalist Steven Rosen who has the answers!
Other interviews include Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt and Fredrik Åkesson, Alter Bridge & Creed guitarist Mark Termonti is here to tell us about his new solo project and the Past Master series continues with Part 2 of the Randy Rhoads ‘Lost Interview’ from 1981
