Many years back, I was jamming with a few guys and I got to the jam a bit late. So when I got there, I hurriedly set up my gear, switched on the power and started playing without doing a check of my pedal settings. In transport or while I was setting up the level […]
The early ’70s were a high point for Neil Young. 1972’s “Harvest” is often heralded as his most popular album, and 1973 had his first live album, “Time Fades Away.” Now a new document of that timeframe has come to light with “Tuscaloosa,” featuring Tim...

Al Cisneros has teamed up with Rickenbacker for a limited edition signature bass based on their flagship model. The 4003AC is outfitted with a few of the Sleep/Om bassist’s requests.
While we mostly know Leonid & Friends for their incredible Chicago covers, they also cover other bands (including Earth, Wind & Fire). Now they’re adding Blood, Sweat & Tears to the mix, with a cover of “Spinning Wheel.”
Back in the ’70’s and ’80’s (yeah, I’m dating myself), rock and roll was rife with guitar solos. And not just the deep cuts on albums, but the songs that got actual airplay. Think “Freebird” or “Show Me the Way” or anything from Clapton. The guitar solo was an integral...
Here’s Richie Kotzen’s new single and video, ‘Venom.’ Love the guitar sounds on this one, and the guitar/bass doubling. And who wouldn’t want a red Kotzen Strat, eh? If you want some of that Kotzen tone yourself and you can’t get your paws on his signature Strat, check out th...
The world lost a musical icon with the passing of Dr. John. However, a new Rolling Stone article explains that the New Orleans pianist recorded one final album before his death. We also now know that Will Lee provided the low end.
Check this beauty out! It features a two-piece ash body with a flame koa top and a one-piece, quartersawn European maple neck. The custom Tim Shaw overwound 59 gold-foil single-coil pickups are warm and clear, while the Shaw custom Filter’Tron-style humbucking pickup...

One of the great things about the “Ask Damian” column is that Damian gets questions from people at all levels, including those just starting out. This week, he dives in to the basics of intervals.
I think The Main Squeeze is one of the most exciting bands out there right now, and the videos from their Red Rocks performance are just killer. Here’s a clip they shared in April featuring their take on the theme from Game of Thrones.
The jazz trio of Paul Bley, Paul Motian, and Gary Peacock released a reunion album in 1998 called “Not Two, Not One.” They spent the next year touring together, which Peacock says was over 35 years in the making. Now part of that magical tour has become its own album.

Over the years, I’ve heard many cringe-worthy horror stories of damaged guitars, from cracked tops to delaminated nitro to broken head stocks, etc., etc.. In some cases, the damage couldn’t be avoided; for instance, due to flooding. But in a majority of the cases I’ve heard a...
Sandberg Guitars has announced a new limited edition model to their California Grand Dark series, which was introduced three years ago. The new bass is limited to 40 pieces and comes in a high-gloss orange finish.
Guitarist Tom Ibarra and his quartet took the stage at Caveau des Oubliettes in 2016 and performed this excellent cover of “Cause We’ve Ended as Lovers.” I really dig Romain Labaye’s fretless work on this one. He even quotes Jaco during his solo.
A little over a year after Caleb Scofield tragically passed away, Cave In has released their sixth studio album, entitled “Final Transmission.” The album stands as the final recordings of the bassist, who died in a car accident in New Hampshire.
I love checking out all the basses people post on Instagram, but this one made me stop scrolling. This Alchemist 4/32 by Owl Bass Guitars first caught my eye with its killer claro walnut top.

This clip of Majestica’s music video for the song “Above the Sky” immediately caught my attention, and once you press play you’ll know why. Bassist Chris David kicks off the blazing power metal song with a blistering riff before twin guitars kick in. Get ready to...
Bob Dylan’s 1975-76 “Rolling Thunder Revue” tour was an enormous undertaking featuring him alongside Joan Baez, Roger McGuinn, Joni Mitchell, Ronee Blakely, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. The tour is the subject of a new documentary and a 14-disc collection.
