Mike Campbell opens up about his riffs, songs and partnership with Tom Petty in our exclusive feature story. The former Heartbreakers guitarist also talks about his work with Fleetwood Mac and how he waited 12 years to release the debut album from his side project, the Dirty Knobs. We also go behind the scenes of Mick Fleetwood & Friends’ tribute concert to Peter Green featuring David Gilmour, Kirk Hammett, Pete Townshend and Billy Gibbons, with exclusive photos. Also in this issue, Robert Cray talks about ‘That’s What I Heard,’ his Strat-scorching tribute to the sound of Sam Cooke’s 1960s R&B, and Lizzo’s guitarist Celisse talks about her fret-ripping tribute to Sister Rosetta Tharpe and plans to release her own solo album. In addition, we sit down with Joe Satriani for an inside look at his new album, ‘Shapeshifter,’ and get a surprising look at his collection of vintage guitars, many of which have played a role in his albums over the years. This issue also includes interviews with Lilly Hiatt, Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws and Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, who shares the five riffs that influenced his blazing blues style. In gear, we get the inside story behind Martin’s revolutionary new SC-13E acoustic guitar that took NAMM 2020 by storm, and take a look at the über-deluxe $4,000-plus Nik Huber Piet. Reviews include the Ernie Ball Music Man Sabre, B.C. Rich Mockingbird, Eastman SB55DC/v, Mojotone BlackOut British combo, Suhr Reactive Load/IR, EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath V3 and JBL Eon One Compact Rechargeable P.A. In lessons, we show you 21 Natural Minor Scale Riffs in the styles of players like Jimmy Page and Randy Rhoads, and pay tribute to the late great jazz guitarist and teacher Vic Juris.
