About this blog: the machine that conquered the world

Nearly fifty years ago millions got into electric guitar through the likes of the Ventures, Duane Eddy and the Shadows’ Hank Marvin. Since then there has been a guitar revolution. Millions play rock, jazz or blues guitar and millions more are learning. The virtuosity of guitar players has increased in quantum leaps, with the likes of Vai, Satriani and Tony MacAlpine setting new standards. Even the biggest fans don’t know all the players and all the music. That’s where this blog comes in – it will be a clearing house of information and views, a showcase for the music, a guide to albums and downloads, and also provide news about gigs and events – on top of stugg about the gear. We’ll be launching this blog in July 2008 when a reasonable amount of material has been assembled.

  1. Have not had time to immerse myself amongst all these guitar treats as yet, but look forward to doing so. Bit of trouble getting into site-Security Suite very suspicious of it!

  2. Hello der,

    I’m promoting an one off bluesy/jam rock project, Suede Ape, that brought together some pretty talented and creative LA musicians from different backgrounds including Geoff Rowan (In Sepia), and Andrew Monzon (Last Legs). Instead of a typical guitar, bass, drums line up, some electronic elements (kaos pad, synth, drum pad, etc.) were used to keep it fresh. There was no big concept besides the simple idea of editing a jam into an album, but that’s kind of what’s exciting about an unplanned thing like this: your not sure where it will go. Have a listen. See if you like…
