Stuart Bull : Hey everyone I Guitar 2 is now available. www.iguitarmag.com/issue2iGuitar Magazine - Issue 2 www.iguitarmag.com
Guitar Interactive, issue two is ready to take to the stage. The launch issue, distributed free by Lick Library, was the first truly interactive online magazine for guitarists, and this second issue is set to deliver an even more rewarding experience to the reader. It is packed full of a diverse range of articles and uses ground breaking technologies to provide readers with a special combination of information and inspiration.
Issue two leads with a video interview of Joe Satriani by his former pupil Danny Gill. The feature makes the most of using new on-line technology to supplement the interview with a series of guitar tuition videos showing you how to nail Joe’s style and technique. These videos have all the standard Lick Library hallmarks, the spilt screen showing what both of Danny’s hands are doing at the same time, the ability to replay time and time again, and of course Danny breaks it all down into easy to follow bite size pieces.
Next, bringing all these elements together, Guitar Interactive reviews Joe’s signature gear from Ibanez, Vox (Pedals) and Marshall. This feature also includes and excusive interview with the Marshall designer who personally handles the modifications to Joe’s amps.
This is followed by an appreciation of the late great Gary Moore by Jamie Humphries. Gary was acknowledged as one of the finest and most expressive blues and rock guitarists of his generation. With a natural soulful style, and an ability to play gloriously in many different fashions, he was widely respected across all genres. ‘Music’ he once said, ‘just flows through me.’ Who better than Jamie, one of Britain’s top rock guitarists and tutors to bring to life this hefty style analysis, as he walks you through an interactive celebration of this wonderful man.
Brand new to this second issue is an acoustic section. This fresh innovative section brings together an interview with Doyle Dykes, the master of the finger style of playing, plus exclusive footage of the show Doyle played for Taylor Guitars at NAMM 2011. Issue two also features over 50 pages of product reviews including guitars from Ibanez, Taylor, Martin and Schecter plus amps from Blackstar, Orange and pedals and effects from Line 6, Vox, Tascam, Rothwell and much much more.
All these fast paced articles are seamlessly linked with compelling columns, exciting editorials and of course even more reviews than were crammed into issue one. You can investigate, by direct links, further technical specifications of the products being reviewed, check out advertiser’s websites directly, and email to friends or share via social networks anything that takes your fancy.
The debut issue proved a runaway success, attracting over 90,000 readers. Issue two builds on that success and has over 180 pages and features more than 4.5 hours of video content, promising to be an even bigger and better blockbuster.
