The Joy Of PLEKs

Comments
The fretboard is where a heck of a lot of our guitaristic expression occurs. It’s where our fingers contact the strings to sound specific notes (of course), and that means that it’s an intersection between the physical and conceptual aspects of our playing. It’s where the strings get pushed, bent, tapped, hammered, pulled, flicked and otherwise harassed in the name of art.

When the record landed in stores in August 1980, there was no picture of the band on the LP sleeve. In fact, there was no picture at all. The somber-looking package contained one of the greatest rock albums of the ’80s—an album that, 35 years later, still makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, even more so if you know the story of how Back in Black came to be.

For any guitarist, signature gear is a huge honor. It’s a vote of confidence from a guitar company that you love, and an entry into the esteemed ranks of folks such as Les Paul, Slash, Tony Iommi, Jimmy Page, Angus Young and many other greats. Joe Bonamassa has well and truly earned his place among these greats, playing professionally since a very young age and playing to countless thousands of fans, whether solo, with vocalist Beth Hart, or with his band of a few years ago, Black Country Communion.

When the Edge and Jack White stare at another guitar player like wide-eyed teenage fanboys, that player must have some serious mojo — Rock of Gibraltar status. And Jimmy Page certainly has earned his place at the zenith of electric guitar history, crafting riffs and tones that will forever help define the sound of both rock and blues six-string.

This Day in Music Spotlight: Sharona Gets The Knack

It’s one of the most enduring riffs in pop history, and it took forever to turn into a song. Guitarist Berton Averre had noodled around with the snappy “bunna-nunna-nuh-nuh” chord sequence for ages, even before he joined the L.A. New Wave outfit, The Knack, in 1977. But he was never able to figure out just what to do with it.

Alex Lifeson of Rush turns 61 on August 27 2014. Why celebrate Alex's 61st? Well, Rush are planning a 41st Anniversary Tour for 2015, so Gibson.com thought we'd stay as kookily contrary as the legendary Toronto trio.

When I was about ten years old I found a book at the local library - Denny Laine’s Guitar Book. Before I even knew guitar magazines existed, this was where I got all my information about guitars. Laine - guitarist for Paul McCartney & Wings - covered everything from the basics of playing to information about what gear to use.

If you’ve started recording with a computer, the learning curve can be daunting—plugging a guitar into a computer is very different from plugging into an amp. So, let’s de-mystify a fundamental element of all computer-based audio: the audio interface.
