As if playing the famous “More Cowbell” episode of Saturday Night Live wasn’t cool enough, rock/fusion (emphasis on the rock) virtuoso Rafael Moreira – who invites us into his home studio for this epic jam and guitar hang/interview – has also worked with superstar singers such as P!nk and Christina Aguilera, his hero Paul Stanley, and played huge guitar moments in the house band of such hit television shows as The Voice, Rock Star: INXS, and American Idol.

Plus, Rafa details some of his solo music, the music of his hard rock band, Magnetico, and even plays a little drums for us.

Meanwhile, host Jude Gold hits the “50 out of 50” touring milestone.

Special shout-out to G7th Capos for the custom “No Guitar Is Safe” capo we award Rafa at the end of the episode.
