There’s only one electric instrument worth discussing, says the veteran guitarist behind Elvis, Ricky Nelson, Roy Orbison and Emmylou Harris
In this classic GP interview, the legendary Living Colour guitarist discusses why he embraced his fusion side – despite that word's "dirty, dusty, foul" reputation – on his 2006 solo LP, and how his relationship with two-handed tapping has changed over the years.
He's played with Eric Clapton, the Everly Brothers, Emmylou Harris, the Crickets, Joe Cocker, and countless others, but – as he told GP in this 2010 interview – Albert Lee is always, still, looking for "that perfect night onstage."
The late blues guitar great discusses channeling Roy Buchanan with a Tele, the best piece of playing advice he ever got, and the hard-rock guitar icon who borrowed liberally from his "Parisienne Walkways" melody in this 2007 GP interview.
In this 1974 GP interview, Frampton discusses the inner workings of his trademark '54 Les Paul Custom, how he got started modding guitars at the age of nine, and why he thinks it’s "cheating" to use fuzz.
The late Strat-master discusses his thoughts on volume (and when loud becomes too loud), playing classical melodies on the electric guitar, and why he favored a trusty Fender amp onstage and in the studio.
For the critically acclaimed 'Chaos and Creation in the Backyard,' McCartney was encouraged to abandon his Les Paul, but also found time to beef up his acoustic fingerpicking, and plug into his old Vox AC30.
