The Most Misheard Lyrics In Rock History

Once upon a time, in my first job upon landing in Los Angeles, a co-worker once randomly asked “Do you like the Cult?” “Sure!” I replied, having seen them on the Sonic Temple tour not long before relocating. “My favorite song of theirs is ‘Party Woman’!” he exclaimed. “What?” I was momentarily confused. “What are…

When ‘The One That Got Away’ Meets ‘New Guitar Day’

We just wanted to share something really cool that happened on our Facebook page the other day. It all started when we posted this image for Valentine’s Day, featuring an already-hard-to-find Epiphone Limited Edition Slash Rosso Corsa Les Paul Standard with Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Slash signature humbuckers.

Reader’s Choice: Top Amps For Blues

Generally the blues isn’t about flash or effects. It’s more about feeling. It’s characteristically a down-and-dirty affair: the sound of fingers and strings, wire and wood. Did Albert Collins, Lonnie Mack or Stevie Ray Vaughn need MIDI-switching? NO! (Though to be fair SRV did switch between and combine a couple of amps for his signature tones – nothing wrong with that either).

Q&A With Alex Skolnick

Recently we were lucky enough to snag some time with Alex Skolnick (while he took a break in a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf) to talk about Testament, Alex Skolnick Trio, tone, technique, gear and just general life stuff. Alex fielded questions on Facebook from our fans, and here’s an edited transcript of the questions…

Q&A With Gus G of Firewind/Ozzy Osbourne

Between Firewind and Ozzy Osbourne, Gus G’s got this whole guitar thing pretty well stitched up. And he knows his gear too: he has signature equipment from Blackstar, ESP and of course Seymour Duncan, and he’s got the technical knowledge and musical intuition to put it all to good use on albums like Ozzy’s Scream and Firewind’s latest, Few Against Many. We recently caught up with Gus for a chat with our Facebook fans.

Simple Guitar-Related Solutions You Could Be Missing Out On

A few years ago, I was browsing the Seymour Duncan Forum and came across a member who had encountered a problem which had him near his wit’s end. HIS KNOB WAS STUCK! Heh. No, seriously though. He was trying to wire up a new volume pot in his guitar, but he could not get the…
