Welcome to our biggest ever issue, with our cover star, Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal, making a welcome return, accompanied by the man who builds his guitars, Patrice Vigier. Check out too, our interviews with Kiss's Tommy Thayer and Alastair Greene, who handles guitar duties in the Alan Parson's band. That's a lot of great guitar talk!
One of the finest living guitarists, Eric Clapton, turned 70 recently and as a tribute, we asked Michael Casswell for a Tech Session based on Clapton's Cream era style. If you've ever wanted to capture that magic - here's your chance!
A very different kind of magic is Bluegrass and we've pulled together features, reviews, a video mandolin lesson from the amazing Andy Wood and the chance to win a Dean banjo in one great supplement. Ever wanted to find out why Bluegrass matters? Here's the place to start!
Add the chance to win a superb Hughes & Kettner all-tube head, a full complement of gear reviews, guitar tuition columns, Live Sound! and Making Tracks and you have an even bigger Guitar Interactive - and it's still entirely free!
