Issue #58 'Synyster Gates'

A7X, BFMV, Download 2018 and even more!

Modern-day guitar heroes appear to be few and far between; however, no one is arguably more suited to that role than this issue’s cover artist; Synyster Gates of Avenged Sevenfold. I sat down with Syn just before A7X’s headlining performance at this year’s Download Festival to discuss his unique approach to guitar soloing, the band's plans for 2018 and his online guitar tuition domain: The Synyster Gates School.

We also catch up with Matt Tuck and Michael Paget of Welsh quartet, Bullet for My Valentine ahead of the release of their new album 'Gravity' to discuss the writing and recording of the record, plus we take a look at the pair's current live rig.

If that’s not enough, the Guitar Interactive team were once again on site (as well as the 100,000 fans in attendance) to capture all the action and backstage interviews from across the weekend's spectacular live event.

As with every issue, we have a whole host of the latest and best gear reviews from around the world of guitar, as well as a fantastic Tech Session from Nick Jennison on one of the most vital and exciting rock bands in the world right now, Rival Sons.

Don’t forget all of our other exclusive lessons from Tom Quayle, Chris Buck, Nick Jennison, Giorgio Serci, and Dan Le Gresley. Until issue 59, enjoy the rest of the summer.
