Issue #32 'Zakk Wylde'

Zakk Wylde scores his second GI cover with a great new interview and some interesting revelations! Knowing how many of us struggle to nail that fiery Zakk Wylde style, we asked Doug Cartwright to pull out all the stops on a special Zakk Wylde Tech Session. You'll find it inside this issue. Have fun!

Love 'em as we do, blistering solos aren't the only things that make for distinctive guitar playing. Gang Of Four's  Andy Gill has proved that in a long career which has seen him influence some of music's biggest names. You can find out why in our special interview and feature.

Meanwhile, we have a fantastic competition with three Orange amps up for grabs, all our regular guitar tuition columns, Live Sound! for when you take your playing (and your vocals!) on stage and Making Tracks for when you're ready to record.  And, as we always remind you, unlike the others,  GI is still entirely free. Spread the word!
