Issue #41 'Warren Haynes'

Leading the parade is one of America's finest guitarists, Warren Haynes. Warren's long career has seen him collaborate with so many top musicians, most recently with his fine band Gov't Mule. We also catch up with the master Blues guitarist Walter Trout whose inspiring personal story and Blues mastery deserves every guitarist's attention!

Underpinning both of our interviews is the Blues and if that's the style you want to master, make sure you don't miss Michael Casswell's Blues workout in this issue - it's guaranteed inspiration! All this, plus our usual blend of reviews, columns and this issue's chance to win seven of Seymour Duncan's fantastic FX pedals - one lucky reader is going to have a lot of fun with them this summer!
