Issue #70 'Jared James Nichols, Kenny Wayne Shepherd'

Hello and welcome to issue 70 of Guitar Interactive Magazine!

Once again it’s been an incredible year for new products in the world of guitar. In this issue’s review section we take a look back at the very best of 2019 with reviews handpicked by expert reviewers Tom Quayle, Sam Bell, Nick Jennison, Phil Short and Gi magazine editor, Jonathan Graham. We hope you enjoy our look back at Guitar Interactive Magazine's best of 2019 and be sure to let us know if you agree with our choices, or if you feel we missed something out.

Of course, that’s not all, as Guitar Interactive Magazine catches up with Wisconsin born blues-rock guitarist and vocalist, Jared James Nichols for the first time since the exciting launch of his signature Epiphone Les Paul Custom, and ahead of his first major UK tour that kicks off in February 2020.

For the last quarter-century, riding shotgun with Kenny Wayne Shepherd has been one heck of a rock ‘n’ roll road-trip. Erupting onto the early-’90s scene with his burn-it-down guitar solos and gut-punch songcraft—the 41-year-old he’s become is even more magnetic, still pushing his Fender Strat where others fear to fret, with an honesty that only comes with age and miles on the clock. Guitar Interactive Magazine sits down with the Louisiana gunslinger following the release of his brand new album ‘The Traveler’ for an exclusive interview and live performance.

As usual, with every issue, we have a whole host of exclusive lessons from Tom Quayle, Nick Jennison, Sam Bell, Giorgio Serci and Shauna Tohill for you to enjoy.


Happy New Year, and all the very best for 2020.
