Guitar Techniques gives you a really wide variety of styles to learn. So if you're into metal, country, jazz, folk, or whatever, I've seen it covered. They have regular workshops on beginner tips and advanced soloing techniques. Nothing escapes these guys. They also cover different artists all the time. So if you want to learn the latest song by The Darkness, or Jeff Beck, or Hendrix, or whatever the latest metal band on the scene is playing, then it will eventually turn up here.
It's common for them to delve deeply into a particular person's playing style as well. In that case, you'll get a whole chapter of the mag on, say, "Diamond" Darryl and how he gets his sound, followed with examples of how he plays and in which songs he employs special techniques or scales.
The sheet music itself is comprehensive and easy to follow. Not only that, but this mag comes with a CD each month so that you can pick up things by ear. They also include 'Jam Tracks' that allow you to play along with tabbed songs adding in your own guitar lines.
Plus, of course, the have all the regular magazine stuff: letters to the editor, equipment reviews, album reviews, artist news, and so on. But the bulk of the magazine is taken up with things you can get your fingers into right away. Read more ›
The accompanying CD gives multiple examples for each piece or exercise, usually with tracks played at different speeds and/or and example track and a backing track to play with.
The only downside to this magazine is that you hardly have time to work on eveything you wanted to before the next issue comes out.
My only complaints are that the magazine is a bit pricy - though worth every penny - and that I don't have the whole set. It would take a small fortune to buy every back-issue now.
I've been playing since the early '60s and this is hands down the best guitar mag I've seen if you're willing to do the work required to truly understand and use what it presents.
There are many out there,but this one is worth every penny.
