It's not easy to establish yourself in Nashville well before you've turned 30, but guitarist/singer JOE ROBINSON — with a heap of musical talent, a ton of great songs, and a tireless work ethic — seems to have done just that. Today, the Aussie-turned-Tennesseean six-string wunderkind demonstrates many of his amazing riffs, songs, and approaches (including material from his new album, Borders). Joe also introduces you to his signature Maton guitar, teaches you how to Travis pick, and passes on great career lessons he received personally from Tommy Emmanuel and Robben Ford. Presented by GUITAR PLAYER magazine. HOSTED BY JUDE GOLD.
Grammy-winning rock/fusion guitarist JAMIE KIME has worked with everyone from Zappa Plays Zappa to Dr. John to Jewel, and back on episode 94 of this show — which was recorded in person, well before the world ever dreamed a pesky virus would put the world in lockdown — Jamie and I played a ton of guitar and he offered up many great soloing tips. In fact, there was so much musical insight from Jamie in that interview that I couldn't fit it all into one episode. So, as promised, I have now (finally!) created a second Jamie Kime episode for you so you wouldn't miss out. Jamie is a spectacular guitarist, and this extra content — modal soloing tips, Ted Greene chord chemistry, harp harmonics approaches, and more — is valuable. There's even a cool Hiram Bullock rabbit hole explored by Jamie and I. This episode is PRESENTED BY GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE. Thank you for listening. — JUDE GOLD, host.

From Allan Holdsworth (Bonus: This episode features a previously unreleased interview clip with Holdsworth that may save you from ever playing "mayonnaise" chords again) to Steve Howe/Yes to Eddie Van Halen, renowned bassist JEFF BERLIN has played with some truly great guitarists. On this episode, he plugs in and shows you what he loves to play, study, and teach, and write, with demonstrations spanning Bach to Jaco Pastorius to Eric Clapton. And this interview was extra special for me, because I used to tour with Jeff, as I was the guitarist for BX3, the bass extravaganza concert that featured Jeff doing a set along with sets from Stuart Hamm and Billy Sheehan. Presented by Guitar Player magazine. -- JUDE GOLD, host, No Guitar Is Safe

133 - Tracii Guns

2021-02-1701:08:48

He's a founding member of the two biggest rock bands ever to have the word "Guns" in their names. He's an icon of California metal and hard rock. He's got a lethal looking new Kramer signature model guitar in his name. He's TRACII GUNS, and his main band since the early- to mid-'80s, L.A. Guns, is enjoying a resurgence — and also enjoying the return of lead singer Phil Lewis. Plugging in that new Kramer for you and sharing stories of how he built — and how he survived — his wild career, Tracii sits down for an epic interview. Hosted by Jude Gold. Presented by Guitar Player magazine.

From GUNS N’ ROSES to ASIA to SONS OF APOLLO to ART OF ANARCHY to his own BUMBLEFOOT albums, RON 'BUMBLEFOOT' THAL is not only one of the most in-demand rock guitarists of the new millennium, he’s also one of the most innovative, as you will discover when you hear him demonstrating everything from his Vigier double-neck electric (one neck is fretless) to his “portable fret” (a thimble!) to his favorite songs from Boston, Stevie Wonder, Judas Priest, and, of course, CHINESE DEMOCRACY — the epic Guns N’ Roses record that features him on every track. BONUS: You will be deeply moved by Ron’s incredible story of survival, triumph, newfound health after a random motorist in an SUV nearly took everything from him. Big thanks to Mr. Thal for taking the time to do this deep guitar hang with us ... and thanks as well to Guitar Player magazine and guitarplayer.com for making this episode possible. And thank YOU for listening to episode 132 of No Guitar Is Safe, “The Guitar Show Where Guitar Heroes Plug In.” — JUDE GOLD, host and creator

2020-10-2101:08:49

Globally respected for his incredibly funky guitar playing AND for his immense success as a Grammy-winning record producer, NILE RODGERS has been making multi-platinum albums since the late ’70s, when his dance band CHIC ruled radio with hit after hit. (One of Chic’s famous grooves, powered by NILE's guitar and BERNARD EDWARDS’ bass, “Good Times,” even became the basis of what was arguably the first breakthrough rap song, SUGARHILL GANG’s “Rapper’s Delight.) After CHIC's early success, Nile went on to produce DIANA ROSS, INXS, DURAN DURAN, DAVID LEE ROTH, MADONNA, LADY GAGA and other superstar acts. On this episode, NILE details his funk guitar approaches from CHIC to the present, his new jazz/funk instrumental “Inside the Box,” and his hang with dearly departed EDDIE VAN HALEN. He also takes you inside some unforgettable session moments, including studio adventures with DAVID BOWIE, STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, and DAFT PUNK, with whom he scored one of the biggest hit songs of recent years, “Get Lucky.” Hosted by JUDE GOLD, this episode is brought to you by BLUE MICROPHONES.

At age 11, ERIC STECKEL recorded a live album. A year later, a legendary British blues bandleader heard Steckel and was so impressed he took the young guitar hero on a tour of Europe with him. (Which British bandleader? Let’s just say Steckel is now an official, pedigreed Bluesbreaker.) In this episode, Steckel plugs in one of his favorite Knaggs guitars, demonstrates approaches and riffs from his wide catalog of “blues metal” (as he calls it) songs, and discusses his new line of Seymour Duncan signature pickups. Hosted by JUDE GOLD. This episode is presented by BLUE MICROPHONES. The perfect mic awaits you at bluemic.com.

Even though she's just 27, MOLLY TUTTLE has for years now been mesmerizing audiences with her fast-’grass flat-picking runs, great sense of groove, and soulful singing. But, as is the case with many great artists, it’s the way her talents combine in the form of great SONGS that is most astounding. The California-raised, Nashville-based steel-string virtuoso got started in music at age 8, learning from (and soon gigging and recording with) her father, Jack Tuttle. Now, Molly — not one to stagnate during pandemic-induced lockdown or any other time — has recorded and just released her third solo album, called ... BUT I'D RATHER BE WITH YOU. And on this episode of No Guitar Is Safe, Molly picks up one of her favorite Pre-War Guitars dreadnoughts, performs songs for you, and shows you many of the techniques and emotions that went into the new record. PRESENTED BY BLUE MICROPHONES. Find your dream microphone at BLUEMIC.COM. Hosted by JUDE GOLD.
Plugging in his brand new signature-model Fender Kenny Wayne Shepherd Stratocaster, demonstrating all its sounds, and showing us his “secret” Albert King lick, multi-platinum guitar hero KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD comes to us live from the Demon Cave (my nickname for the garage that houses some of his guitar gear AND his Dodge Demon), where he cranks up the smallest of his many Dumble amplifiers for us.
