Ah, yes, the May ’22 issue! There’s so much to tell you about; where should I start?

Well, first all, we’ve got Joe Bonamassa showing you how to come up with creative and useful blues turnarounds. A few pages later, Kirk Fletcher helps you explore the Chicago blues styles of the late, great Buddy Guy, Junior Wells and Magic Sam.

We’ve also got the exclusive first look at Line 6’s brand-new DL4 MkII delay – the followup to the beloved Line 6 DL4, which was produced continuously for 23 years (until just recently). During that time, it truly earned its status as a classic of the digital modeling era.

For some reason, a lot of respected manufacturers are celebrating major anniversaries in 2022 (as you’ll see in upcoming issues). In this issue, we celebrate 30 years of Eastman Guitars. Find out how they’ve successfully brought handcrafted stringed instruments to the masses.

We’ve also got an ode to Eddie Phillips of the Creation – the guitarist who, not so famously, used a bow on his Gibson long before Jimmy Page did it.
