OK. I’m as geeky as the next guitar nerd and, like you all, I love looking at videos of guitarists’ rigs. I love seeing their seventy stage guitars and their two full height racks full of esoteric effects with flashing LEDs and their wall of stacks and that special plectrum they use that’s made from a shark’s tooth. I love that crap.
Still though, I can’t help feeling that this look at Buddy Guy’s rig is a breath of fresh air. Deep down, I’m a traditionalist and, no matter how much …
New track from Radiohead’s upcoming appearance on From The Basement.
I went off Radiohead for a while. What to you think of this one though—good ‘Head or bad ‘Head?
Frenzied, manic, vigour. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis can teach the youngsters a few things about cramming massive helpings of angst and lust into a song and about filling a live set with sweat-drenched energy.
From the opening Mickey Mouse and the Goodbye Man, Cave alternated between leaping around the stage of Dublin’s Vicar Street and prowling it like some predatory lounge lizard. He is the Grinderman—all unbuttoned shirt and thrusting crotch, he looms over the front row, bending down, holding their hands, their heads, pulling them to him. Cave gives …
Joe Bonamassa is a man close to my heart. Not only is he an incredibly talented guitarist; not only is he working tirelessly to deliver some great blues and rock; not only is he a total guitar-geek but he was also the guy I presented with the first of my Haze BC-1 model guitars (yes, I do have to work it in to every conversation). Top it all off with the fact that he’s a genuinely nice guy and you’ve got the total package.
And, speaking of total packages, Joe has …
John Paul Jones, as many of you may know played bass and keyboards for Led Zeppelin. This is all that many people know of him and that’s a shame.
So, for this featured video, we’ll take a look (a listen, really) at a something Jonesy has done in the more recent past. Although a bit of a multi-instrumentalist, JPJ does have a thing for the bass. This post, therefore, is a bit of a homage to our low-down bass-bretheren.
In 1999, Jones released the album, Zooma. This was an instrumental album. While …

Here’s one for all you crazy youngsters with your YouTubes and your internets and whatnot.
Epiphone are offering the chance to win one of their, rather nice, Masterbuilt acoustic guitars. They’re all-solid, well put together and very, very handsome.
To be in with a chance to win, you need to video yourself playing something on an Epiphone acoustic, upload it to somewhere on the net and submit the link to Epiphone. They’ll scrutinise them and carefully adjudicate (i.e. laugh at them) and the best one will be published on Epiphone’s own site …
A few days ago, January 23rd, would have been the 100th birthday of Django Reinhardt.
Reinhardt is still one of the most renowned jazz guitarists ever to have lived. That he was a peerless musician is certain. And, as most people know, what makes this even more astonishing is that, at the age of 18, he was injured in a fire in his caravan (he was a gypsy) and was very badly burned. Along with other injuries, Django lost most of the use of the third and forth …
We know this isn’t exactly breaking news but we’ve just found these sound samples of the Epiphone Wilshire and figured it would make a reasonable excuse to take a look at this guitar.
Not that we really need any excuse to consider a Wilshire here at Guitarless. We frickin’ love the Wilshire.
Released a couple of months back, Epiphone’s new Wilshire is a reproduction of the original ’66 model. All mahogany body and neck and a traditional set-neck joint – meeting at the 22nd fret and allowing excellent access to the dusty …
Featured video time. This week(ish) is Jimi Hendrix who is, lets face it, the guitarist who needs very little introduction.
Something just a little different though. This is an acoustic rendition of Hear My Train A Comin’ on a 12-string guitar. I think this video is from the film, See My Music Talking.
A similar, acoustic 12-string version can be heard on the Blues album, which is a compilation released in 1994. It contains versions of Hendrix playing, as you might expect, blues songs – originals and covers. Despite the cynical nature …
We talked about the Marshall Class 5 amp on it’s release a while back and it’s safe to say we were looking forward to hearing how it sounded.
The Class 5 is a low-powered 5-watt amp in the style of the Bluesbreaker combos (albeit smaller). ECC83s in the preamp and an EL84 handling power promised Marshall valve crunch.
Now you can hear how it sounds.
Joe Bonamassa demos the Class 5, both in a band context and by showing how it sounds at different settings.
So, what do you think? Does it do it …
