Welcome to issue 52! Yngwie’s unmistakable presence can be felt all over this edition as he is not only the subject of our cover feature, but we also have an incredible tech session on YJM from Nick Jennison - plus we take a closer look at his signature rig.
As if chatting with Yngwie is not enough, we actually have another 11 interviews in this issue for you to check out (that's got to be a record). We had the pleasure of sitting down with Ivar Bjørnson from Enslaved and Bring me the Horizon's Lee Malia, as well as from this year's Ramblin’ Man Fair; Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Gales, Jared James Nichols, Damon Johnson and many more. Gi has been taking in the sights and sounds of many of the UK's best music festivals so look out for more like this in the coming months.
As you know, we always strive to include the finest educational content from the world’s most talented players in every magazine. So with that in mind, it gives me the greatest pleasure to announce that Andy Timmons has brought his GuitarXperience to this issue for an exclusive look at his instrumental classic, "Electric Gypsy." Check out Andy’s plus all our other fantastic columns from Tom Quayle, Joe Pesce, Giorgio Serci and Lewis Turner that should keep you busy until 53.
Of course, there’s more of the latest and greatest gear reviews from around the world of guitar, and once again we are expanding our already stellar review team with Lee Wrathe and Stuart Shields adding their unique insight, expertise and talent to the magazine. I really hope you enjoy what they have to offer.
