PRESS RELEASE: The latest FREE digital instalment of Guitar Interactive is now available, featuring its usual high dosage of HD video guitar & gear reviews, in-depth interviews, tech sessions, comps and more. For over 40 years Martin Barre handled the electric guitar duties of prog-rock doyens, Jethro Tull. In Gi30 we invited the guitar veteran into our East London based studio to record two exclusive performances and wide ranging interview. As one of the founding forefathers of Thrash metal, Scott Ian has dined at the table of Metal’s Big 4 since the formation of Anthrax in the early eighties. We meet the man with deadliest downstroke in the business.

Our tech session comes courtesy of Guitar Idol 4 winner, Brazil’s Andre Nieri, who filmed two video lessons which cover fingerstyle techniques and how to add chords when improvising.

We’ve got reviews on products by PRS, Ibanez, Schecter, Blackstar & Seymour Duncan, dedicated sections on live sound, recording, acoustic and bass guitars plus columns from Gi favourites Tom Quayle, Michael Caswell, Rick Graham and more.

Not forgetting that in Gi30 we’re also giving away two TC Electronic Alter Ego X4 vintage echo pedals and three Charlie’s pedal boards only to subscribers of Guitar Interactive Magazine.

Issue 30 of Guitar Interactive Magazine is available now.
