GUITAR PLAYER – November 2020: The Rolling Stones Peter Green Fleetwood Mac

Bigger, Louder, Deadlier — In 1969, the Rolling Stones changed the face of guitar rock when they launched the first rock and roll tour for the modern age. For the first time, a rock band toured with a full stage set, a professional light show and a sound system loud enough to fill arenas and stadiums. We go behind the scenes to reveal how it all came together and resulted in the groundbreaking live album, ‘Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out!,’ now celebrating its 50th anniversary. Plus, we dig into all of Keith Richards’ and Mick Taylor’s tour gear, including the 1958 and 1959 Les Paul Standards they played. Next up, we present an unpublished 2003 interview with Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green, who talks about his early days with guitar, time with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, and why he regrets ever playing a Les Paul. To make the package sweeter, we’re including an article on how Eric Clapton passed the Bluesbreakers guitar torch to Peter, complete with insights from Clapton, Mayall and producer Mike Vernon. Next up, we talk with Stephen Malkmus and Molly Tuttle about their new albums, Steve Morse takes us through the five songs that shaped his long-running career, and Brian Setzer tells how he wrote the Stray Cats’ debut hit single, “Runaway Boys.” In lessons, we present a complete guide to playing in Johnny Marr’s lead-rhythm style, along with part 1 of our lesson in jazz-style chord soloing. All this, plus the latest gear, including Fender Lead Series II and III; Charvel Pro-Mod DK-22 SSS 2PT CM; Ernie Ball Music Man Steve Lukather LIII HH; Mesa Engineering Cleo, Dynaplex and Gold Mine pedals; and Fender Fullerton Jazzmaster Uke.
