Guitar Payer Magazine Holiday 2023 JOHN FRUSCIANTE Red Hot Chili Peppers COVER

This packed issue begins with the all-time best John Frusciante interview we’ve ever read. As the Red Hot Chili Peppers drop their second album of 2022, ‘Return of the Dream Canteen,’ John sits down with us to discuss the guiding philosophies that have shaped him as a guitarist and continue to drive his pursuit of excellence. He also provides a step-by-step guide to his daily guitar workout regimen, a rigorous and thorough set of drills that cover all aspects of technique.

Finally, we get up-close with the seven guitars behind the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ hits, including John’s 1955 and 1962 Fender Stratocasters, 1960s Fender Telecaster Custom, 1958 Gretsch White Falcon and 1940s Martin 00-15. Shot by Eleanor Jane, who brought us the amazing photos of Jack White’s gear in our July 2022 issue, these images deliver great insights into John’s collection.

Also in this issue, celebrated indie-rock guitarist Madison Cunningham sits down for an in-depth discussion about her career and brilliantly emotive guitar work as she releases her highly anticipated new album, ‘Revealer.’ Acoustic guitar legend Rory Block discusses the making of ‘Ain’t Nobody Worried,’ her new album that features acoustic covers of Bonnie Raitt, Tracy Chapman, Elizabeth Cotten and many others. Billy Duffy talks about the Cult’s new album, ‘Under the Midnight Sun,’ and Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo picks up his guitar for his debut solo album, featuring a star-studded cast of supporting players
