ISSUE 11: Summer 2017

Fair warning! This double-wide issue of Riff is free for the asking, but the content herein may trigger involuntary spending while disrupting your lazy, dog days of Summer by compelling you to hit the shed for extended periods of time. Forewarned is forearmed — so stop reading now and work on your tan, or dig in and work on your chops.

You can blame Jeff Scheetz, our Director of Education, for pulling you off the beach and driving you to the dark and lonely confines of your practice room. He cherry-picked the 17 top student-ranked lessons, from 17 of TrueFire’s top educators, presented here in this issue’s Lesson Portfolio. Practice rhythm tracks for these lessons are featured in this month’s Riffage. Towel off and grab your guitar!

For those of you who choose to hang on the beach just a little bit longer, we’ve cooked up a special Summer Playlist section that you can dial in and listen to at your leisure while sipping umbrella drinks. We asked 21 TrueFire educators to share what they’re listening to this Summer and we’re pretty sure you’ll be as pleasantly surprised and inspired as we were when we perused their playlists.

OK, here’s the costly rub with this issue of Riff… 20 TrueFire artists and educators give you a rundown on their live gig rigs and tell you why that rig helps them sound so good. You’ll be lucky to get through the Gear Bag section without tapping your rent money to pick up a new pedal or two. In addition, gear-centric articles from Chris Buono, Jeff McErlain and Anthony Stauffer may make matters potentially even more expensive for you. We’ll round out your Summer Riff experience with another StudioWire installment from Tommy Jamin, our head of production. Tommy shares more key learnings and photos from our new studio construction adventure.
