I certainly appreciate all the Japanese guitar magazines that have featured me over the years, but I must admit that I'm pretty excited to read the new issue of Guitar Player Magazine (since it's printed in a language that I can read!) All those Japanese magazine photo sessions did teach me to hold my guitar upright so the headstock doesn't get cut out of the photo. And of course I haven't "abandoned" shred. I just make sure that it's not the only topping on my rock and roll pizza.
