Ask Zac Episode 30 - Guitar Heroes & Gear

April 17, 2020

Most guitar players make many gear purchases based on what their heroes use. This is fine in itself, but what is more difficult, is to know when their gear is not working for us. And to keep from getting too philosophical, I also dissect some of the licks and parts to  "Quarantine Man Blues" that I play at the top of the show.
