New Columns

This edition's guest columnists are writing about tremolo picking, perfect 5th intervals, CAGED and advanced sounding acoustic chording. We've got four fresh columns altogether - all written by returning columnists.

Tom Hess is back with another speed-oriented article "Tremolo Picking Guitar Method For Unbelievable Speed". Mike Campese has returned with an excellent technique column, "Constructing Lines With The 5th Intervals". Guitarist Tommaso Zillio is back with "Guitarists, Don’t Get CAGED, Part 2". Finally, acoustic guitar specialist Simon Candy returns with "Easy To Play, Advanced Sounding Chords For Acoustic Guitar".
