GT162 (March 2009)Best cover song ever? Whatever your opinion, it can't be denied that Jimi Hendrix came up with an absolutely cracking version of this classic Bob Dylan song. Transcribed and recorded by the really rather brilliant Guthrie Govan, this issue will prove highly popular. Even more so when you consider what else is in it:

Guitarists You Should Know
We, like you, know it's necessary to celebrate guitar icons like Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Slash and many many others. Thing is, where are the new players that should be lauded? More importantly, what are they doing on the guitar that is soooooo outstanding? Look no further as GT's virtuosic multi-stylist (with a rather fine turn on all things Django and rock fusion), John Wheatcroft has scoured youtube and bought up half of Amazon's CD stock to present you with eighteen players that are knocking everyone's socks off!
Whitesnake's outstanding blues rocker has recorded a blues solo just for you!
Insert the CD-ROM into your computer to watch one of the world's most important (read, tasty chops) slide guitarists in action. What control, what tone!
