Last month we did a Spotlight on Imagho A/K/A JL Prades , where he briefly discussed his gear. Here he goes into depth, including how he uses his four loopers. Be sure to check out the linked videos for examples—and for his amazing music.
The joy of publishing Guitar Moderne has always been the discovery of new guitarists with evocative tone, fresh ideas, and inspiring new sounds. When I started, I had to find them by spending hours mining YouTube. Now the magazine has grown to where they find me. The French guitarist Imagho A/K/A JL Prades contacted me, looking for feedback on his music. From the first tune on his Bandcamp compilation I was hooked. His mood drenched, layered guitars conjured a Bill Frisell influenced more by the French romantic composers than American roots.
