Tone guru Scott Henderson runs down his wet/dry rig. For greater depth check out his podcast Guitar Wank’s 200-ish episode.
When I interviewed Scott Henderson for Guitar Player, we had a great conversation that resulted in way too many words for the space allotted. I decided to concentrate on his playing and gear for the GP piece and cut out the parts that dealt with recording specifics. It is great information for any guitarist who wants better studio sound, so I am posting it in Guitar Moderne.
The past year was a banner one for modern guitar.There were many notable records by artists covered in Guitar Moderne and others. Here, in no particular order are some of the highlights.

Raoul made the list last year and this year’s release is equally stellar.
Guitar Moderne is all about the amazing stylistic variety of guitarists practicing their art in the 21rst Century. The zine exists, in large part, to help expose these artists to an audience that might not find them otherwise. In that spirit, here is the Guitar Moderne’s first curated festival of modern guitar. These guitarists offer a wide spectrum of music that employs the instrument in personal and idiosyncratic rather than idiomatic ways. If you like the artists please purchase their recordings and go see them live—Enjoy!
