I have had a subscription to the guitar mags that have tab since the late '80's when I discovered how to read it and it has helped me as a guitar player in so many ways. It was the reason I found this site! Anyhow, I was at guitar world's forum the other day, which I rarely visit anymore because it's a bunch of 14 year old folks and this old fogey just doesn't fit in, plus it's silly arguments and not very relevant at all. I'm looking at the request page for them to tab and the list reads like this:

Carcass
Tool
Hatebreed
All that remains
megadeth -symphony of destruction
sacrament
Shadows Fall - redemption
Scorpions -Lovedrive
Grateful dead - Easy Wind
Grateful Dead - Franklin's Tower
Mastadon - cut you up w/a linoleum knife
Judas Priest - Victim of changes

Etc. I thought it was pretty funny to see the boys sandwiched in with such odd company. Gives me some hope for the future.

Heard GuitarPlayer has vids in Jerrys style.Have you checked them out?Its always the same w/ the mags-Truckin' or Friend of the Devil.Not too often do they get into any meat and potatoes.Last year GP did some cool Jerry stuff like Slipknot.Heard there were vids.The kids dont like melody anymore.Its all about being heavy and screaming.Or dance moves.Mostly.

yea these magazines kill me always werid ass heavy metal bands and beating off over shred players, every issue seems to be about the same also, ocassionally you find a good acoustic or jazz related article but not too often

There's some cross-over there. I dig Jerry's version of'Cut you up w/a/linoleum knife'!

guitar player is the best guitar mag ive found. one of the staffers is jude gold, who loves jerry and constantly puts a good word for him in the mag. he also played in the post jerry jgb with merl (even though it was pretty bland)

guitar world is the worst. they had an article with trivia for all the genres of music, which, according to them includes

classic rock
metal
underground/extreme metal
shred
blues
punk
alternative
80's rock

what the hell?
they have 4 different genres for metal, yet no jazz or bluegrass/country or anything.
