From hearing David Bowie strum a simple acoustic chord pattern while singing the words "let's dance" to transforming the sketch into the superstar singer's biggest hit, NILE RODGERS (in this flashback to Episode 125) relives step by step how he pulled off the feat. He also details meeting a new musician on the session ? a future guitar hero that Bowie's "Let's Dance" album would soon introduce to the world: a young Texan named Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Plus, we introduce Allen to an intriguing new delay pedal from Keeley and Andy Timmons called the Halo. (Does Allen fall in love with it after just a few notes? Does he steal it from us and refuse to give it back? Listen and find out.) And, last but not least, Allen explains why, if you haven?t already, you need to start recording and releasing your own music NOW. Hosted as always by Jude Gold.

Henderson Music Festival and Guitar Competition, which raises scholarship money to help children learn to play instruments and love music.

That?s right ? live jams are back! Sure, during the pandemic, guests on No Guitar Is Safe played a ton of guitar for you and showed you a lot of playing approaches over Zoom, etc., but the latency and other restrictions of internet audio meant there could be no real jamming between guests and me, your humble host. But when I started No Guitar Is Safe back in 2015, live jamming was one of the cornerstones on which the show was built. Now that the world is opening up again, we can do in-person episodes more and more often, and the jams can resume. And what a perfect guest JEFF TAMELIER is to kick off the return of the jams with. Super tasty and soulful, Jeff will teach you to ?turn off your brain and just go for it? as a soloist, and also remind you of ways you can elevate your band?s sound by playing great rhythm guitar. ?

138 - Julian Lage

Whether he's sharing cool improvisation tactics, ways to use "illegal" tempo shifts, ways to heal from playing injuries by using the Alexander Technique, or his thoughts on playing learned riffs and phrases versus purely spontaneous ones, jazz guitar prodigy JULIAN LAGE explores much in this episode. And throughout the interview he's got his beautiful new signature model Collings guitar in his hands, which he uses to demonstrate songs from his new album SQUINT ? which comes out on Blue Note Records June 11 ? as well as the compositional tactics and playing approaches behind them. Hosted by Jude Gold. Presented by Guitar Player magazine.

137 - Misha Mansoor

Focusrite brings you a deep guitar hang with MISHA MANSOOR, who plugs two of his favorite signature-model Jackson guitars, deconstructs some of his great riffs for you, and shares how he created PERIPHERY, one of the most influential prog-metal bands in history. (Some would even say Mansoor is one of the chief architects of the genre known as ?djent? ? we?ll see if the ever-humble guitarist/producer agrees.) Misha also shares everything from his deep Allan Holdsworth influence to how he creates Hendrix-style echo-before-distortion psychedelic feedback loops. Additionally, Mansoor details how he and his other guitar hero friend, Tosin Abasi, like to go hot-doggin? down canyon roads behind the wheels of exotic supercars. Thanks again to FOCUSRITE, makers of great audio interfaces and more, for making this episode happen.

135 - Jamie Kime Bonus Lesson

Grammy-winning rock/fusion guitarist JAMIE KIME has worked with everyone from Zappa Plays Zappa to Dr. John to Jewel, and back on episode 94 of this show ? which was recorded in person, well before the world ever dreamed a pesky virus would put the world in lockdown ? Jamie and I played a ton of guitar and he offered up many great soloing tips. In fact, there was so much musical insight from Jamie in that interview that I couldn't fit it all into one episode. So, as promised, I have now (finally!) created a second Jamie Kime episode for you so you wouldn't miss out. Jamie is a spectacular guitarist, and this extra content ? modal soloing tips, Ted Greene chord chemistry, harp harmonics approaches, and more ? is valuable. There's even a cool Hiram Bullock rabbit hole explored by Jamie and I. This episode is PRESENTED BY GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE. Thank you for listening. ? JUDE GOLD, host.

134 - Jeff Berlin

From Allan Holdsworth (Bonus: This episode features a previously unreleased interview clip with Holdsworth that may save you from ever playing "mayonnaise" chords again) to Steve Howe/Yes to Eddie Van Halen, renowned bassist JEFF BERLIN has played with some truly great guitarists. On this episode, he plugs in and shows you what he loves to play, study, and teach, and write, with demonstrations spanning Bach to Jaco Pastorius to Eric Clapton.
