James LaBrie, Jordan Rudess, Virgil Donati, John Macaluso, Adam Nitti, Matt Guillory, Peter Wichers, Peter Wildoer, Ray Riendeau, Mike Mangini, Bryan Beller and many more. Recently I've had a chance to meet Marco at "Klavitara Zagreb Festival" where we performed together among many other great musicians. We arranged this interview so here it is.
We are privileged to bring you an exclusive interview with John Wheatcroft, one of the most versatile British guitarist, head of guitar at "Tech Music School" in London and regular contributor "Guitar World" (USA), "Guitarist" and "Guitar Techniques" magazines.

He knew a local guitar shop whose owner was happy to lend me a couple of guitars to use on the project. Without any expectation we went to that shop to try some guitars and boy, oh boy... was there a surprise waiting...
Hi everybody. This time we have something cool derived out of the position 2 in A blues scale. We're playing over a blues boogie in A, so this lick would fit perfectly in something like Joe Satriani's "Satch Boogie"
