Dave Wronski Quoted in Guitar Player

In the May 2006 issue of Guitar Player magazine, there is an article called "99 Ways to Play Better: Tips By Your Favorite Guitar Heroes". This article features little snippets of wisdom, tips, and tricks from the royalty of guitar players. You know, guys like Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Joe Pass, Ritchie Blackmore, Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Eric Johnson, John Lee Hooker, and the list goes on and on. Well, my eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw that our own Dave Wronski, Slacktone guitar wizard and Jon & The Nightriders veteran, was quoted not once, but three times! That's right, 3 out of the 99 tips were from Dave Wronski! More than anyone else, I believe.

Congratulations Dave on getting the recognition you deserve!

Kudos to Guitar Player, who have been on a roll lately for giving nods to surf bands like Pollo Del Mar, Meshugga Beach Party, & Slacktone; not to mention to giving a column to Deke Dickerson!

Brian, You must live next to the GP Distributor-- I just got April issue, which aside from the Meshugga Beach Reiview, features surf in a couple other places- In Mike Varney's Spotlight, a guy named Frank Ferraro is featured. He plays surf instrumental. He lives in Ft. Lauderdale and plays in a band called Cutback. Have any of our Florida Members seen this band? Also, there is a recording feature on East Bay Ray ofn the Dead Kennedys. He mentions that people think he was influenced by surf music, but he denies ever "listening to Dick Dale or any of those guys". But, I have talked to him about surf music and said he was a fan when he was younger... And, fwiw, Derek Trucks favors the same Blackface Super Reverbs that Wronski uses. Ferenc

Geez, I've wondered why the general guitar community doesn't seem aware of what a monster player Dave is. It's about freakin' time. Congrats to Dave!
