PG's Chris Kies is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he swings by the Friedman Amplification room. In this video segment, we get to check out Friedman's Dirty Shirley and Naked heads. The Dirty Shirley sounds like Jimmy Page on the early Zeppelin records. Watch our video demo and decide just how accurate that statement is. (We have a mountain of editing to do... keep an eye out, that video is coming soon!)The Dirty Shirley is a 6L6-based head with a tube rectifier. Friedman describes the amp as being loosely based on a JTM45 platform, but the amp does have a Gain control and Master Volume, too. In comparison to a lot of Friedman's other popular amps (Naked, Brown Eye), the Dirty Shirley is a little more "classic" and has no switches and no effects loop—just great rockin' tone.

Whether in the studio or on solo gigs, the Nashville session-guitar star holds a lotta cards, with guitars and amps for everything he’s dealt.

Well, the Nashville-based session star, producer, and frontman has played on hundreds of albums and 45 No. 1 country hits, starting with Jason Aldean’s “Hicktown,” since 2005. Plus, he’s found time for several bands of his own as well as the first studio album under his own name, All the Birds Sing, which drops January 28.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
