PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the Longhorn Amplifiers room. In this segment, Joe chats with Longhorn's Terry Wright about their model the Texas Blues. Powered by a pair of KT66 tubes, the Texas Blues head from Longhorn Amps kicks out 50 watts of burly tone. The rear panel provides dual 10-turn pots that allow players to individually bias each output tube. This is especially handy for using non-matched, vintage tube sets. Using the amp's test points, you can quickly re-bias the head for 6L6, 6V6, EL34, KT88, and 5881 power tubes. In addition to a standard input jack, the Texas Blues offers an alternative FET input that adds a clean boost to either the Clean or OD channel.

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.
