Chris Shiflett on His First "Real" Guitar

Check out this clip from the latest episode where Chris Shiflett discusses his first electric guitar, a fateful acquisition he made in high school, and an incredibly thoughtful gift from Pat Smear.

In the latest episode of Shred with Shifty, we shine a light on a few incredible listeners who tackled the "Limelight" solo and one especially tuned-in player who hit one of Shifty's solos. We also air unreleased footage from Alex Lifeson, Nile Rodgers, Rivers Cuomo, and Lindsay Ell.
