Howdy, folks! Welcome to JeffRadio, your No. 1 source on the internet for anything related to music! My name is Jeffrey Burnell and I’ll be your host on this little journey.

I’ve been an avid guitar fan for as long as I can remember and the day, I embarked on my six-string journey at the young age of 5 truly defined the course of my entire life.

I work as a professional musician, session guitarist, and guitar teacher, and would like to use this blog as a personal outlet to share my six-string knowledge with the world.

I have always considered myself an open-minded individual and never felt like a stranger to any genre and playing style, hence you can expect an eclectic musical combination on this site. As long as it’s top-notch guitar music, I’m down with it!

Tweaking the instrument, getting new ones, playing with amps, effects, and guitar gizmos is an activity I’ve been enjoying on a daily basis for well over two decades now.

At one point, I just realized that sharing my knowledge with the world will not only make me feel good but spark even more passion for working on my skills and hopefully even teach me a new thing or two.

 Anyhow, on this blog, you can expect to see our guitar reviews, amps, guitar pedals, miscellaneous equipment, music guides, how-to series, guitar guides, and much more.

Throughout the years, I’ve noticed various guitar players making certain critical mistakes and figured that I can’t reach them all and discuss it. Therefore, I will also use this blog to address some frequently asked guitar questions and common misconceptions on the given topic.

For more information, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Hey, rockstar! I’ve already introduced myself, so I’ll try to keep this short. I’ve been a guitar geek for as long as I can remember, and I might just be stuck like this for life!

Growing up listening to Santana, Bob Dylan, Bowie, Cobain, Tom Morello, and too many others to mention, I’ve been spoiled with master class performances that have pushed the boundaries of my favorite instrument to where they are today. By working as a professional musician, session guitarist, and guitar teacher for over a decade, I hope to bring others the joy these legends have brought to my life, even if it’s only a small fraction.

Here at JeffRadio, I hope you learn things that are new, fresh, and exciting on your musical journey and that our site speaks for our love, admiration, and respect for guitars, and all instruments alike.

Guitarist/Editorial Director

Hey there! I’m a rock and metal guitarist from Oklahoma, with a knack for content writing. 

I’ve been playing the guitar since I was 15, and I have my own college band called Black Flower. Content and creative writing have been a passion since my teenage days, having written and edited for local and University magazines. 

When I’m not rocking out on the guitar, you might find me in a laboratory doing some cool science stuff 🙂
