Malina Moye’s Top Ten Tips for Guitarists

With her new album, ‘Dirty,’ on the way, the ‘Billboard’ chart-topper shares some hard-won wisdom for fellow players.

Strapped with a Fender Stratocaster or Gibson Flying V, singer-songwriter and lefty axe-slinger Malina Moye has carved out her own funk-infused guitar sound among a new breed of blues-rock artists.

Whether she’s playing alongside fellow luminaries Buddy Guy, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Eric Gales on the Experience Hendrix tour, honoring electric guitar pioneer Chuck Berry at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s tribute concert, or playing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at historic NBA and NFL games, Moye’s jaw-dropping performances have snowballed a loyal following.  

Indeed, 2018’s Bad as I Wanna Be album held the number one spot on the Billboard Blues Chart for two weeks straight while copping rave reviews the world over.
