Introducing the latest episode of Ernie Ball Music Man’s Inspired By series, “Rubik’s Cube” featuring Jason Richardson. Journey through this film as it highlights Jason Richardson’s heavy-metal background and how his first Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty guitar from John Petrucci’s signature collection changed his life. Learn about Jason’s unique creative process as he channels the Majesty guitar and new-age technology to develop his craft. Continuously expanding his talent in the metal rock space, drawing more and more fans with his incredible ability to play exceptionally fast and heavy.

It’s like a puzzle, it’s a challenge, it’s something I’m always striving to do faster and better. I’ve never really thought that in depth about it. I just like playing guitar.. it’s like a Rubik’s cube.

I didn’t realize it at the time when I wanted to get my first Music Man. I just wanted it because it was John’s guitar when I was 12-13 years old. I had no clue that I was investing in buying one of the best guitar models ever made.

  1. After the album has firmly reminded you of Foley’s guitar prowess, “If I Have Forsaken You” arrives to showcase her heart-stabbing’ torch singer vocals amid the swell of horns and those thick B3 tones. One of the many benefits of a bit o’ age and experience is a certain amount of fearlessness, and you can hear it in her swaggering interpretation of Bessie Smith’s 1927 “Send Me to the ‘Lectric Chair” both vocally and in her guitar trade-offs with Derek O’Brien.
