Alice Cooper’s touring guitarist and one of the most talented guitarists of the era, Nita Strauss, was the latest interview guest of The Sessions Panel this week and talked about how she was spending her days during the self-quarantine and the coronavirus pandemic.
As you might remember, Nita has not released any new album since the release of the ‘Controlled Chaos’ which featured eleven never-released-before tracks and it was the debut album of Nita. According to the iconic guitarist, she’s writing the lyrics of the upcoming album of her and she plans to release it as soon as possible.
In her latest interview with The Sessions Panel, Nita has stated that the coronavirus outbreak was like a gift of time for her and there were so many things that she wanted to do that she was just getting so overwhelmed with that people now have the time to do.
Here is what Nita said:
“Honestly, I can say without hesitation this has been the busiest year of my life. It really has. Because every artist has been forced to adapt; you adapt or you die. Not literally, but you must adapt, you must pivot in the 2020-2021 era. So I released my online guitar course. I put together three modules that take someone from picking up the guitar for the very first time all the way through all the techniques that I know, basically. And it’s called ‘Rock Guitar Fundamentals’. And the website is the best URL ever — it’s IWantToPlayGuitar.com, which I love.
I started a Patreon page, so that’s where I do weekly live streams with them. I taught my way through almost a full Alice Cooper set and a bunch of different techniques, sort of, workshops and everything like that. I’ve been writing my second solo album, which I’m very excited about. We built this pretty studio that you see behind me. It’s barely just getting finished up, so we actually built this from the ground up, which was a huge learning experience.”
I didn’t know how many walls you need to soundproof a room, especially when you have someone like Josh hitting the drums in here. So it’s been a whirlwind of a year, but it definitely has also been a gift of time. So many things that I wanted to do that I was just getting so overwhelmed with that we now have the time to do.”
