Issue Cover

Guitarist  |  August 2015  

Your private acoustic lesson with a songwriting legend. It’s rare for an artist to define an entire genre, but when it comes to guitarist-singer-songwriters one man stands apart. This quiet, self-effacing minstrel from Boston, Massachusetts came to prominence when the 60s were all but done. The joyous pop of the decade had given way to self-indulgent blues-rock, deafening stacks of amps and 15-minute guitar solos. Even Dylan had gone electric. The time, it seemed, was ripe for a subtler, more introspective style.

While Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Judy Collins, Carole King and a host of others were plying their trade in the coffee shops of New York and Los Angeles, it was Joni Mitchell and the tall, quietly spoken intellectual James Taylor that defined their respective genders’ role in this new singer-songwriter movement.

Whether you’re just starting out with your first guitar or you’ve been hamming the strings for years, no matter what your level, Guitarist Magazine is the perfect accompaniment to help improve your technique and develop your playing style. Each issue brings you expert tutorials from some of the world’s best players to help you perfect your technique and develop your talents.

Guitarist Magazine is jam-packed full of in-depth product reviews covering all the latest amps, effects, accessories and of course, the best new guitars to help you in your buying decisions and develop the perfect sound you’re looking for.

Each issue has exclusive features and interviews with some of the most renowned guitarists from around the world - from B.B. King to Jimi Hendrix to David Gilmour, Guitarist has featured them all!
