making music mag nov/dec 2008

The folks at Making Music Magazine hit me up on Twitter and offered  a free one-year subscription to their magazine. You know why? Because I wasn’t ashamed to promote my love for the guitar and this baby blog to them. Lesson: promote your work, your product, your zeal. Like-minded folks appreciate that. Notice the title on the cover shot “How to Play Happier…”? When was the last time you saw an article with that title? Mm hmm.

About the bi-monthly mag:

Making Music encourages adult amateur and recreational musicians to pursue their fulfilling hobby and become part of a music making community. By advocating the physical, social, and psychological benefits of recreational music making, we intend to build demand for musical instruments and accessories.

Best part is…they were happy to extend the same offer to Guitarkadia readers. Pretty, pretty cool.

It is difficult for me to decide what my ‘main instrument’ is and for the purposes of this discussion I’ll say my 1960 Gibson Les Paul SG.

Mayhaps I’ll win…

Wow, this is incredible! I had no idea there was a magazine like this! Maybe adding a subscription to Making Music is in order.

Conn 88H Tenor Trombone. Go wanting to be a Band teacher!

I got an old Takamine acoustic I found in my father-in-laws garage attic. It had a broken neck that was repaired for $25. It’s more fun than I can tell you about. I like your site.

Guitar: ESP LTD-100QMNT

I love the ESP and Schecter body style. Rosewood neck, light strat body but with maple top and dark cherry finish.
