Posted on Monday, March 2nd, 2009 in Interviews – Comments: (2)I’ve devoted a few good posts on my love of Bluegrass music, most recently in this guest post.

And it rocked!I’d picked up Iron Horse’s Fade to Bluegrass some years ago from the public library and listened to it all the time.

- Chords as Voices
Posted on Wednesday, March 4th, 2009 in lesson – Comments: (2)a guest post by Christopher DavisMost guitarists are familiar with with the C.A.G.E.D. system of chords and scales. Essentially the whole point of the CAGED system is to say, “Hey, you can play stuff in different positions of the guitar.” Which is awesome! But the CAGED system is also useful for figuring out where exactly chords come from.
- Guitar Coolness – Part One
Posted on Thursday, March 5th, 2009 in Miscellaneous Coolness – Comments: (1)a guest post by Dee ShihabI was really thrilled when Emon contacted me to be the first guest blogger on Guitarkadia. I’m very flattered! Do you want to hear the funny part, though? I know absolutely nothing about guitars! What I do know about is, cool guitar themed products, which is what I come bearing. Why limit your love for guitars by only owning a guitar when even the ice in your drink can be molded into one?

- Interview with Luka Bloom
Posted on Sunday, March 8th, 2009 in Interviews – Comments: (0)One of my favorite places to visit at the Twin Towers was the Borders book store. If I’m not mistaken, that was one of the first places in the city to have listening stations where you could listen to complete albums. The magazine section used to be near the entrance, right next to where Krispy Kreme was. And the escalator would take you downstairs to the Warner Brothers store.
