Suggestion to guitar magazines: make sure the links in your stories work.

    This happens all the time: a link to the online version of a lesson is dead. Had it happen with Premier Guitar a while ago and again just now with a simple Scott Henderson lesson in Guitar World. "Page not found." So I search the site for "Henderson" and nothing comes up. I understand that guitarists and writers are often Type B personalities -- I'm both a guitarist (bad) and a writer (a little better) and way Type B -- so these magazines need to employ some Type A's to make sure their web lessons work right. It looks sloppy and it's frustrating when they don't.

    I always read in the magazine to listen to the enclosed CD, yet there is never an enclosed CD. WTF?

    With Guitar World you can pay an extra buck an issue and get a CD included. They should make this clearer -- and promote it better. If it's worth it to you, call them and upgrade your subscription.
