    We are a new quarterly magazine dedicated to bringing engaging content in a simple and modern format. The first issue will be released in March 2012 and will work on the iPad and Kindle Fire-- and any multimedia capable tablet.

    I think we have some pretty cool stories and interviews lined up. Our first issue, for instance, will feature an article by Tim Brookes (author of Guitar: An American Life, contributor to NPR‘s Morning Edition). We also have features on Irish singer/ songwriter Eleanor McEvoy, Satellite Amps, Sadowsky Guitars, and video lesson from Eric Skye, and more.

    In subsequent issues, we will be featuring Santa Cruz Guitars, Orange Amps, Kauer Guitars, Jim Soloway, continuing lessons from Eric, artist interviews, and more.

    Here is a link to a complete breakdown of the first issue. Check us out.

    We are always looking for writers. Let me know if you are interested in contributing. For more information just pm or email me.

    I'm looking forward to checking this out, Matt. I knew the Six String Bliss guys were involved, but I didn't know you were co-publishing the magazine.

    Thanks, Josh-- Much appreciated. We are very excited. The first issue has come along exceedingly well. And, all of the people we interacted with have been very supportive. The hardest part is editing the features and articles. We aren't limited by space, so the temptation is to keep everything in there rather than properly editing down to the best piece. Definitely a learning curve.

    Thanks. Even with no iPad or Kindle, you will be able to read it on your computer.

    Thanks, Adam. Pipes had a blast visiting you for the article. I am a bit envious of him.

    After years of resisting...and insisting that newspapers were meant to be read on...well, newspaper, I bought an Ipad for x-mas (for work reasons). Now I'm a digital convert!

    In any case, I look forward to the first issue! Good luck!

    Thank you very much.

    Be careful what you offer. I may take you up on it. ;)

    We are doing a very fun project with you. We are getting a Kauer built and will document the process, as well as the crazy man building it over our second, third, and fourth issues. And, at the end, we get a new guitar. :rockin
