New Blog Post: 30 Years ago in Guitar Player Magazine

Postby eichaan » Mon Mar 06, 2017 5:06 am

Hi! I've started a new series on my blog where I re-read the issue of Guitar Player magazine from exactly 30 years ago and talk about it. I hope you find it interesting:

I think it is awesome. I like what you have done here. I took and purchased recently my first issue of Guitar for the practicing musician sept. 1987 off of ebay. A Hendrix issue. I really enjoyed looking at it again. It brought back a ton of memories and reminded me of when I was a freshman in high school. Thanks for sharing and I think it is a fun idea!!

This really is a fun idea! I applaud your effort, and I think it's awesome that you are putting that collection of past magazine issues to use. (30 years ago in Guitar Player is a lot more interesting than my 30+ year collection of Consumer Reports!)

Thanks Coda! Next one to come is May. It was around that time that I got my first Carvin catalog, BTW. I didn't see a Carvin in person until I went to college in 1988 (and it became the basis of a great friendship, but that story will have to wait!)

Nice work! I started playing in 86 and have a lot of fond memories of the guitar mags from this era. Keep em coming
