Why I Love My Acoustic Guitar

Why I Love My Acoustic Guitar

Posted on .

There is a comfortable simplicity to the acoustic guitar that frees it from many of the constraints of any specific music genre or cultural era. It is a great beginner’s instrument, and a strong tool for professional musicians. A new acoustic guitar is an exciting investment, and an old, well-used one is a treasure. From campfires to studios, bluegrass to rock, and basements to arenas - acoustic guitars are right at home.

Band of the Month -- The Active Set

Band of the Month -- The Active Set

Posted on .

The Active Set was born out of the excitement of late '70s/early '80s post punk and new wave, unified with '90s alternative and viewed through the referential lens of the '00s. Drawing from this wide range of influences, lead vocalist/bassist Matthew Stolarz and guitarists Johnty Thompson and Francis Ramsden crafted a sound that is both energetic and intelligent. They love love quirky, driven melodies with smart hooks. Then they like to change their minds, and change it up. Welcome to Los Angeles, a place for movers and shakers. It's a place to really get things started. If you don't live here yet, you will.
