In this issue of Guitar Magazine : Sadly, everyone reading this will have been affected by the COVID-19 crisis in one way or another. The unprecedented and rapidly evolving nature of the situation probably makes the search for that perfect transparent overdrive pedal seem rather less pressing than it did a few weeks ago, but we will get through this eventually – and music should never be underestimated as a force for good and source of comfort.

Stuck indoors? Now is an opportune time to master the tricky guitar part or classic song you’ve always wanted to learn. With most musicians currently unable to perform in public, we can help them replace lost income streams by buying their records and merchandise, and even paying for guitar lessons over Skype.

Similarly, while many guitar shops have closed their doors to customers visiting in person, you can still support your favourite businesses by ordering online. It’s also never been easier to collaborate with other musicians remotely.

Drop us a line at and let us know what content we can create to help you through the challenging weeks ahead – and don’t forget about the wealth of great tuition and hours of video footage you can find on

Wishing you all the best from myself and the team – see you next month.
