Live4guitar's first live event, truly a night to remember! The event happened at a stylish London venue in the best possible style: some face to face chat, a bit of live music, a few drinks... and of course, the announcement of the new website.
Contrary to a convention that one should be fashionably late, everyone was unfashionably early. The atmosphere was incredibly calm and laid back (as if a large family had got together!) although most people hadn't met each another before. It was so good to put names to all those faces. There was quite a high calibre of skill and talent in the room, but what struck me was that there was no “sizing up”, grouping or pretence of any kind.

Shamray guitars

Shamray guitars
Behind the Iron curtain, it was always hard to rock hard. Finding a good instrument was a kind of adventure and adding a certain amount of intrigue every time a local musician would show up with a genuine Fender or Gibson and one could always tell he was “well connected". Bulgarian, Eastern Germany and Check guitars were considered imported instruments and although they were visually good replicas of their western twins, they were far cry from a good quality instruments. In 1988 when a local Moscow luthier started to sell his guitars under the name of Russtone, things began to change.
To practise or not to practise... that is the question
How many times have you asked yourself this Shakespearian question? We are not always in the mood for practising.

This is what happens... we set aside time for practising, but we just don’t feel like it. I think you are all familiar with the situation.
Let’s wind the clock back and remember the time when you were learning first cords, first licks, first scales... How did you feel then? Was there a burning desire to improve? To discover this illusive “something”, “The Guitarists’ El Dorado”? Or was practising just another chore that had to be completed in order to fulfil the task?

24th of July, a hot sunny day in London, LIVE4GUITAR forgot about everything else and headed to Victoria Park, in Mile End, to attend High Voltage Festival.

While My Amp Gently Weeps - All you want to know about guitar amplifiers (Part 1) - Introduction
Most of us remember the first time we heard the sound of an electric guitar. I don’t know about you, but that delightful sound made me dance ever since I was a child. Being a musician, electronics technician, repairman and finally a guitar amp builder, I have always been fascinated with specific details in relation to guitar music, the contribution this type of a sound makes to music and its important role in music in general.
