So, who buys guitar magazines? If so, which one/s? Do you find them useful?

I personally ocassionally buy Total Guitar or Guitar Techniques if it seems interesting when I skim read it in the shop. I find theres a lot of junk and adverts in them often though. The gear reviews are always good to read aswel, keep up to date.

The japanese Young Guitar is supposedly very good, unfortunately I don't live in Japan, or read Japanese for that matter!

Is that a guitar shop free one? Yeah Sound Control send me theirs every month, its not bad for free! Although I do find their reviews rather biased, as they are obviously very hesitant to slate one of the products they sell!

I've subscribed to Guitar World, I think it's a cool guitar magazine, although there are sometimes these lousy bands on there and stuff, but mostly the lessons and reviews etc. are interesting. Sometimes I do buy Guitar Techniques or Total Guitar, and that is mostly everytime when I walk past them in a store and notice them biggrin.gif

I used to buy a lot of Guitar Player when I was younger, but to be honest, I don't think I've bought any since this "internet" thing came around...

I also subscribe to Guitar World, and I agree: How do bands like Avenged Sevenfold get on the cover where there are so many talented bands out there? This month's cover was cool though, with Jimmy Page and a great interview with him inside.

Occasionally, if the cover interests me.

I usually buy one if Paul Gilbers on the front as his lessons are extremely usefull. Other than that Im generally not fused. If im reading a magazine I should be practicing ! biggrin.gif besides, GMC give me more than enough to study ! cool.gif

Very cool stuff in magazines, but i think they some of them became just advertising magazines with little real good articles.
