Guitar Crush: An Ode to the Ibanez Artist Series

For decades, guitarists all over the world have painstakingly searched for the perfect guitar. For players with the means, these perfect guitars often take the form of Strats, Teles, and Les Pauls from the 50's and 60's. Unfortunately, most of us aren't famous musicians with unlimited funds. Workaday players need a guitar that's versatile, looks great, sounds great, feels great, and doesn't break the bank. That's quite a tall order. Some players search their entire life for a guitar that sits at the perfect intersection of quality, price, tone, and versatility. Luckily, for over 30 years Ibanez has put that very guitar within the reach of players with even the most limited budgets: the Ibanez Artist Series.

It's Recorder Season in Elementary Schools

When it comes to music, everybody's gotta start somewhere. These days, the place where most kids start is in elementary school - with the infamous recorder. Oh, the recorder. The bane of headache-suffering parent. The enemy of peace and quiet. That simple foot-long piece of plastic or wood that, in the wrong hands, produces tones that can only be likened to those of a dying cat (if you're lucky).
