Thank You, Patrons

In 2020, Acoustic Guitar magazine celebrated its 30th year in print and 25th online. Over two and a half decades, AcousticGuitar.com has given students and musicians an amazing, ever-growing catalog of thousands of lessons, songs to play, artist profiles, gear reviews and demos, news, and much more.

We plan to keep publishing original stories and videos here for many years to come. And that’s where you come in … In January 2020, we launched our patron program (and hope you’ll consider joining).

AcousticGuitar.com patrons are true guitar heroes. They contribute to the site each month to ensure our editors have the resources they need to create the how-to videos, demos, songs, lessons, profiles, news, and more you find (for free) on this site. We list their names here in thanks for their support!
