"I have been playing the guitar and embracing everything guitar related for over 20 years! I have been in guitar shops all over the country, I have purchased “gear” through eBay, The Gear Page, chain stores, independent single location guitar shops, and the manufacturers themselves. I think that past, present, and future experience puts me in with the majority of your loyal Guitar Jam Daily membership. And we need to keep current with what’s happen in guitar, and Guitar Jam Daily allows us to do that!

As a practicing guitarist (which means I spend more time practicing guitar than actually playing music!), I thoroughly enjoy my morning, and sometimes afternoon, adventures to the Guitar Jam Daily site! I view the news, check out the lessons, and intently read the gear reviews. So, I guess I want to thank you for giving me my daily dose of guitar info, and also I want to congratulate you on the site’s success to date, and wish you continued success as you and Guitar Jam Daily move forward! Great job and I look forward to innumerable visits to the site!
