Guitar Player is a popular magazine for guitarists who want to become better, more informed players. It contains articles, interviews, reviews and lessons of an eclectic collection of artists, genres and products. Each issue is fiercely dedicated to stylistic diversity in its coverage of music, artists, and guitar gear.
A typical issue of Guitar Player includes in-depth artist features, extensive lessons, gear and music reviews, letters to the magazine, and various front-of-book articles. Readers have often expressed their appreciation of Guitar Player’s policy of featuring many styles of guitarists, as opposed to other magazines, typically dominated by rock music (much because the guitar per se has become very associated, or almost inherent, to rock).
