Guitar Facebook Pages

I no longer update the articles on this page, except for the Guide to Luthiers and Guitar Techs in the Philippines page. I decided to write smaller articles on Facebook, which you can easily share to your friends with a simple click of the Like or Share button. It is also easier to interact with readers on FB. Check out the Guitar Buying,Owning, and Selling Guide on Facebook.  

I also wrote an ebook entitled GuitarImprovisation Class for Beginners. For inquiries you may drop a message at Guitar Lessons In Lucena City. You may also check the FAQ here.
Some of you may not be aware that I also manage Tom's Guitars Manila on Facebook. Tom is a guitar collector who also sells some of his guitars. Those who need emergency cash may also pawn their guitars to Tom. He will not charge interest if you redeem your guitar within two months. It is his way of helping other guitarists. You may check the FAQ here.
Thank you for your support!

RIP Jim Ayson of Philmusic

I just learned that Jim Ayson, the founder of Philmusic, died last night. He is a great loss not only to the local music scene, but to Philippine Internet as well. He was one of the pioneers of local Internet and was very active until his death. 

RIP Jim Ayson. Thank you for your contributions to Philippine musicians.

Review: Forte Notation Software

I received an invitation to review the Forte Notation Software a few weeks ago. My initial reaction was to decline. I play the piano by ear. I cannot sight-read music nor can I write one. I can get the notes of my guitar licks, but finding the notes will not be fast. If I can write the music in my head using Forte then it must be good. I agreed to do the review after watching a short demo.
