World Guitars [1/09 – 1/15]

09 Jan

The guitar has been around for more than 5,000 years.  Found nearly everywhere in the world, and this week, the guitar is adaptable to so many styles of music: rock and roll, blues, jazz, Latin rhythms, and the folk.  This week, we’ll highlight guitarists around the globe, from Latin America to Africa, and Australia to Japan and beyond.
