"The Truth Behind the Supposed Decline of the Guitar": She Shreds Magazine / Bully / Trade Up Music
7 days ago
Last year, outlets like the Washington Post lamented the decline of the electric guitar and the supposed absence of American guitar heroes. In September of 2017, She Shreds Magazine published an article called "We Are The 50%: The Truth Behind the Supposed Decline of the Guitar," pushing back against this narrative. On this episode, we talk with the author of the piece, Natlie Baker, She Shreds Magazine editor-in-chief Fabi Reyna, Alicia Bognanno (Bully), and Trade Up Music manager Alexa Marmon about what's really going on in the guitar industry.

This show is super informative & polished! I'm not a musician but Portia and guests shed light on the industry in a way that is accessible to all. Plus there are great interviews with some of my favorite indie bands.
