Guitar Magazine Subscriptions
The beauty of a magazine subscription for special interests such as guitar playing is the breadth of knowledge you get from it. It is quite normal to spend your time as a player learning and playing a limited range of styles and techniques that you already know and like. With a magazine subscription each month you are exposed to a wide range of artists, techniques, songs to learn, that you probably never would have considered before, and this ultimately makes you a much more accomplished player.
While a guitar player might buy the odd magazine if something catches their eye in it, you can probably bet that the majority of players won't already have a subscription, so it's a great gift idea that they probably won't already have.
There are a range of magazines out there targeting different styles, here are some great options including general titles, acoustic and bass guitar magazines.
