Correction for “Africa,” as arranged by Andy McKee

We’ve discovered an unfortunate error in our transcription of Andy McKee’s fingerstyle arrangement of “Africa” in the November 2009 issue of Acoustic Guitar. The tuning key listed is slightly (but significantly!) off the mark—the tuning that we printed was D G D G B D, but should have been D G D G A D. The notes and tab numbers are correct, as is the second-fret capo. We’re deeply sorry about any confusion this may have caused.McKee recently uploaded several new high-definition videos to…See More

In Bb 2.0

“An acoustic guitar, a clarinet, and a glass marimba” sounds a little like the setup for a joke about musicians walking into a bar. But on In Bb 2.0, the Web project from producer and songwriter Darren Solomon, it’s just one possible combination of instruments that can be played individually or all at once, simultaneously or staggered, and mixed according to each listener’s… Continue

Plastic Instruments, Classic Tunes

In the last few years, some remarkable bridges have been built between making music and playing video games—not the least of which can be found in games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero. If you haven’t played one of these titles yourself, the temptation can be strong to cry heretic—after all, pressing buttons on an ostensibly guitar-like piece of plastic is definitely a long way from the sophisticated art of creating music on six strings. I certainly didn’t think much of the idea… Continue

Well it was 20 years ago today...

Last week, members of the Acoustic Guitar editorial team took some time out to talk about the magazine’s rapidly approaching 20th anniversary. We focused our attention on a stack of magazines from the first ten years of Acoustic Guitar—some of which, I have to admit, I’d never even seen before.



With a fresh issue in hand every month, it’s easy to miss how far this magazine has come in 20 years. The lessons in particular—which featured handwritten music for the… Continue

Hi Dan,
I'm glad to find another theory junkie on the site. I particularly enjoy your article on triads. I teach triadic improvisation to my students and can't stress enough how vital they are to everything they do. It really makes life so much easier when you deal with a smaller and easier chord form that you can use for comping and soloing. Instead of seeing six strings, they begin to look at 4 three string groups, and they're relationship to the CAGED chords and pentatonic scales. I use them all the time on both the acoustic and electric. I have an interesting soloing concept that I'd like to submit that involves triad extensions if you're interested.
