It is officially summertime here in Central Ontario and for me that means getting outside. I think I appreciate it even more after a long winter and indecisive spring and I can’t think of a better way to do it than sitting in a park or on a patio with some friends and playing music together. This week I have the perfect guitar for it too -The Taylor GS Mini Mahogany.
A smaller guitar is simply easier to carry around, but you often end up sacrificing tone. This is due to the body being smaller and not as powerful an amplifier [...] Read more

We take a lot of things for granted. Most of us have phones in our pockets that have more computing power than was ever thought possible. Most of us who rode in any sort of vehicle today just got in, turned the key, and started off with a very limited idea of how it worked (or how the key even started it in the first place).
Many of us who play guitar don’t really think about how they’re made. What goes into manufacturing them? How are woods selected? How does a pickup send sound to your amp? And the question I [...] Read more

Sight-reading is an essential part of every classical guitarists musical growth and career. However, apart from playing through easier repertoire it can sometimes be difficult for guitarists to find material to work on. The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) has recently published a series of books focused specifically on sight-reading in the beginning to intermediate grades.
Designed for use with a teacher or on one’s own, Joining the Dots for Guitar takes students through five levels of sight-reading exercises and instruction based on the requirements for the ABRSM guitar exams. Organized by key signature, each book contains warm-up [...] Read more

I had intended to write a different type of blog this week. The past 3 entries have focused on vintage-style instruments and I was going to change that. I was going to write about something fresh, something more modern. I even had a guitar all picked out. A few things happened over the past few days though; One of our colleagues was fortunate enough to acquire a 1936 Gibson L-30, a nice little archtop with its original finish. A few days later, a lady brought in her late father’s Gibson ES-125 from the late 1950’s, again with most of its [...] Read more

I’ve always liked Strats. I like the way they look, they’re comfortable to play, you get to pick between 5 sounds without even touching the tone knob, etc. My first electric guitar was a Strat and it’s still my main axe.
It’s also no secret that we love Suhr guitars here at Cosmo. I’ve seen dozens come and go over the years and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad one. I like how customizable they are, but I love that their regular-everyday guitars are made in the same shop and on the same benches as their high-end custom instruments.

If there’s one style of music that can claim to be the ancestor of modern popular music, it’s “The Blues”. In addition to branching off into Jazz then Rock n’ Roll, which has evolved into most of the styles we hear today, Blues music itself is now very diverse. There are many regional dialects and styles often influenced by iconic players who alter the very identity of the music.
If we look back on the past century or so, tracing the lineage of modern Blues music back to its source, we come to a familiar image: a musician sitting on a [...] Read more
