The Summer edition of Guitarist Presents Acoustic is dedicated to the memory of the great Bert Jansch. The Scottish guitarist passed away seven years ago, but his influence still reverberates throughout guitar music. Who else could be a touchstone for both Led Zeppelin and Blur’s Graham Coxon – and hundreds more influential artists besides? In this special edition, we trace Bert’s rise through the folkways of British music in the 60s, with captivating first-hand accounts of the smoky barroom gigs and acoustic epiphanies that shaped Bert’s music, from some of his closest musical contemporaries including Gordon Giltrap and Ralph McTell. If all that’s given you an appetite to hone your own acoustic skills, then dive into our absorbing interview and masterclass lesson with unplugged virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel – or lose yourself in the evocative world of acoustic blues with British folk guitar icon Martin Simpson. With a raft of reviews of hot new gear, a thought-provoking feature on the future of tonewoods with Bob Taylor, co-founder of Taylor guitars, and much more, it’s a packed issue that you will enjoy reading from cover to cover.
