The Traveling Guitar Foundation sends out a hearty welcome to the month of April! First of all, we welcome April as it ushers in the great beauty of new life and warmer weather. Second, with April arrives the celebration of International Guitar Month.
International Guitar Month was started in April of 1987 as a marketing campaign to increase sales of guitar equipment. The promotion of the event was technically ended by the companies in 1996 but the month has became a non-commercial reminder to celebrate the magnificent instrument of the guitar.
So, pick up and strum your guitar, listen to other musicians, or turn up your favorite riffs on your device! Also, click below to see 10 Ways to Celebrate International International Guitar Month.
