Welcome!

I personally stand behind all the content on this site — Michael Molenda

Do you LOVE guitar?

Do you want to be a member of a community of creative people sharing ideas, tips, and techniques to fire up inspiration and improve our chops, songwriting concepts, and recording skills? Do you aspire to be a mentor to others and join something that Plays It Forward?

Well, you may have found your people!

Guardians of Guitar is dedicated to evangelizing everything about your obsession with the guitar, guitar music, and guitar gear.

Founded by the longest-serving editor of Guitar Player magazine (1997-2018), Michael Molenda, GoG exists to help you do what you adore with more joy—whatever your skill level, style of music, age, sex, expertise with technology, or where you stand on analog/digital/tubes/solid-state.

We promise to accomplish this task without click bait, curated news, or other search-engine-optimization ploys. All content here will be original—with the only two exceptions being the YouTube guitar lessons the staff auditions and selects expressly for you, and the music embeds we offer to illuminate an artist’s work.

We are committed to making this a cool place for guitarists to share knowledge and support, and we are always available for your content requests and criticisms.

After all, everyone who hangs out at this joint is a GUARDIAN OF GUITAR. Thanks for joining us!
