International Guitar Month 2012
April is International Guitar Month and here at Lichty Guitars that is cause for celebration!
Here are ten ways to celebrate this month for guitarists:
1. Read thorough our posts for 2011 International Guitar Month. We shared one a day for the entire month and featured news on everything from great guitarists to guitar festivals to the story behind how BB King’s Lucille got her name.
2. During International Guitar Month buy two raffle tickets for your two chances to win a Lichty Guitar in 2012: One for the raffle of a hand painted Lichty Guitar to benefit LEAF / one for a hormigo guitar to benefit Livestrong.org. You will be supporting two great organizations with your ticket purchases.
5. Learn to play the ukulele during International Guitar Month. Jay was a guitarist long before he played ukulele and yet now you can find him playing a ukulele nearly as much as guitar. If you know how to play the guitar it’s just a small shift to play the uke and it’s so much fun.
6. Subscribe to Fretboard Journal. We read each issue when it comes cover to cover. It is consistently that good.
7. Build your very own guitar! Jay offers one-on-one guitar building workshops throughout the year.
8. Watch the short film by Erik Olsen, Made from Wood, which follows the building of a Lichty Guitar from start to finish
9. Attend MerleFest April 26th – 29th in Wilkesboro, NC and then when May rolls around head to Black Mountain to the Lake Eden Arts Festival.
10. Make 2012 your guitar year by placing an order for a custom Lichty Guitar!
