Guitar Dreams is a collection of interviews, articles and compelling photographs that celebrate plucked string musicians and luthiers whose work delights, challenges, and inspires all of us who care passionately about the back stories behind the music and the instruments we love. Many of these pieces first appeared (some in different form) in the pages of The Fretboard Journal and Acoustic Guitarmagazine, while others appear here for the first time. Included are many previously unpublished photographs.
Musicians profiled include Nato Lima (virtuoso nylong string guitarist), Jerry Byrd (steel guitar pioneer), Gabor Szabo (jazz and world music pioneer), Amos Garrett (Telecaster master), Muriel Anderson (fingerstyle virtuoso), George Barnes (seminal jazz guitarist), and many others. The book also spotlights amazing luthiers like Bill Asher, Carol Benoit, Steve Spodaryk and more. NOTE: as of 1/17/16 the US Postal Service has raised its rate.
