Classical Guitar Websites and Blogs

Recommended Classical Guitar Websites and Blogs:

Here’s a list of my personal recommendations for classical guitar websites and blogs. Feel free to inform me of other sites but keep in mind that I only list the ones that I actually read regularly and subscribe to. FYI, I have hundreds of RSS feeds in case you’ve wondered how I track so much across the web.

Bradford’s Top Picks

Sicca Guitars – This German guitar salon is great. Subscribe to their YouTube for fantastic and regular videos, the website is more about guitar sales.

Open Strings Berlin and their amazing Youtube Channel

Uros Baric, Guitarist – Three active sites: his personal site, his record label Baros Records, and his instructional site Guitarise. Uros = quality.

Classical Guitar Corner – Simon Powis’s Online School for Classical Guitar. It’s a paid site overall, some free stuff though, but most importantly, the quality level of everything is super high. Also has a podcast.

Sites and Social Media with Regular Posting:

GSI – Guitar Salon International
Similar to Siccas, this is a guitar salon that mainly sells high end guitars but their YouTube is also awesome.
