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 for Online Classical Guitar

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

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

Open Strings Berlin and their amazing Youtube Channel

Classical Guitar Corner – Simon Powis’s Online School for Classical Guitar. It’s a paid site overall, but some free stuff. Doesn’t post much but more importantly, the quality level of everything is super high. Also has a podcast.

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

Women of the Classical Guitar – Amazing resource on the historical and current repertoire by women composers as well as players and luthiers. Their Twitter is worth following too.

More Classical Guitar Sites and Feeds

Classical Guitar MagazineThis popular print magazine has been more active online recently. Sometimes they can be a bit oriented to the general populous (not much new music or innovative stuff) but they have cool interviews and tons of access to professionals. They have a lot of paid ads and sponsored content which turns me off. Still good though.

Primo Guitar – Our ‘friend’ over at Primo Guitar posts very regularly. Mostly classical guitar but also a weekly fingerstyle guitarist as well. Geared to classical guitarist and fingerstyle twists.

Six String JournalLeonardo Garcia’s blog for aspiring guitarists, great lessons and ideas

Classical Guitar AliveNon-Profit, Tony Morris, great interviews, podcasts, media, and more. It’s an internationally-broadcast radio program as well.

tonebase – Another paid lesson site. Big access to pros and they outsource pro content so there’s that. On occasion I’ve found them to be a bit spammy but it can’t be denied that they are building something big.

Of note

GFA Reverberationsby various but mainly Connie Sheu. Not very active and kind of difficult to subscribe to, but hey, it’s GFA so you kind of have to.

Douglass Scott Guitarsby luthier Douglass Scott. Little informative updates about guitar building on rare occasions.

Gerald’s Guitar Grab Bag by guitarist & composer Gerald Garcia. Cool blog posts now and again.

Heike Matthiesen’s Blog by Heike Matthiesen, very active on social media so I’d recommend following her there.

Online Stores

All Strings Nylon – A few mid-range instruments, accessories, strings.

Strings by Mail – Mainly strings, accessories, sheet music. I use this.
