“Guitar Player TV expands Guitar Player’s print trademark to a vast, uncharted community of players and music enthusiasts who exclusively derive their information from the Web,” explains Michael Molenda, Editorial Director of the Music Player Network. “And, boy, are those players and fans going to flip over the multimedia experiences offered by this channel. From lessons to behind-the-scenes interviews to special concerts and ‘sitdowns’ with the GP editors, users of all skill levels and musical styles will be simultaneously educated and excited by the rich content on GPTV. GPTV is a fun and truly delightful resource for picking up new techniques and improving how you sound and play.”

“Guitar Player TV is exciting from the professional musician’s perspective as well,” adds Jazz guitar legend Larry Carlton. “The site allows us to share our music and expertise in a unique way with our current fans, and it helps us reach out to a new generation of up-and-coming guitar players who use the Internet as their primary resource of for entertainment, tips, lessons, and live music.”
