Serious about music – You have to be at Guitar Nation 2010!


  1. I find the idea very interesting considering the lack of proffesional help regarding music. It is very hard to find decent help and most universities only cover classical music and they take a lot of time and energy to go through.

    Besides, wouldn't you like to see the musicians of your dreams and ask them what you want?
