Epiphone Les PaulEpiphone guitars are inspired by Gibson and made for guitarists of all abilities. I believe the world needs more guitarists, and Epiphone is making that happen by creating high quality musical instruments available at your local Best Buy at great prices. In fact, order it online—you’ll be very happy with the guitar and be learning to play your favourite songs in no time. On the blog we’ve been testing some of these guitars, and now you can enter for a chance to win one.

Do you have a guitar player in your family?

There are too few guitarists on this planet. The recent passing of the legendary Eddie Van Halen made me wonder if we are replacing guitarists fast enough. How many people in your family play guitar? My answer … not enough! This should be the age when everyone you know can play. After all, great quality instruments have never been more accessible or affordable. Holiday season is approaching and Best Buy has a huge selection online that you should really consider when creating your gift list.

And great quality instruction is readily available too. You’ve probably heard that many of the great players, like Eddie who I just mentioned, never had a formal guitar lesson. He would have likely learned a lot faster if he had the one tool that all guitarists use now … the Internet. Or you might already know a guitarist who can provide some initial lessons. I taught both my children to play guitar, and the first guitar I bought for them was an Epiphone.

Mama let that boy play some rock and roll
