April issue about Van Halen was a lot better.

Yeah, it was. The April issue I've read through probably 3 times. I haven't even read the May issue all the way through.

I like it. It's funny when people whine about a magazine having too many ads, but that's basically half the point of a magazine.

You know it.

Some of the issues are really bad, like May, then other are really good like April.

Guitar Player is soo bad, the one issue I got was just page after page of ads, but luckily Guitar World isn't like that as much.

Never read a guitar magazine. Always figured that it would be a visual collection of fanboyism. Don't care to find out if my conjecture is true.

It's mostly guitar ads and interviewing famous bands. So it's only interesting if you enjoy the bands they're interviewing.

yeah, but there have been times where i've been reading one of my mom's women's magazines while i'm pooping and there's literally ads every other page.

guitar magazines are boring anyway. i'd rather read Women's Day.

I've only seen their gear reviews on youtube. The dude doesn't really seem to know what he's on about half the time.

This. Buying guitar mags is only interesting if you actually give a fuck about the bands they feature. They give the occasional tab and review a couple of interesting pieces of gear if you're lucky. But that's the thing, its a game of roulette unless you look over every page before buying the mag.

Not really my thing, although I bought one because it had tabs for Steve Vai's ten hour workout, that shit was ballin'. But alas, I lost it, and now I'll never know how to do the workout (unless someone can find it for me, hint FUCKING DO IT hint)

I miss the vic jurvis and richard wright collumns. They were actually pretty usefull and of a decent quality as opposed to MAB reguritating crap from an albulm or andy alendort giving text felatio to whom ever is on the cover. I used to like the reviews then I learned youtube had gear reviews. As for the 100 things to make you a better guitarist I find amazing that learn standard notation is not mentioned.

Yeah, makes sense. I'm not a fan of advertisements, and I don't read interviews anymore. Guess guitar magazines aren't for me. Skateboarding magazines have slowly lost their touch and I don't really read those anymore either. Are interviews just for teenagers, or do adults like to read them too? I noticed that I was more eager to hear my favorite bands/artists/skateboarders/technologists answer interview questions when I was younger. These days I want 'em to shut up lol.
