The Twelve Days of Fretboard

ShareThis

To celebrate seven years of publishing the world’s greatest guitar magazine, we’re unveiling the Twelve Days of Fretboard: two weeks of daily, exclusive videos featuring some of our favorite artists performing an intimate tune and telling us about their most valued instrument.

Among the surprises on our FJ musical advent calendar are a Grammy winner; one of the biggest names in indie rock; a young singer-songwriter with one of the most beautiful voices we’ve ever heard; and, of course, a guy in a Santa suit. Check this space for updates every weekday leading up to Christmas.
