CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Check out our new blog!
The Music Maker Signifier has launched! Music Maker's new blog written by staff, friends, fans and musicians will bring you original, interesting content with a dash of signature Music Maker humor every Tuesday and Friday.

Why is it called the Signifier, you ask? Tim says "Signifyin'" is a slang word developed from a folk trickster character in African-American culture called the Signifying Monkey. It can mean bragging, boasting, or gossiping, and Wikipedia (via Gena Dagel Caponi) says it can also mean "a way of demonstrating respect for, goading or poking fun at a musical style, process, or practice." Guitar Gabe used that word so often that it really was the only choice for a blog name. Read our first posts here!
