The Portland Guitar Society is a nonprofit organization for people who love the guitar. We sponsor and cosponsor many guitar concerts in the Portland area including the annual Portland Guitar Festival and the annual GFA Winner’s Concert. We have a lending library of sheet music, tapes, CDs, and records available to our members at meetings, and we publish a quarterly newsletter full of articles, reviews, and a calendar of guitar events.

The PGS meets at Artichoke Music Backgate Stage, 3130 SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland, Oregon. The meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of the month January-March; April-June the meetings will be held on the first Monday. (Our usual meeting place, the Community Music Center, will be closed for repairs during this time.)

The meetings start at 7 PM and are free to the public. Guitar enthusiasts and players of all styles and levels of ability meet with other players and listeners. Membership costs only $10 per calendar year. (Checks may be sent to: Portland Guitar Society, P.O. Box 15253, Portland, OR 97293.)

guitar store in portland

I live in the Seattle area and will be in Portland this weekend. Our local music store owner said she'd heard there was somewhere in Portland that is an amazing place to find a guitar (she may have meant used) - good enough prices and selection that it's worth a trip. Anyone have an idea of what she may have meant? Specifically, I'm hoping to find a Big Baby Taylor in great condition. Actually, I don't even care if it's scratched, as long as it plays beautifully.

Thanks

Lutes in Portland

Anyone know if there are any shops where I might be able to find an 8-course lute, new or used? Any luthiers in town I could contact for a lute?

I'm just getting started on the instrument (I don't play guitar), and hoped to find see an instrument before buying, rather than buying sight unseen.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Seeking a guitarist who'd like to make a few dollars

Hi Christie,
If you haven't already got someone, I would love to play for your group.
I can send you a cd; but in the meantime, please visit my website for some samples: www.jimskewes.com

History of the classic guitar

I always thought the classic guitar was an invention of Europe, however, recently a friend bought one in Shanghai for $100 Australian Dollars.
It is beautiful and 4 string. Could it be that the guitar started in China. Do you have any information on the history. Thanks in advance for your help. Grant Niver

Re: History of the classic guitar

You can read more about the history of the guitar at my website www.guitarhistory.us. I have a whole essay about the lineage of the guitar. I hope it helps you out!
