The Guide's February BIG NEWS edition awaits you

Psst. Hey you. Yes, YOU! Over here. Two things. We want you to know - quietly - that the March BIG NEWS edition arrives soon, and we don't want you to get trampled in the stampede. So we're telling you quietly.

Meantime, there isn't much time to play catch-up with FEBRUARY's BIG NEWS edition (published Jan. 22nd) hint-hint.

For this next go-'round, we're working on MANY things for you - from alllll over the magical realm of acoustic and Americana music. That includes our Grammys review, and lots of fresh music industry news - which of course means several in-depth reports about NAMM, music's largest annual trade show (yep, MORE, in addition to our daily editions published during NAMM's four-day run). Suffice it to say, our next edition will bring you a whooooole lot.

That's soon. How about NOW?

Yes, yes, certainly. So, did you find all the treasures in our most recent BIG NEWS edition? It was GAR-GAN-TU-AN! 'Purt near all the locomotive could get up the hill. Hefty, even.

The full list of "what's in it" is a lot more interesting than reading the ingredient panels on goodies at the grocery store, and it's better for you! (And you can do that, just below.)

So if you still haven't explored all the nooks and crannies of that LAST one, the FEBRUARY edition - well, it's here, waiting for you.

You can read a few stories at a time (it's so nicely organized that it's easy to do that and not lose your place), or you can go for the full immersion and catch-up with everything all at once!

It's at ~

(or, just backup one click and scroll; it's available just below or in the sidebar at left, depending on where you're reading this).

Drum roll, maestro. 'Cause here's where we tempt you and make you say "Wow!" about all that's in that last BIG NEWS edition.

Let 'er go, maestro, with the three-part harmony! And feelin'!
