September Mega Update!

Just released! A new monthly song: Temperance Reel – A medium difficulty flatpicking tune!

The ULTIMATE Guitar Practice Routine

Just show up every day, and I'll tell you what to play!

Tony’s “Acoustic Foundation” toolkit (a beginner guitar course) has been postponed due to his pinky accident. Instead, Tony made a KILLER guitar maintenance course!

Start the Guitar Maintenance course here.

TAC 2.0 is still a couple weeks away but we’re real close! Our development team has delivered draft one. Now we need to fine tune, test, and release it!

The Acoustic Letter has launched on iTunes! You could have a 1 in 100 chance of winning a Martin Dreadnought Jr or DiMarzio Black Angel pickup if you leave a review for our new podcast! (please do, it will help us stay in the charts which is important for reaching a new audience).

The Chris Martin interview is up on iTunes as a video podcast now!

Here’s how you can win the guitar or pickup:

STEP 1: Click this link to watch Tony’s NEW Chris Martin interview (if you don’t see the Martin interview, subscribe first, then view in “My Podcasts”)

STEP 2: Subscribe to the podcast in the “Podcast” app on your iPhone OR within the iTunes desktop app.

STEP 3: Leave a review within the iPhone Podcast app or the iTunes desktop app. (Apple’s step by step instructions here)

The winners will be randomly selected from the list of Acoustic Letter podcast reviews and their names will be announced Thursday October 1st.

Help us hit the charts! Doing these three things will hugely impact our ability to be featured in the New & Noteworthy section of iTunes during our first week!

Watch, subscribe, and leave your review today to be entered!

    The interview with Chris was insightful. He respects the people who works for him and it appears he realizes it is they who are the foundation of the Martin guitar. I thought his comments about the cooperation amongst his competitors was refreshing. Also I give him credit for realizing the impact that letting talented people go during hard times will in the long run cost the company more when times are on the upswing and those talents are again needed. I guess I have come to expect such ideas and thoughts from the person who directs a company that has such a long standing excellent history as a maker of Guitars of the highest quality

      David,

      Thank you so much for commenting, The interview was really inspirational and one that left me with a feeling of admiration for Martin’s past, present, and future. Chris speaks of everyone within his company with the utmost respect, and you can just tell he truly values all of the folks whom make Martin what it is and what it will be. I am really glad you dug the interview!!!

      Cheers,
      Tony

    Congratulations on making New and Noteworthy on Podcasts!
    I really enjoyed the interview and the other videos. My review is titled “Tony’s Interview with Chris Martin” and it is by Stephen Thorald. I didn’t even try to get Williams.

    Does it help out if we leave more than one review? . . I mean with the ratings not the guitar give away.

    Hope the pinky is healing well.

    Hi Tony and Co.

    I left a review on September 2nd under the nickname sjh520 (headed “Invaluable Resouce”).

    I look forward to receiving my shiny new Martin soon. (Hey, there’s a one in a hundred chance that’s not a joke!)

    Good luck getting on the new and noteworthy list!

    Hi, sounds promising.
    But I hope you’ll also post the Martin interview and other future stuff in traditional, non-iTunes ways as I (and probably a number of other TAC members, too) don’t use iTunes and Podcasts.

    Using Win7 couldn’t use iTunes. Went thru the entire download process successfully and still nothing. Apple and Windows are like oil and water they just don’t mix.

    Hi guys,
    Really? iTunes ughh!!! (oops did I just say that out loud) LOL. ITunes video is not compatible with my computer so it says. I have downloaded a podcast app and posted a review comment there. I don’t know what name identifies me but its either Darleen or IMDD2U. Hope you get it and really hope its sufficient enough to be put in the drawing. I did subscribe. Cya.

    Love what your doing, but I do not have anything to do with Apple. Sorry.
    Hope this doesn’t effect the way future lessons are available.

      Thank you for your comment, this will nnot effect how future lessons will be available. All the lessons will function the same as they have, it just gives apple folks an option.

      Cheers,

    Not into Apple stuff. I have a hard enough time with PC’s.

    That being said I can’t access the tab music for Temperance Reel either.

    All news is good news at TAC. Can’t remember the namn of the review that I posted on the Chris Martin interview but my signature is there.
    BTW The link to the temperance reel isn’t working but I’m completely confident the JoelLevi team will have it up and running in no time flat.
    Cheers
