Theacousticguitarist.com began life in 2019 as a blog about acoustic guitars, songwriting, home recording, and guitar theory. All articles are written by me, Marty Banner (see bio below).

My editorial policy is simple. Write about what I know, and have actual real-world experience in. You won’t find product reviews on this site unless it is a product I have owned or have extensive experience with.

About the Author:


I’m Marty and I’ve been obsessed with music for as long as I can remember. I’ve been involved in many ‘guitar-centric’ businesses including founding guitarkitworld.com (now under new management), customguitarbuilder.com, alternateguitartunings.com, and blogging on theacousticguitarist.com and theleftyguitarist.com.

I’ve performed, recorded, and written music for numerous projects on the Sunshine Coast, and Brisbane in my home state of Qld, Australia. I’ve also written hundreds of songs from my humble home studio in Samford, Brisbane.

If you have question about any of the articles featured on the website, or you’re interested in getting in touch you can find me on Twitter or check my demo page for some of the music I’ve written.

If you have any questions or just want to get in touch, feel free to email me at marty@theacousticguitarist.com.
