Weird logo?

Doesn't look weir....

....oh. That thing. That's a tulip, right? Oh. A headstock? No?

Okay. It's weird.

John,Thanks for the invite and thanks for your effort.

Just my two cents...NEED is maybe a little strong, but besides John's column, there's a lot of information and a lot of music to play in each issue. You won't regret subscribing that's for sure. Dan Miller has put together a very good publication that maintains very high standards.

Regarding non-subscribers to Flatpicking Guitar Mag; while it is not required to be a subscriber, it is highly recommended, as you will be able to read all the columnists and articles.
Regardless, you are all welcome here!

As a proud subscriber, I would highly recommend become one. There are great articles, tabs and lessons in each issue that I have received. FGM has helped me understand more about the guitar as well as helped my playing.
I might have to miss a meal or two one day, but I will remain a subscriber.
Great stuff, thanks Dan.

Hey, John, thanks for getting this up and running. I'm looking forward to participating, as much as I can, anyway, and learning more by following the threads....
