Hi! For the last year I've been writing a monthly blog post where I review the issue of Guitar Player from exactly 30 years prior. The posts share what I think I learned from the issue at the time of publication, as well as what I learn now from re-reading it. The January, 1988 issue had lots of great content, including interviews with Richard Lloyd, Carlos Santana, Carlos Alomar, and a history of Lynyrd Skynyrd, who who had recently reunited. The Spotlight feature also hipped readers to young fretboard phenom Greg Howe.
I found the issue to have lots of great content. I hope you find it interesting! You can find it at: http://icarusanybody.blogspot.com/2018/ ... go-in.html
