Soundboard Scholar is the peer-reviewed journal of the Guitar Foundation of America. Its purpose is to publish guitar research of the highest caliber. Soundboard Scholar provides a forum for all fields of guitar scholarship, including historical research, historiography, music analysis, performance studies, and pedagogy. Especially welcome are articles that connect the guitar world with current trends in mainstream musical scholarship or that connect non-specialists to the knowledge and insights that scholarly inquiry has to offer.
See the Call for Articles for a complete description of the journal.
