This month, as well as your usual guitar-packed TG, you get a free How To Write Your Own Songs book! Along with tips from your favourite players, to help you get those creative juices flowing we’ve teamed up with Yamaha Music UK (uk.yamaha.com/0870 444 5575) to offer one reader the essential kit for writing and recording songs.
The Yamaha CPX500 acoustic has great features for budding songsmiths, like a spruce top, cutaway and a body that’s designed to give a full acoustic tone. The onboard System 55T electronics allow you to shape your tone when plugged in, and there’s even a built-in tuner that’s great for making sure those inspired moments sound perfect.
The Pocketrak 2G is a handy field recorder that you can take anywhere, with a maximum recording time of nine hours – that’s about an entire career’s worth of songs! The 2G can also connect to a computer via USB and comes bundled with Steinberg’s Cubase AI software so you can store, edit and enhance your recordings on your computer after you’ve recorded them.
