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 (opens in new tab)/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.
