It’s somehow been almost six months since the last issue of QRD. But to make up for it there will probably be three issues of QRD all up within about a month (a label owner special & a comic creator special in addition to this guitarist special) & then hopefully some more content in a couple months (the long rumored drummer & touring musician series). There’s been a lot going on for me the past six months as far as having a couple of semi big comic book projects (Bottle Comics & the Cyberpunk Apocalypse Residency (which included my first ebook)) & launching Silber’s series of five songs in five minutes EPs & now the Silber Button Factory designing & making custom buttons (let me know if you need buttons made).
Last issue I mentioned people clicking on ads causing an increased in our advertising revenue. Well, get this, Google noticed it too & they said that encouraging people to click ads was a breach of their terms of service (don’t ask me why) & they canceled my account. Which is fine, I wasn’t making too much money off of them anyway. So now I have the Project Wonderful ads & we’ll see if those work out. Of course you are always welcome to support us directly through our super affordable ads.
This issue is a continuation of our in depth guitarist interviews & I threw out a call to past contributors who had discovered some significant changes in their guitar playing over the past couple of years & got some updates from Andras Fekete & Martin Newman, which is kind of a cool thing to me. Anyway, below is a list of the interviewees.
