There are so many benefits to learning and playing the guitar (backed up by this report from Fender). From reducing stress and inspiring creativity, to boosting your immune system (yes, really), there's a lot to be said for the humble six-string.
The Coronavirus outbreak means many people will have a lot of time on their hands for the foreseeable future. To ease the stress of the current situation, many people are turning to music – and specifically learning a musical instrument – to help keep their spirits up and to ensure this enforced downtime is productive.
If this sounds like something you – or someone you know – would be into, Fender is currently offering a free 3-month subscription to their Fender Play tuition app to anyone who wants to learn acoustic or electric guitar, bass or ukulele.
