About CMG Guitars
CMG, unlike most instrument manufacturers, is not a huge conglomerate that churns out guitars on an assembly line. It’s a small, independent company owned and operated in Statesboro, Georgia, by a musician named Chris Mitchell.
Mitchell, a long-time guitarist, designs and selects each guitar model and names them after people he loves. Rather than assigning a serial number, he gives his guitars names like "the Ashlee" (after his wife) and "the Mark" (after his brother and original musical influence). CMG understands how often musicians develop a personal relationship with their instruments, and the goal is to build this special guitar for you.

A recent study indicates that music-making can make the active older adult healthier!
Studies have shown:
Not surprisingly, there is mounting medical evidence to support the connection between music and wellness in older people. Thousands of music therapists now work in psychiatric facilities, hospitals, hospice programs and senior centers.
The movement got a boost from a recent study done jointly by the University of Miami and four other schools. Researchers found that 130 older folks who took organ classes showed decreased levels of anxiety and depression - and may have bolstered their immune systems by making music.

Be Sure To Look After Your Musical Instrument
Having a passion for music and your instrument should ensure that you look after it properly but you may need further encouragement to look after your instrument properly. The better condition your instrument is in, the better it will sound. Also, if you fail to look after your instrument properly, it may cause damage to the instrument, which could cost you money in repairs or a replacement instrument.
Given the current cost of living and the state of the economy, spending money when you shouldn’t have to doesn’t make any sense. This is why looking after your instrument to get the best from it can really help you to have fun without spending a lot of cash.
It is a fact of life that musical instruments will wear out but proper cleaning and attention can stave off this process. Regular cleaning and handling it carefully will help to keep your instrument in better condition. It is possible to have your instrument repaired or even serviced by professionals to ensure they look and sound great but caring for your instrument will minimise how often you need these additional services.
Modern instruments will not last forever, which may be annoying when you consider how much money has been spent on them but that is part and parcel of life these days. The lifespan of an instrument can be extended with care and attention but if your child has an instrument, you should expect it to suffer some bumps and scrapes.
Common sense is important for looking after your musical instrument.When looking after your instrument, common sense is always a good guideline but the following rules will help you to take better care of your instrument:
A cloth is an extremely important tool to use when cleaning your instrument, especially after playing. If you have a wind or brass instrument, there is a need to wipe down all condensation that may have built up when you were playing. You should find that a silk cloth provides the most absorbency and can clean even the tiniest of gaps. However, any cloth is better than no cloth at all and with a hankie, you can at least put it in your washing to ensure it is clean to use the next time after your play.
Carrying out simple maintenance and cleaning work on your instrument regularly will bring about a lot of benefits. It will ensure your instrument sounds good and it will help to ensure that the instrument remains in great condition. However, every so often, it can be of benefit to have your instrument cleaned or serviced professionally. Also, if you experience any difficulties and you have little experience, make sure that it is professionally taken care of.
Dealing with professional instrument repairers can also help you to find out more about the best ways to look after your instrument. If you need any further advice for your instrument, ask the professional what products they use or what techniques they have for cleaning. Learning from the professionals will ensure that you can give your instrument the professional touch even at home.
Cleaning your own instrument doesn’t have to be a difficult or time consuming process but taking care of it regularly will help you to get a better sound and much more life from your vehicle.
