MusicRadar, our flagship music-making website, attracts over 1.6 million visitors a month. In 2012 MusicRadar launched in the US and looks to expand throughout Europe in 2013 with a French edition launching in summer 2013.

Country music and ukuleles are just two of the areas we’ve expanded into over recent months, both topics published as part of our ongoing series of Play Guitar Now! specials – DVD tuition videos with an accompanying print guide.
