The Sounding Board
Started in Summer 1996, this site "is intended to be a home for acoustic musicians, particularly guitar players. It will feature bands, music, transcriptions, reviews of new CDs and of new equipment..." Although other, older web sites and RMMGA fulfills these purposes, perhaps he'll find a niche.
Classical Guitar Home Page

General Guitar Web Sites

Top 25 Guitar Sites
Visitors' votes determine which guitar sites make this list, which provides daily and weekly rankings of guitar sites of all types.
Yahoo's Guitar Listings
"An Internet Resource for Musicians" of all types, not merely guitarists. However, its organizer, Scott Lehman, mostly plays guitar, and thus this site's Guitar Resources section is first-rate.
Six-String Arts
A page hosting information geared towards beginner and intermediate players, including articles on chord functions, the circle of fifths, beginning fingerpicking, stage fright, etc.. An AOL site that crashes SunOS browsers.
Waldo Pepper's Guitar FAQ and Information
A small collection of links and brief FAQ documents, mostly related to the electric guitar; home of the Mesa Boogie Triaxis users group. Features an unusually unreadable home page!
Omni Guitar
A collection of links and information resources by Ted Viera, author of the "Essential Concepts" guitar instruction book, which is excerpted at the site. Ted is an electric jazz player.
The Internet Guitarists Network
A currently (Spring '96) small but growing collection of guitar links. Unfortunately, it doesn not come near to living up to its hype: "the single most important source for guitar related information on the internet."
Guitar Haven
A nice collection of informative pages, including particularly valuable FAQs and lessons, as well as a "Chord Finder" providing fingerings to basic chords, and a page of software links.

Cal Woods's List of Internet Guitar Resources

Essential Strings
"Offering free basic listing services and low cost web publishing to musicians, instrument builders and instrument dealers interested in establishing a web presence."

Guitar Resources
The Guitar Page
A presumptuous title and an unusually tasteless graphic design distinguish this latecomer (June '96) among guitar sites. Still, it looks like they put some work into it. Info is categorized according to style (although the links were confused when last tried).
Moved to webcom???
Doc's Guitarland
A nice collection of guitar resources compiled by Dennis O. Cline ("Doc").
Guitar-world of the Internet
OAGL: Online Archive of Guitar Links

Liam Hackwith's Guitar and Bass Links
Chlorine's Modern Rock Guitar Site
A visual nightmare; but if you can read past the ugly graphics there may be some useful information here!

Ignore the gratuitous JavaScript and self-promotion, and you might find this to be a useful collection of links. But it is uncategorized and merely lists all sites alphabetically, regardless of topic.
Blues Net
EE Shop Music Page
The Guitar Page
A newcomer (do we really need more guitar pages, folks?) that is high on appearance and low on content as of its opening in Summer '96.
The Guitar Homepage
Once you get past the pretentiousness of the title/PR for this site and the hype on the site itself, you'll find some tab (mostly to rock and pop tunes), chord charts, and software for netborne guitarists. As of Sep '96 several internal links at this site did not work.
Steel Guitar:
Bob Quasar's Peadal Steel Guitar Page
Information about pedal steel guitar.
Brad's Page of Steel
Information about electric and acoustic lap steel guitar.
