Maryland Independent - - Business -

Is­land Mu­sic Com­pany’s Gui­tar Club hosted spe­cial guest Tyler Lar­son, founder of in­ter­net sen­sa­tion Mu­sic Is Win, for a free clinic on Aug. 10.

This free event was streamed live on a face­book page while over thirty par­tic­i­pants got a sam­pling of Lar­son’s pop­u­lar on­line les­son se­ries cov­er­ing ba­sic fun­da­men­tals to ad­vanced the­ory, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

He gave an in-depth look at his pedal board — the setup, the di­verse sounds each pedal pro­duces and the cu­mu­la­tive ef­fect each has on his over­all sound. Lar­son, known for his hu­mor­ous YouTube videos on life as a mu­si­cian and his un­com­pli­cated teach­ing style, pro­vided ad­vice and in­sight into build­ing a brand via so­cial me­dia and the in­ter­net. “Tyler has great prac­ti­cal ad­vice for mu­si­cians who want to build a brand on­line,” lo­cal mu­si­cian and Gui­tar Club co­or­di­na­tor Chris Dean said in the re­lease. “We are al­ways look­ing for in­no­va­tive mu­si­cians and prod­ucts to fea­ture in the club ev­ery month. Tyler was a great fit for us. He had a lot of in­for­ma­tion and ad­vice to share in a re­ally en­ter­tain­ing for­mat.”

Is­land Mu­sic Com­pany’s Gui­tar Club is a free monthly clinic that fea­tures prod­uct demos, artist meet-and-greets, gui­tar jams and so­cial­iz­ing for gui­tar play­ers of all ages and skill lev­els.

Is­land Mu­sic Com­pany and Mu­sic Is Win first paired up ear­lier in the year when the La Plata shop fa­cil­i­tated an en­dorse­ment deal with Peavey and PRS Guitars for Lar­son. Is­land Mu­sic was the first stop on a tour of Mu­sic Is Win clin­ics. While vis­it­ing, Lar­son filmed “The 8 MOST Over­played Songs in a Gui­tar Store” which has been viewed over 2 mil­lion times on Face­book.
