Doug Young, author of the Stringletter course Acoustic Guitar Amplification Essentials, lives and performs in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is a contributing editor for Acoustic Guitar, for whom he has had the pleasure of interviewing many of his heroes, from Pierre Bensusan to Tommy Emmanuel. When Young’s not working on new guitar pieces, he’s usually recording himself or others in his home studio, where he recorded his self-produced CD, Laurel Mill. Young’s instructional book, Understanding DADGAD for Fingerstyle Guitar, is published by Mel Bay.
