Semi Souames has an obsession for all things guitar. He is the founder and editor of two guitar blogs: Guitar Fail because guitar is fun, so we can make fun of it, and Muzicosphere, where he comments on the guitar industry, gear news and so many more guitar-related things. He also is a journalist — and he plays guitar sometimes.
