About Us

What started as a hobby to share my love of guitar with the world has turned into much more. I never expected that so many people would be interested in what I had to say, and I am grateful for every one of you that takes the time to read my blog.

Team in Building

I am happy to say that I am not alone in this endeavor. There is a team of passionate writers and musicians who contribute to this site on a regular basis. Though I am the face of Pick Up the Guitar, I could not do this without them.

About Myself

Music has always been a huge part of my life, and the guitar is the only way I know to express myself. I also have been lucky enough to perform over 100 shows in my career so far and I’ve loved every minute of it.

I started this website because I always wanted to write and share my take on guitar and music. And I am so grateful that today we serve over half a million guitar players and music enthusiasts worldwide each month.

Music has the power to change lives, and I am honored to be a small part of that.

Thank you,

Dipanshu Mohapatra ( Founder/Owner )
