(p.41) Chapter Three The Guitar in the BMG Movement 1880–1900
The Guitar in America

Jeffrey J. Noonan

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the role of the guitar in the banjo, mandolin, and guitar (BMG) movement in America during the period from 1880 to 1900, and explains that the BMG movement, instigated by S. S. Stewart’s Banjo and Guitar Journal, only served the magazine’s unstinting devotion to the banjo and an unrelenting desire to make money. It also discusses the evolution of BMG clubs into mandolin orchestras, the distrust of the traditional guitar, and the emergence of American guitar soloists.

Keywords:   BMG movement, guitar, America, S. S. Stewart, banjo, mandolin orchestras, guitar soloists
