I posted  about Joe's instagram here back in June. It had 302k followers. Now 7 month later - plus 48000!!! Wow. Everything he posts about is so cool and interesting. Take me: before I found Joe I didn't even know the difference between acoustic and electric guitar. I am not exaggerating, it is an embarrassing truth. The instrument just didn't interested me. Pianos, violins, flutes and saxophones , even bagpipes (haha... smile ) but not guitars . It was in era Before Joe. Now all I want to learn about, look at and listen to is guitars. And there is no better place for it then Joe's instagram page. Love, love love every little thing about it.

450K now
"joebonamassaTo say I’m humbled and blown away that 450,000 people enjoy the ramblings of a guitar nerd is an understatement. Wow! Thank you all who participate on this page."

I don't always comment there but I do enjoy his ramblings!

Today's thought after looking through Joe's instagram page: among all the amazing posts of magnificent guitars, his superb backstage jams, pictures with legends of music history, and just beautiful and interesting pictures with witty and funny captions - tah...dhamm... - the biggest number of likes got his post where Joe said "I f*cked  it"..... And sadly it is just how the world works.

Re: Joe's instagram now 350K followers **Edit: now 500K

yeah i can't keep up with all of them but its interesting to see those kind of stats and also to read some of the comments there
mostly great that he posts so much though

sometimes i try to answer fans asking stuff but its hard to keep up with
someone was asking abut a guitar contest they saw on FB
i will try to look into it, maybe is legit contest i can tell them is on this site too?
i'm not much of a user there but if i type @ and the persons user name it should give them a notice that someone tagged them so they can see it right? thanks

Re: Joe's instagram now 350K followers **Edit: now 500K

its slightly off topic for this thread but i didn't want to start a new one for this comment. While i was looking for the jnR phone number last night to help the person in another thread...i explored a little of the website that I hadn't in a while....i noticed that they have listed on the press kit page (IIRC) some of these stats...they are still at 450k for the instagram but I found interesting to see they have 1,000,000 email subscribers. Something i have often wondered about.
Impressive number.

Re: Joe's instagram now 350K followers **Edit: now 500K

Joe did his first instagram live yesterday. He answered a lot of gear questions and gave 360 degrees video of the "Amps and Orange Couch Room" in Nerdville West.  Apart from that few pieces of info: RAH band will be the same, but Mahalia is switching with Huanita again; his is going to tour Australia this Septemrber; he loves Greta Van Fleet and thinks they are the future of rock-n-roll music; one of his all time favorite Free songs is "Walk in My Shadow".

Re: Joe's instagram now 350K followers **Edit: now 500K

thanks for that info....i dont have a smart phone and have been doing instagram via PC but they are making ii harder..not sure if i would even be able to find that feature? but glad to hear the summary  smile

537K followers now but i'll wait to 550 before updating thread subject line
amazing how he is ruling instagram too....fun to read many of the comments but too much for me to keep up on
