This flame was adopted by Ben G of Rochester, who dedicates it to the Minnesota Guitar Society. Ben is a performing guitarist and guitar instructor, and he speaks of how he was influenced early on by MGS concerts and the musicians he heard. To this day, MGS brings world class guitarists to Minnesota. They also sponsor open mic-style jams at a St. Paul coffee house, where guitarists of all abilities can meet other players and also perform casually in a non-threatening environment.
