Current Top Trend: #GuitarTok

TikTok makes it easy to find a community of people who have common interests. Whether it's basketball, the latest anime release, or 1980s Japanese pop music from the 1980s, it's easy to find people with similar interests. This week, we're putting the spotlight on one community that focuses on mastering the guitar, #GuitarTok.

From well-known musicians seen playing sold-out stadiums, to folks just picking up an instrument for first time, #GuitarTok is the catch-all hashtag used by TikTok's community of guitar players. While the community has existed for months, it has most recently gained attention thanks to the exploits of a new member, John Mayer. John Mayer joined TikTok in early March and quickly focused his content on teaching TikTok how to play guitar. From musical theory lessons to tips to playing some of his more difficult songs, Mayer has expanded the reach of #GuitarTok and grown the community at the same time.

John's content is perfect for TikTok and acted as a buoy for the community, encouraging other musicians to share their work or tips on the platform. When musicians like John Mayer share a riff for a Duet, or simply Duet a guitar lick they're impressed by, it's easy to see the growth and development of the community.

#GuitarTok is a hashtag that acts as a central point in the development of a TikTok community. Showing TikTok's power to bring together users to enjoy a common interest.
