Best Musical-Instrument Store

Georgetown Music Store

There's a special place in every musician's heart for the local music store where they got their start. At their best, these stores double as supportive communities, where future bandmates meet and beginners learn their first bar chords and rock beats. Their employees act as nonprofit accountants, teachers, psychiatrists, and business managers. In South Seattle, this role is filled by Michael Smith's Georgetown Music Store, located in the old home of the Georgetown Pharmacy. It's quite appropriate, really, 'cause if you've got a fever, the only prescription is "More cowbell." CHRIS KORNELIS 6111 13th Ave. S., 767-2718,
