Ariel Posen Episode #13  Podcast

This episode features Bothers Landreth guitarist Ariel Posen.  We spoke while I was in London and he in his new home of Ireland.  An extremely generous and kind person, Ariel spent a lot of time talking to me about all aspects of his approach and gear.  I hope you like it.  He is very active on Instagram and Facebook and posts new clips almost every day.  I hope you'll follow him and learn something.  Superb musician and human being.  Some clips:

Welcome to another episode!  Thanks for sticking with me.  This time out it's the wonderful Norwegian slide-pedal steel artist Geir Sundstol.  One of my favorite players of all time.  Extremely innovative, creative and expressive player.  I've attached some videos I think you'll like and copied the tunings he sent me that we spoke about in the podcast.  Enjoy!

Debashish Bhattacharya Episode #7  Podcast

We start 2017 with the incredible Debashish Bhattacharya, a very special interview for me as I have been practicing, and failing, to his music and videos for some time.

He is a true musical treasure and has a lot to share both musically and spiritually.

Sonny Landreth Episode #6   Podcast

Last episode for 2016 is a doozy...Sonny Landreth y'all!!!!
Very inspirational and informative, Sonny has a lot to teach all of us about technique, style, tone, you name it.
He embodies all that is great, wonderful, mysterious and beautiful about slide guitar.  My chat with him was very illuminating
