Rank #5: Amps & Axes - #019 - Mr. Dudley Taft
Well hello AaA fans. This week on your favorite podcast the guys start by talking about guitar picks. This used to be a simple, probably not much thought about aspect of playing guitar; Hey kid, you want a light, medium or a heavy? Now a days, there are many different types, styles and materials. Mick had checked out some samples from Graph Tech, but Jeff had not. Hmmm... But enough about that, their guest this week is a Blues guitarist named Dudley Taft, whom they were fortunate to catch before he took off for Europe. Enjoy!
