Throughout this interview, Jimmy has his PRS NF3 guitar in his hands, so he can show you musical concepts and passages that are meaningful to him ... and so he can jam!

Catch Jimmy Herring on tour this summer with his band, Jimmy Herring and the Invisible Whip, or this fall, when he'll be playing concert halls with his hero, John McLaughlin. The McLaughling/Herring tour is called The Meeting of the Spirits, and it starts November 1.

Guitarist JOE AUGELLO came home from teaching one day and was shocked to find his Long Island home was for sale. “I put our house on the market,” his wife revealed. “We’re moving to L.A. so you can pursue your dream.” Soon, the brave couple arrived in Hollywood, and Joe began chasing his vision of becoming an A-list guitarist working on big stages, in top studios, and on high-profile TV broadcasts all over the world. And the risk seems to have paid off, as Joe eventually landed gigs with Robin Thicke, Jennifer Hudson, Stevie Wonder, The Game, Backstreet Boys, Kendrick Lamar, and other superstars. On this episode, Joe plays guitar for you and regales many adventures, including being on stage with Miley Cyrus during the world’s most infamous “twerking” incident.

Matt also shares an an inspiring BRIAN MAY story, reflects on playing with BOW WOW WOW and other bands, and introduces you to his cool SHECTER guitars and ORANGE amplifiers …. And, yes — this is the 100th episode of No Guitar Is Safe! Thank you to the the many of you who have been faithful listeners and helped spread the word about this show. In celebration of this milestone moment, at the end of my interview with Matt I offer you a special epilogue in which I share some insights into the nearly 100 “helicopter rides” I have embarked upon to bring all these epic guitar hangs to your podcast feed. KIATY95!
