Rank #1: Sonny Landreth Episode #6
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
and I hope you get as much out of it as I did. Happy holidays! See you in January.

Rank #3: David Tronzo Episode #4
This episode we're featuring the incredible David Tronzo. Sideman, artist, innovator, teacher...he's all that and more. Listen to David take you for a spin in his magic jazz/experimental/free improvisation carpet.
Check out his video master class and various recordings here and if you are a student I highly recommend studying with him at Berklee:

Rank #4: Lee Roy Parnell Episode #3
This time we feature hit country artist and songwriter Lee Roy Parnell. Besides being a fabulous slide player and influencing so many country artists and songwriters he's a genuinely nice guy and very generous with his craft and insights to the biz. He's even been recognized by the Gibson guitar company with his own custom model Les Paul. I think you'll get a lot out of what Lee Roy has to say and I'm grateful for his time and spirit.
