Ok - here we go! One of the longest and most enjoyable videos I've ever had the pleasure of putting together.
As many of you know, I do enjoy a trip to Nashville every once in a while.
On my most recent trip, I decided to take my camera with me and interview a few of the incredible musicians I've been able to meet over the past year of visiting Music City.
You can watch the full video via the link in my bio.
The musicians featured:
You're (probably) following too many guitar players.
Having been an active guitar player on instagram for four years now, I've learned a lot about the mental aspects of sharing your playing with the world through this platform.
If you've been on instagram for some time now, or if you're thinking about starting soon, I have some advice for you that I hope will be of some use if and when you start to feel stressed about building your instagram following.
These are things that I have learned from my own experiences over the past few years, as well as from communicating my frustrations with the platform to musicians I know personally.
I sincerely hope that it helps you all have more positive experiences with growing your audience on instagram.
Now that I have your attention, I've just uploaded a brand new lesson on the playing style of Joe Bonamassa - specifically looking at how he incorporates semitone bends into his lead lines.
This is a great way of adding notes from larger scales such as the blues scale and mixolydian to your minor pentatonic phrases!
Check it out the full lesson on YouTube via the link in my bio.

Switching between random ideas in E Lydian and E major. I've pretty much been playing Clapton/Bonamassa licks all week and this guitar has brought out a very different side to my playing.
