Guitar Player Interviews
Over the years we have been lucky enough to meet and talk with many great musicians. In these interviews with guitar players, musicians and songwriters we ask the artists where they got their start and about their different approaches to touring and recording.
Dave Sanderson sat down with Guitar Noise staffer Alan Green to discuss his new CD, Songbook, as well as all sorts of aspects of songwriting.
After listening to Disguise the Limit’s new album, Redemption, A-J felt that he just had to get in touch with the guys in the band. Guitarist Mark Summers agreed to share his thoughts on the group’s latest album and on his own career as well.
Sheryl just got back from Europe this past week and was kind enough to answer a few questions for us at Guitar Noise. I think that you’ll find her insights into jazz and songwriting to be both helpful and enlightening.
Read A-J Charron’s fascinating interview with this guitarist whose work spans four decades. Martin offers some fine advice concerning the nature of playing for a living and the attitudes that make it a lot easier on one’s well-being. A definite must-read!
Chris Juergensen’s latest piece for Guitar Noise is a Q & A with the legendary Adrian Legg. Get some great examples of Adrian’s techniques (banjo rolls, open string incorporation and pedal steel licks) to practice on your own.
One incredible songwriter/performer/guitarist meant getting two interviewers in for the job! Janis Ian kindly answers our questions on everything from getting into the business to internet music sharing. She even passes on a great tip that Chet Atkins gave her…
Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, A-J didn’t have to go to Sweden to interview the front man of The Flower Kings, although I’m sure he would have preferred to do so! Here is his interview with Roine Stolt, which covers everything from the band’s early history to his custom Parker Fly guitars.
