    Thought you guys might enjoy this. The last time I was at Brent's house, we did an interview and picked a bit. This is a short clip of us playing together.

    Anything that Brent does, I very much like!!!! He's one of my top favorite players and I would love to meet him someday.

    He's a really cool, down to earth guy and extremely generous with his time. If you're serious about wanting to meet him, shoot me a private message. We do guitar clinics a couple times where you get to hang out with and learn from Brent and other fantastic pickers (Johnny Hiland, Richard Smith, etc.).

    It's not an exaggeration for me to say that getting to pick with Brent and other players like him is a dream come true. I never imagined stuff like that would happen.

    That's awesome! There is an interview with Richard Smith and one with George Gruhn as well.

    This is Richard and I playing Jerry's Breakdown:


    And a teaser trailer of me talking with George:


    The full interviews are on my page too. COVID-19 put a damper on other scheduled interviews, but I have a lot more fantastic pickers lined up for after things settle down.

    Love to see how efficient Brent’s fretting hand is, his fingers barely come off the strings, and the picking hand, oh my.

    Just as effective at that tempo as it is on the album's! Very cool, thanks for posting.

    I agree. What completely blows me away is his fluidity, which like you said, comes from his efficiency.

    Awesome! I have a lot more interviews tentatively scheduled for as soon as it is safe to gather. In the meantime, I am putting together some gear demo videos and other material!

    I can’t wait. I’ll probably have seen all of your videos before dinner tonight.
