    Sudeip Ghosh: Strings and Things

    Sudeip Ghosh: Strings and Things

    This time on the Strings and Things podcast, super-shredder Sudeip Ghosh is here to change the strings on his Dean Zelinsky guitar while our host, Patrick Grant, works on his trusty Les Paul. Sudeip grew up playing and singing Indian classical music, but a chance encounter with a hard rock mixtape ignited his dreams of power chord glory.

    Sudeip will tell us how a one-string acoustic and a scarcity of guitar magazines tested his determination, and how he’s come into his own as a metal guitarist, a film composer, and a Bollywood musician. As always, we’ll put the new guitar strings thru their paces when Patrick and Sudeip plug in to record some rollicking riffs.

    Strings and Things: Jeremy Nesse

    Strings and Things: Jeremy Nesse

    Bass player Jeremy Nesse's initial reaction to seeing a Chapman Stick was one of surprise."When I first saw it, I thought this looks like a board of wood from a picket fence or a two by four."
    Despite that first impression, Jeremy was inspired to add the 12-string tapping melodic bass to his arsenal of instruments by listening to Tony Levin's work with King Crimson and Peter Gabriel's solo albums. On this episode of Strings and Things, he relates to host Patrick Grant how his style of playing has developed over the years, from early childhood explorations of his Dad's vast vinyl collection, through his years listening to British new wave and to his interests in progressive rock and world music.
