    How Is COVID-19 Affecting Musicians?

    How Is COVID-19 Affecting Musicians?

    The COVID-19 pandemic is a serious issue, and one that I wasn't sure I wanted to talk about publicly, but after seeing how the social distancing is affecting musicians and other professional working creative people I thought we should have a dialogue on what the next few weeks/months could look like for musicians. My wife Tilly and I are discussing the outbreak, and looking at some of the silver linings in this current situation.

Okest guitar player ever ,

Good stuff man!!

As a late bloomer in the guitar world, your pod cast is so good. Very informative and helpful for us not so professional players who want to get better. Love your YouTube stuff as well. Your interviews are great. And I use interview loosely as you basically just have great conversations with people. Can’t wait to see what’s to come. Keep up the good work!!

I’ve followed Rhett for a while now, and I absolutely love his podcast. Every episode has been interesting, and it is great to get even more of a peek behind the music and relationships that we see on the channel. Thanks for the content Rhett!
