Nobody Is Going To Make It Happen For You | Greg Koch Shares Wisdom For Guitarists
Greg Koch is one of the most beloved guitar players around today, his monstrous playing, quick wit and ability to adapt have kept him working and in demand as a guitar player for well over 35 years.
I eat up music industry podcasts and videos, but sometimes it can be tough to find informational content that doesn’t feel forced or disingenuous (those who can’t do teach—that sort of thing).
That’s not the vibe I get with Rhett. He’s a highly competent player, a good (and constantly improving) interviewer, and overall just a fount of knowledge about the realities of being a working musician.
Rhett does a great job of turning an interview into what feels like a very organic conversation. Great guests too.
Great podcast, but the giggling....
The Bukovac interview was really cool but the constant giggling made it difficult to listen to. Sorry, gotta agree with these other folks. I'd give it 5 stars otherwise - you have real conversations with your guests.
