Insightful & Irreverent
You gotta love this podcast. Brett is the working person’s classical guitarist. Being a performer, composer and a teacher of all levels, he has his fingers on the pulse of the classical guitar world. Brett interviews provide deep insight of the biggest names in the business. His Michael Chapdelaine/ Segovia interview is pure gold and a reason why any guitarist should subscribe to this podcast. Along with the plethora of professionals as his interviewees, Brett’s personal musings of life in general are highly entertaining. What can I say, he is a true New Yorker with a microphone in front of him.
If you listen, you will not be disappointed.
Great guests conversation
Brett has some great guests and puts a lot of work into this podcast and I really enjoy listening to this!
An acquired taste
Bret Williams is bitter. He lives in a small apartment, makes little money, is under appreciated, and has gout. But he's also a fantastic player with amazing insight into the field, and a lot of famous friends who just happen to be passing through the greatest city in the world. These are open and honest conversations about the industry, guitar technique, musical history, and anything else that passes through Bret's wild mind. If you can sit through the 15 minutes of kvetching prior to the interview--and I recommend that you do--you will be rewarded with a humorous, intellectual discussion about classical guitar.
