Relevant & Insightful

As a church guitarist there are so many resources online to try and craft your sound. What I like about the Elevate Guitar Podcast is Ryan’s straightforward insight to the foundation of getting great tone! I tried a few of his tips and tricks and it made an immediate difference in my sound! I also like his take on the digital vs. analog debate, it’s given me some things to think about as I consider that transition.

I think the thing that strikes me most about this show is that Ryan approaches the subject from a place of personal experience. He’s like me showing up for church and playing to serve the Lord. But he draws on his knowledge from playing professionally and that adds a bonus element for me.

I would recommend this podcast for anyone who’s looking, or is already plays guitar in church, and I look forward to each episode as they come out.
