    On this Patrick Sweany Interview: Patrick shares his journey into music and the challenges he faced in breaking through… the importance of being true to yourself and the impact of meeting and learning from blues legends like Robert Junior Lockwood. The value of live performances and the experience gained from playing gigs and open mic nights… his move to Nashville, and the inspiration behind his song 'Them Shoes' from the album 'Every Hour Is A Dollar Gone'. The challenges of trying to make a name for himself in a competitive Nashville music scene and the difficulties he faced in finding work and being accepted by the local musicians. He also opens up about low points and dark periods in his life and how he navigated through them. The conversation ends with a discussion about personal growth and the importance of letting go of anger, and the toughest decision Patrick has had to make, which he struggles to answer. The significance of admitting mistakes and the importance of being open-minded. Patrick reflects on the changes in his personality over the last 10 years, particularly in becoming less confrontational and more open-minded. 
    Patrick’s an awesome blues guitarist, singer, songwriter & artist originally from Ohio and currently living in Nashville. If you’re a blues fan, especially of the old school guitar approach where the guitar exists to create harmony, soulful fills and solos, with great tube breakup, then you’ll love Patrick. He also uses his voice as an instrument to help create the overall vibe and feeling in the songs, as opposed to just “singing.” He’s kind of like Muddy Waters or Howlin’ Wolf in his approach. I first got turned on to Patrick when I heard his song “Them Shoes” - I think… in either a movie or television show. I immediately downloaded the song and listened to it about 50 times over the next week - it’s awesome. Since 1999, Pat’s released 12 LPs and an EP

    On this Tyler Armstrong Interview: His upbringing in Springfield, Illinois and his transitioning from baseball to music… early experiences in sessions and the challenges the band has faced in the music industry, recent success & opening for Blackberry Smoke. Reaching out to bands for opportunities, the importance of authenticity in music, the dynamics of rock music, the meaning behind specific songs, value of authenticity and being true to oneself, the impact of personal experiences on songwriting. Spirituality and how it has influenced his life, including his unique perspective on how he views God and the role of sacrifice in his life. A review of his main guitars, his hobbies outside of music, including fishing and being a fan of Illinois Fighting Illini basketball. He expresses gratitude for the supportive community in his life and offers words of wisdom to live life to the fullest
    Tyler is the primary songwriter and guitar player for the band FEEL. FEEL is an up and coming band and I can assure you, this band will be making waves very soon, and I wanted to turn all my listeners on to them. If you like old school rock and roll, with a unique style that includes blues, rock, some jazz, great long jams, and lots of break up on tube amps, you will LOVE these guys. FEEL has an EP out called Live in St Petersburg, made right down the road from me at Jannus Live St. Pete, Florida. I was also lucky enough to get a sneak preview of some of the band’s new tracks and all I can say is we’re all in store for great music as they continue releasing new music moving forward.

Guy Pratt

Craig, thanks for this wonderful peek inside the life of Guy, who’s my favorite bass player. As a 75-year-old, sixty-year-old bass hacker, I’m staggered by Guy’s diversity, not to mention his playing. I met him briefly in ‘94 on a Floyd tour, and now I know what a terrific guy he is.
Great interview. Thanks.

JaySix ,

smile more, say less

Great guests and a lot of knowledge but A LOT of talking over guests and long rambling from the host which is frustrating when the guests have so much to say but keep getting cut off:

Great guests, great interviews!

Recently discovered and fell in love with this podcast. The guest list is spectacular, a who’s who of guitarists’ guitar players. Keep up the great work, Craig!
