High Action Podcast from New West Guitar Group

John, Will and Perry are superb musicians and great teachers. In the first year of their podcast, they spoke with a number of world class guitar players about their lives and their music.
When musicians interview their peers and mentors, their conversations lead to many incredible insights. In the second year of the podcast, they are sharing teaching points and demonstrations of their own playing. For those who follow them on Patreon, there is video with the podcast and the teaching points can really be seen and understood. All and all, a must hear and see series for anyone interested in jazz and especially jazz guitar.

Great podcast, must listen for serious guitarists.

These guys are masters by themselves, all amazing players I have followed for a while, but when I saw the list of their guests, they definitely got my interest, especially with people like Leo Amuedo and John Stowell, 2 of my favorite players who definitely need to be heard by more people. Keep up the good work! Not as silly as Guitar Wank (love those those guys, too) but honest, good questions, good story telling. Thanks, New West Guys!

wonderful podcast

I'm a subscriber from south korea. I love hearing from these great guitar players. My only complain is that it could have been even better if there was common questions for all the guitarists about their strings, picks and guitars. I love when Bruce forman talking about his strings and when Anthony Wilson about his picks. Also maybe about their thoughts on feel and touch on guitar.
