    The Fretboard Journal is proud to welcome you to the very first episode of Life on the Fretboard, a new podcast hosted by British guitarist, filmmaker, and writer Michael Watts. 
    For his first episode, Michael talks with the astonishing Scottish guitarist Tony McManus. Described by the late John Renbourn as “The Best Celtic Guitarist in the World,” McManus has toured the world delighting audiences with a combination of extraordinary musicianship and a deep connection with the music of Scotland. 
    The conversation flows from an impromptu meeting with the most famous man in Scotland; to heroes such as Renbourn, Bert Jansch, and Isaac Guillory; taking the stage after John McLaughlin and Carlos Santana; adapting Scottish bagpipe pieces for solo guitar; the unforeseen effects of meeting Pat Metheny; and what it means to live a Life on The Fretboard.
    Life on the Fretboard is sponsored by The Archtop Foundation www.theblueguitars.com and Microtech Gefell Microphones www.microtechgefell.de and brought to you by the Fretboard Journal magazine.
