Episode 13 – Capo Challenge, Giveaway Updates, and Elvis is Lazy

On this wintery, snow-covered episode of The Music is Win Podcast, Bethany pretends to understand a Megadeth/Metallica joke, I try to play songs with a capo placed very inappropriately on my guitar neck, and we reveal the first winner of the holiday giveaway.

Episode 11 – The Music is Win Live Guitar Clinic Q&A

In this special episode of The Music is Win Podcast, I've cut together some highlights from the Q&A segments of a recent guitar clinic I did at Musician's Workshop in Asheville, NC. This event was put on to celebrate the guitar store's 50th anniversary, and PRS Guitars sponsored the evening with giveaways, deals, and myself as special guest. The audience was awesome and had some great questions, so I decided to put them into podcast form for your enjoyment.
