For over twenty years, Bob Minner has served as touring acoustic guitarist for Tim McGraw. But Bob’s day job barely scratches the surface of this fascinating multi-instrumentalist. On this week’s Fretboard Journal Podcast, we talk to this acclaimed acoustic musician about his love for bluegrass music, what it’s like to tour with a country music superstar and we discuss his new solo album, Six String Sanctuary: The Acoustic Hymns Project.

Fingerstyle guitarist William Tyler joins us on the Fretboard Journal Podcast to talk about his new album, 'Goes West' (Merge Records) and a lot more.

Tyler's been making his mark in the American-primitive space since his 2010 release 'Behold The Spirit' and has broadened his sonic and compositional palette with each succeeding release. It's our opinion that he's just getting started and we were thrilled to have the FJ's Ryan Richter interview him for this episode. 
 
'Goes West' enjoys a stellar personnel including guitarist Meg Duffy, bassist and producer Brad Cook, drummer Griffin Goldsmith, keyboardist James Wallace, engineer Tucker Martine, and even a guest appearance by Bill Frisell.

On this week's Fretboard Journal Podcast, we talk to Southern California builder Eric Galletta. 

Eric has been building electric guitars for over 25 years and has worked alongside numerous guitarmaking legends, including Wayne Charvel (Charvel Guitars) and Bernie Rico (BC Rich). But the focus of much of our conversation is Eric's love for the guitars of Paul Bigsby. 

Eric talks to us about his fateful encounter with R.C. Allen, the magic found in Bigsby-built guitars and about his own re-creations of these ultra-rare instruments.
