It's a 'String Theories' takeover of the Fretboard Journal Podcast!


Adam Levy and Ethan Sherman, the authors behind the excellent new 'String Theories' book, are taking over the Fretboard Journal Podcast for four episodes. We'll hear their personal New Year's resolutions, talk to some of their favorite musicians (Molly Miller, James Valentine, and Gregg BelisleChi!), and glean some life hacks and advice from these two professional guitarists and educators. We hope that these episodes will offer just the right food for thought as we all dive into 2024.

Guitarist and educator Teja Gerken joins us this week to talk about the making of his new solo fingerstyle album, 'Test of Time.' It's an eclectic album of originals, Celtic music, J.S. Bach and even John Coltrane's "Naima"...all played on acoustic guitar.

We chat about Teja's early love for fingerstyle, the gear he employed for this album (a Martin Custom Shop OM, a Lowden, a Taylor 355, and a National Tricone), his work at Peghead Nation and much more. 

Check out 'Test of Time' here: https://tejagerken.bandcamp.com/album/test-of-time

Atlanta-based Jason Mays has a unique perspective on guitars: He's a touring musician; the co-founder of YouTube's Working Class Music; he continues to work sales at Guitar Center; and he's one of the few people of color reviewing guitar gear. (We're also happy to announce that Mays is one of the FJ's newest contributors.)

On this week's podcast, we talk about his music career; the most popular overheard riffs at Guitar Center in 2024; the economic challenges of being a gear reviewer/demo artist on YouTube; and so much more.
