You know what I did last summer! I didn't run over anybody in my car while cruising with my high school friends at Kolmer Gulch, but I did do something I said I wouldn't ever do, interview a 22 year old!

He taught me how to play Villa Lobos, how to convey the emotional nuances of modern Brazilian Music, and how to do my hair in 1997.  We never even met. Until Now! Here is my time with Brazilian guitarist Fabio Zanon.

Connie and I talk about her journey to performing original music by women composers, her position as general manager of the Guitar Foundation of America, and that time that we were forced to play music written by a petulant sophomore composer ( I said that, not Connie. Connie loves you. I hate you. Just kidding. I love you too.)

Hawaiian Guitarist Makana comes on to talk about the tradition of his instrument and the theoretical implications of the harmonies produced by the people of his home state. I went to Medieval Times for my 41st birthday. So I’m pretty cool too.
