Classical Guitar Insider (music )

In the last several years the accomplished luthier Aaron Green has worn several hats, but the hat he likes best is shaped like a guitar (What? Why did I just write this?) because he builds guitars (What’s wrong with me?). Check out my interview with Massachusetts guitar maker and restorer of fine instruments. This episode is sponsored by GetBarkBox.com/Insider . “You can get dog stuff.”

The founders of the Kithara Project talk about their goal of putting guitar and classical music into the hands of children in areas that lack the resources for arts education and programming. You know, I can be selfless and helpful too. I'm just really busy with my podcast right now? And also I need to replace my headphones. I'm thinking bluetooth for the gym, but I don't know if they're sweat proof.

Chilean guitarist and composer Pedro Rodriguez comes on the show to talk about his homeland, being a nylon jazz player, and how much fun it is to hear Americans use foul language. He's in the right place because I swear like an older sister at a bachelorette party.
