Podcast 138: Noam Pikelny

 Banjo virtuoso Noam Pikelny joins us on this week’s Fretboard Journal Podcast to talk about his new (and excellent) solo album Universal Favorite, some of the instruments in his growing collection (including his 1930 Gibson Granada, his 1941 Gibson TB-7, his 1953 Martin D-28 and his 1953 Fender Telecaster). We also talked about the creation of his hilarious “Making of ‘Universal Favorite'” video. While here, we also filmed Pikelny in action. Watch the video below of him playing “Redbud” at our offices. Get Noam’s tour dates and order Universal Favorite here.
