Podcast 220: Guitarist Mike Squires

Guitarist Mike Squires went straight from the Marines to the Seattle music scene, eventually becoming a guitarist in Harvey Danger, the Long Winters and Alien Crime Syndicate. These days, he’s living on the East Coast and dividing his time between a day job, playing guitar for Duff McKagan’s Loaded and posting short music clips on Instagram under the hashtag couchriffs.

On this week’s podcast, we have a fun chat with Squires about his music journey, get his tips for how to land a gig as a guitarist (“be nice,” “learn ALL the songs..”) and much more.
