Podcast 314: Bob Minner Returns

Bob Minner returns to the Fretboard Journal Podcast to walk us through his new album, SOLO. Recorded entirely on the newly-announced Collings CJ-45 T, the album is a must-listen for Collings fanatics or anyone who appreciates great flatpicking.

During the chat, Bob tells us how he’s spent the last year off the road (he’s usually found backing Tim McGraw on acoustic guitar, a job he’s held for nearly three decades) and walks us through his home recording setup. We talk about Bob’s love for slope-shouldered guitars, his appreciation for both boutique and vintage instruments (including “Frankie,” his cherished 1936 Martin D-18), and why he dedicated a song to Collings employee (and former FJ Podcast guest) Bruce VanWart. Plus a lot more.
