Podcast 318: Ariel Posen

Guitar great/singer-songwriter Ariel Posen just released a new album, Headway.

On this week’s Fretboard Journal Podcast, we talk to Posen about the making of the album, the art of co-writing (and how it’s changed in the pandemic), why he loves his Two-Rock amplifiers, and his current gear lineup.

Posen recounts his early infatuation with slide guitar, thanks to the music of George Harrison, Ry Cooder and Kevin Breit (who we interviewed during on Podcast Ep. 304). We also chat about why he’s begun to love Jazzmasters, why he prefers modern guitars over vintage, and much more. Jason also gives a recap on the ever-growing Fretboard Journal family of podcasts.

Bonus Content: Posen has posted a video just for Fretboard Journal readers showing you how to play “It’s You” from the album. Grab a capo and have fun…
