“Every guitar has some secret little thing it’s going to tell you.” -Bill Frisell
Guitarist Bill Frisell and the Fretboard Journal go way back. For this week’s podcast, we catch up with Bill and learn about the exhaustive new biography on him, Bill Frisell, Beautiful Dreamer: The Guitarist Who Changed the Sound of American Music. Bill also hints at his forthcoming album, discusses his composing routine, and talks about the guitars that kept him going through the pandemic.
We just posted a pair of videos from the same day this conversation took place:
“All the Things You Are”
“My Man’s Gone Now”
