Steel: Raphael McGregor

Steel is a Fretboard Journal podcast that dives deep into the world of the steel guitar.

For our second episode, we speak with Raphael McGregor, one of New York’s most interesting steel guitar players. Raphael has shared stages with the likes of The Brain Cloud, Nation Beat, Jason Loughlin, Grant Gordy, Noam Pikelny, and Matt Munisteri.

Raphael’s musical sensibility and technical style give him a really unique lap steel sound. We dig into his musical beginnings, his steel guitar journey, and more. He is also an organizer of the Steel Guitar Unconvention in Brooklyn, NY.

Steel is hosted by Matt Perpick. To learn more about Raph and his music, check out the following links:
