Bob Minner – “You Are My Sunshine”

Back at the start of 2018, Bryan Sutton inspired us to start a unique video project: Ask the musicians who come through the Fretboard Journal to give us their take on the same tune. We locked into “You Are My Sunshine” as the song of choice and have been busy filming (and editing) over a dozen interpretations (and counting) ever since, featuring artists like Bill Frisell, Noam Pikelny, Joe Henry and others.

We recorded Bob Minner – touring guitarist for Tim McGraw and all-around stellar flatpicker – during a visit to the FJ where we happened to have a new Collings C-100 on-hand (it was the same day we interviewed Collings’ Bruce VanWart for our podcast about this model).
