Fretboard Journal Live: Bryan Sutton

Bryan Sutton has a unique approach to the acoustic guitar: Every time he plays, he focuses as much on what his brain is doing as he does on what his fingers are doing. In this Fretboard Journal Live episode (taped before a Hot Rize performance at Seattle’s Neptune Theater), we sit down with Sutton to hear about his early days following Jack Lawrence and Doc Watson, his stint with Ricky Skaggs, his Martin D-28 and the unlikely help he’s received from sports psychology books. It’s a half hour conversation with one of the best acoustic guitarists alive today. Sutton also performs “Whiskey Before Breakfast” and “Been All Around This World.”
