We're on a role with the guest episodes this month! The guys sit down with Nick Johnston to discuss writing, recording, technique maintenance & breaking from the social media treadmill.

(Apologies for some plosive audio at times during this episode, we’ve done our best to reduce it but the occasional P and B might catch you off guard!)

The incredible Jonathan Kreisberg returns to TGHP to talk improvisation, writing, acquiring language/vocab, creativity and of course practising guitar.

Jonathan is a long time friend of the podcast and it was a total pleasure to (virtually) catch up in this multi-hour mega hang!

Jonathan was actually the very first guest way back on the old live streams circa 2016. You can check out those video interviews on Tom’s youtube channel via the links below.

This week the guys talk about getting stuck in a playing or creative rut, and what you can potentially do to clamber out of it. (Warning: the words ‘rut’ and ‘rutting’ become rather humorous the more said out loud. Banterbus is full this episode).

This week Beebee, Quayle and Smith chat to Ross Campbell about his conscious, early decision to move from studying music at university to crafting an online guitar business. Topics include using YouTube as the primary audience builder, workflows and generating ideas, avoiding burnout, balancing practise with ‘work’ and of course, how Ross visualises the fretboard.

Tom Quayle & David Beebee are joined by Levi Clay for a robust back-n-forth on building the chordal sound of a mode. Yes we’re back into hardcore harmony territory again, so grab your emotional support animal and favorite whiskey - it’s gonna get nerdy!

Despite the click baity titles (a subject we discuss in the episode) this is fun, civilised discussion. Thanks to Levi for coming on and playing along!

Jake returns with some things on his mind! He looks back on the last 3 years of professionally playing in the high pressure show world of London’s West End and talks to Dan (and half of a Beebee) about what he’s learned and how the experience has shaped his playing, confidence and match-fitness. The guys discuss ways to over prepare for the task at hand and raise your overall game in the process. 

Beebs had a catastrophic internet failure mid-way through, apologies for the slightly weird drop out! Thanks to Jake and Dan for riding it home!

Tom Quayle & Beebs are joined by the Lee Wrathe to talk about his unique career in the guitar industry. Lee is currently marketing director and head demonstrator for Ibanez UK and Laney with Headstock distribution, but was working in the UK Police force just 6 short years ago. There's a lot of wisdom in this episode for anyone thinking about changing careers later in life or just getting into the product demonstration world.

With Beebee & Tom away, Jake and Dan take the keys to the podcast machine and interview Rabea Massaad. The guys talk with Bea about his background, what it’s like touring, YouTubing, developing amps for Victory and the changing tide of what it means to be a guitar star in the digital era. There’s also a brief recapitulation of the fake instagram playing subject that’s only caught more fire in the last few weeks. 🥴

Old Live stream on Tom’s YT channel

Nov 21, 2019

This week the guys chat with the awesome Rhett Shull. Rhett is a hired gun session player with a successful and rapidly growing YT channel documenting his guitar life. Rhett also works closely with Rick Beato and on this episode shares some valuable insight into making guitar content online, juggling touring and making a living as a musician in the age of the algorithm.

There are two ‘after shows’ today - and in the patreon edit TGH boys get a little lesson in Bourbon from Rhett!

Tom Quayle looks back on over 10 years being on YouTube and how the landscape of online guitar has changed.

With Jake putting more time into his channel and Beebs contemplating doing the same, the team discuss what it means to start a guitar based YouTube channel in 2019, the possibilities, prospects and potential pitfalls.

They also finally get round to some discussion group comments and tackle the idea of learning, absorbing and utilising licks in solos.

Everything is fake these days. In the 90s all we had to worry about was Thom Yorke and his plastic trees, but today it’s the news, the deep...and now, worst of all...we’ve got fake guitar playing on the Gram. So the guys convene to tackle the recent hubbub of mimed, sped up shred vids and the community response to it.

The discussion then turns to a more interesting subtler shade of grey: ‘Jam’ videos with composed solos either explicitly passed off as improvised or implied to be improvised. Guess who’s passions are high on this one 😹

This is a great episode with strong debate tackling the important blurry boundaries between writing, improvisation, presentation, perception and preservation of image. What do you think? Let us know via email, facebook or indeed Instagram!

Tom and Beebee are away drinking all the whisky on the Scottish island of Islay, BUT…still find time (and sobriety) to sit down with guitars and nerd out on a special episode.

This week they answer listener feedback email to the grade exam episodes and talk about the parallels of wood obsession between whisky connoisseurs and guitar nerds.

Next, they break the “this podcast isn’t a lesson” line, and talk about expanding the number of chords that work within a key. Surprise, there are a lot more than 7!

This is a fun teaser and a window into some of the more lessony type content that is in the Patreon bonus episodes and Practise Posse live streams.

This weeks aftershow bonus for the Patreon edit features no banter, but Tom and Beebee in a whisky fuelled jam over a couple of standards. Enjoy :)
