#3 What’s On the Turntable This Week?
This week’s featured acoustic artist is Gwenifer Raymond who comes recommended to us by Acoustic Tuesday listener Mark Clark H. from Ardre, Gotland. Mark says, “She’s a young up and coming Welsh fingerstyle guitarist who’s influenced by Fahey and other American Primitives, as well as old country blues. She also has a PhD in astrophysics and designs video games in her day job–so pretty interesting bio. Her first LP just came out this year and it rocks deeply, or maybe picks deeply rather?”

#2 Tonewood Amp Review
The Tonewood Amp has been recommended to me many times. The folks at Tonewood were kind enough to send me a demo model. This unit is completely unassuming. Installation was super easy, and it did not mark the finish on my guitar. I was intimidated to install it but am surprised at how easy and seamless it went. Once installed, it was extremely user friendly. I see this as a very useful, creative tool.
