#4 String Guage Selection Guide
A question I get quite often is that of string gauge. “Which gauge should I use and why?” It’s a great question because string gauge can impact your guitar’s tone, feel, and physical qualities. So in today’s episode, I give you the details on what to think about when choosing which gauge is right for you.
#3 What’s On the Turntable This Week?
This week’s featured artist has been on constant repeat for the entire Acoustic Life team. I’m talking about Phoebe Bridgers. An indy artist who seems to have a magical ability when it comes to songwriting and lyrical content. She’s released some kind of work every year since 2017 and all three releases NEED to be in your record collection.
#2 A Hockey, Bourbon, Guitar Collision
I’ve been looking for a while now for some way to get my love for hockey into the show. In and of itself it clearly doesn’t fit to have a segment… but I found a way to make it happen. Turns out that playing guitar and being a goalie is right up a human brain’s alley. Good for me AND for you since you get to meet some guitar geek hockey players, including a retired NHL goalie who is now making bourbon.
#1 Jason Momoa and Colter Wall
Sometimes I have a little extra time on my hands and I find myself going down a black hole of acoustic guitar related videos on YouTube. In this case, it paid off because I stumbled across this little gem of one of my favorite artists being fanboy’d by none other than Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, of whom I am said to resemble.
