Default Instagram Live - Luthier Q+A's

Hello everyone!

I have been holding a series of live interviews on Instagram and I'd like to invite you to join me and legendary luthier Michael Greenfield tomorrow May 23rd at 19:00 UK time (other time zones may vary...) that's 7pm for those who prefer things in 12's!



Last week my guest was my dear friend Jason Kostal and I've managed (it's a fiddly business) to upload that video to my YouTube channel.



These are Q+A sessions as well as informal chats so please do chime in if you have a question!

All the best

Michael

Michael,
I very much enjoyed this interview and would very much like to see these chats made available on you tube.

P.S. Tony Yamamoto (now retired) used paulownia a great deal making some guitars that were all paulownia, both top and bottwom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrCxZ_txmRw

Thank you Steve, I'm glad you enjoyed it! My chat with Michael Greenfield went very well and I hope to get it on to YouTube for you all ASAP.

I had no idea that Tony Yamamoto had retired let alone built with paulownia. I have only played a couple of his guitars but I enjoyed them! I'd be intrigued to see what he did with the Paulownia in person.
