Interview of  Shai Sebbag: a rising star in fingerpicking

Shaï Sebbag is a musician I had the pleasure to interview several times in French, for the release of "En Equilibre" his third album it was more than time to record and English interview so his non-French speaking fans can get to know him better and also for new people to discover his universe.

With this latest release I think Shaï reached a new peak as he is delivering some awesome compositions played with an impeccable technique without useless technical demonstration.

Enjoy,

Pierre.

Audio interview with Doug Scarratt from Saxon

Back in 2012 I had the opportunity to meet Doug Scarratt while he was in Paris to promote a Saxon best-of album. This interview is one of the many gems I have in the vault, time to release it I think!

Double interview with luthier Michael Spalt

Here's an interview I did during the Salon de la Belle Guitare of the festival Guitares au Beffroi (www.guitaresaubeffroi.com) which took place in Montrouge near Paris in March 2015.

Austrian luthier Michael Spalt was there as an exhibitor and as the president of the European Guitar Builders (EGB). One of the main activity of the EGB is the organization of the Holy Grail Guitar Show where I went for the first edition in Berlin last year.

So we did two interviews instead of one! The one above is the one about his life as a luthier. The one below is as the EGB president.

Review of the Dragon's Heart Guitar Picks: a cool triple edge pick

More than ever there is a humongous choice of picks available nowadays.

I recently received a set of Dragon's Heart Guitar Picks. I admit I was intrigued by the original shape of the model which present three different edges: a sharp one, a normal one and a round one.

Here's my review of this cool pick.

Interview with the legendary Grover Jackson

While I was in Los Angeles for the 2015 NAMM show, I met completely by chance Grover Jackson one morning in the alleys of the show even though he did not have a booth with GJ2 Guitars.

He proposed me right away to come and visit their workshop in Orange County, no need to say I jumped on the opportunity. The video interview from which you can see n extract below was done at his desk.
