In this episode, I have the pleasure of speaking with Drew Roller and Mark Fisher, the guys behind the idea and Kickstarter for the first and only documentary film about Modern Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitar.

The goal of the film is to take a magnified look at this incredible musical form through the lens of it’s history, culture, and the people that play it.

Link to the Kickstarter page here.

The main thread of the film’s storyline will be in a small village high in the secluded Austrian Alps, where once a year, guitar players from all over the planet meet to participate in a Fingerstyle Guitar Bootcamp to learn from the masters.

The documentary will also be suplimented with as many voices from the fingerstyle guitar community including Thomas Leeb, Jon Gomm, Antoine Dufour, Preston Reed, and many others.

I’ll be teaming up with Drew and Mark to help make this film a reality, and I couldn’t be more thrilled and honored to be onboard!

Thank you sincerely for all the support in making this project  a reality!
