Pete Huttlinger is not just an excellent fingerpick guitarist, he is also a good friend of mine. He has also been a familiar name and face at our yearly Guitar Gathering (although he wasn't able to come this year because of his health).

On Wednesday, I had the awesome opportunity to spend the day doing interviews of great guitarists at the Historic RCA Studio B here in Nashville, on Music Row. The day started out with Rick Vito from Fleetwood Mac. You may know Rick, even if you don't "know" Rick. If you are familiar with the tune "Like a Rock" from the Chevy commercials, then you've heard Rick p [...]
