  1. I really like the very simple advice to “play more”. I think that has been something that could have helped me from the beginning of my guitar journey and could still help me to this day. I think I’m gonna remember this and try stepping up my play time. The second very profound thing was the part about the “folk process”. He’s nobody special, but it is a privilege to be a part of it. Wow, that’s right on. I loved that he said he didn’t have to play well, he just had to play what he could play. That’s awesome.

  2. The first song I heard by Charlie Parr was “Walking Back from Willmar” and it’s still one of my favorites.
