  1. Absolutely LOVED the extended, “Top 10” segment on Colter Wall! Hoping that you’ll continue this more frequently with other great acoustic guitarists and/or singer-songwriters in the future who have that certain “mojo” that sets them apart from their peers. Great job with choosing the material to feature as well. That couldn’t have been easily done.

  2. Hey Tony enjoyed the feature on Colter Wall. i remember seeing him as an opener for Dead South when he was a teen. Respect how he’s stuck to his own sound and not tried to fit the commercial formula. Sticking to a Canadian theme how about a feature on Bruce Cockburn awesome song writer and master guitarist.

  3. Absolutely CANNOT WAIT for next week’s Acoustic Tuesday (Tapping). Percusive guitar is still a mystery to me, and I’m dying to know how it’s done. Thanks, Tony!

  4. I enjoy your show. I was wondering if you have ever heard of a guy by the name of Richard Blackhawk Kapusta. I notice in the song, ” Raven, I Don’t Think So, and Love isn”t Enough” he basically plays cords. Nothing fancy that even a beginner could do. Tony what are your thoughts on this?

  5. I’ve grown to look forward to each new Acoustic Tuesday. Throughly enjoyed this week featuring Colter Wall and his unique techniques as well as storytelling songs. He’s new to me so I will explore his catalog of songs. Like his style.

  6. Another great guitarist that does a one man band is named Scott H. Biram, he’s worth a listen. We just saw him play earlier this year at the Casbah in San Diego. Later in the show, it was interesting that the Casbah was mentioned during the clip of the memorial where the gentleman was given $200, He is 100% accurate about the planes coming in for a landing right there too!

  7. My favorite song by Coulter Wall is Happy Reunion.
    I would love to hear an episode about the amazing Ramblin Jack Elliott, soon to be 91 years old on August 1st.
