Guitars 101: Stratocaster, Telecaster, Martin, Taylor…and more!

Hey everyone! 

For this week’s video, I was fortunate to interview a local guitar enthusiast about his collection. We talk about Charles’ interest in guitars, advice for beginners, types of guitars, and even proper maintenance. 

I am a complete newbie when it comes to guitars (that is, apart from what I’d googled beforehand), so it was a pleasure to chat with someone so passionate about them.
