On this second episode of Strings and Things, the eclectic guitarist and singer/songwriter Ann Klein re-strings her Telecaster, while our host Patrick Grant works on his surf green Jaguar. While the old guitar strings get replaced, Ann runs down the pros and cons of performing for live theatre and describes a couple of hairy moments onstage. We'll hear about her dog's hidden talents and then plug in the Vox amps for a live rendition of her song "Chocolate Pie".
On the premiere episode of Strings and Things, composer/guitarist Tony Geballe stops by to change the strings on his custom-built Nelson Fidelis TG1 electric guitar, while our host Patrick Grant re-strings his Rickenbacker 330. Tony tells us about his first guitar hero, and how he started playing in a Progressive Darkwave band. Then the Vox amps come out and they perform an excerpt from Tony's score for a stage version of Faust.

At some point every guitarist has to do it, so why not hang out with some friends and have fun while you're at it? This is Strings and Things, the show where musicians come by to change their strings, talk about all kinds of things and make some music. We hope you'll join us for the new Strings and Things podcast, a Peppergreen Production for Headstepper Media.
