      If you're looking for some contemporary rockin' country music, Brooklyn, New York isn't the first place you'd think to look. The Defibulators are about to change that perception. They come from all over, but formed in Brooklyn back in 2011. They played a raucous track, Holy Roller, off of their new album Debt'll Get'em at The Fretboard Journal offices at 10 in the morning. It was very impressive on their part after a show the night before and definitely set a nice tone for the day.

In our next video, he’ll walk us through the three 1959 guitars in the background, including his 1959 Gibson ‘Burst on the far right. The Fretboard Journal is doing a big feature on McCready, out in early 2014. Check us out at www.fretboardjournal.com.

            For one school year in the early '60s, Beach Boy Al Jardine attended Ferris State University in Michigan, with aspirations to become a pharmacist. As Jardine tells photographer/videographer Richard Newman, it was during that fateful year that -- inspired by the sounds of the Kingston Trio -- he drove to Chicago and purchased this Gretsch Broadkaster banjo. Jardine would use this instrument on numerous solo and Beach Boys recordings. He still cherishes it at his Big Sur, California home. Al Jardine is the subject of a lengthy Fretboard Journal interview and profile in the Fretboard Journal #30. To subscribe, simply go here: http://www.fretboardjournal.com/subscribe

                Fredericksburg, Virginia’s Daniel Bachman spent much of his youth playing Dock Boggs-style banjo. It’s hard to believe but the young musician took up the guitar just five years ago. Heavily influenced by fingerstyle virtuosos such as Jack Rose, Leo Kottke, John Fahey and Robbie Basho, Bachman has already released three full-length albums. Here, he performs “Honeysuckle Reel” at the Fretboard Journal offices on his Guild D-55. “It starts with a lick,” Bachman says of his songwriting. “And then I just work on it, just play in the tuning around that and build it until it’s like it should be.”
