Artistry of Life: A conversation between Shane Parish and Wendy Eisenberg



Listen to these veritable masters of guitar in freewheeling conversation, ranging from guitar pedagogy to Anthony Braxton to Bruce Lee. Check below for a list of references to some of the things mentioned throughout this fascinating exchange.


Thanks to Wendy and Shane for their consideration of my transcription abilities. I am shitty at transcribing, so I just highlighted some of the concepts referenced throughout.
