There is a romance to uncertain times. In the undulations and valleys that we experience in life we are given an opportunity to learn new ways to do things. Much like the relationship between a master and his student, experiences offer us an opportunity to see things from a different angle. 

This episode isnt about making guitars, per se, but about making a dream come true….about finding a muse and following it to completion. We'll be talking with Tom Thiel, an entrepreneur who spent his life in pursuit of a craft. He has built over 500 instruments. Built a sound company. He knows that by trial and error one learns things, masters them. This man creates 'serious wood products.'

We'll also meet a piece of wood called DragonTongue. It's worth a listen for those who wish to master a talent.

Music from the episode comes from none other than the amazing Reverend Freakchild. His new album, called The Bodhisattva Blues, can be pre-ordered beginning April 1, 2020 right here:
