Amps, Fret Wires, and Touring Friends

It's funny that an episode all about tech has some technical difficulties of its own. On this week's Live Lesson the guys test out a different streaming system which causes some intermittent audio/video issues. Nevertheless, the guys field a variety of questions, most of which center around accessories. They talk about various amplifies, pedals, and cables. Aldrine also talks a bit about fretboards and well dressed fret wires. They wrap up the lesson by sharing some of their favorite musicians to tour with.
