Interview special 1 – MJ Murphy

Guitar guru at work

I was delighted that I managed to speak to Mike Murphy via Skype recently. Mike is a teacher, all-round guitar expert, Yes fan and top listener of the Yes Music Podcast.

Mike writes engaging, expert, guitar-related blog posts at www.twilightguitar.wordpress.com

Who better, then, to help us understand the styles and approaches of the three Yes guitarists, Peter Banks, Steve Howe and Trevor Rabin?

I hope you enjoy the first Yes Music Podcast interview special – there are plenty more to come.

If you have a Yes story you’d like to share, please get in touch – I’d be more than happy to speak to you via Skype!
