770 Barry Green on thinking ahead
Barry Green is one of the most prolific and creative artists I’ve even spent time with. He has appeared on the podcast multiple times over the years, and he and I co-organized the International Online Bass Summit during the spring and summer of 2020.
In today’s episode, we catch up on all sorts of projects that Barry has been working on, including his incredible Stringersize program and his The Art of a Note article. We also dig into how he approaches projects in general, new ideas he has been developing, and much more. Enjoy!
