A decade ago, Andy McKee was just another “guitar teacher from Topeka, Kansas.” Today, he’s considered one of the foremost fingerstyle guitarists in the world, with legions of devoted fans across the globe. Not long ago, McKee joined us in our studios and knocked out a pair of delightful tunes–“Away” and “The Reason”– that vividly showcase his amazing technique. We also had a chance to speak with the YouTube sensation about a variety of topics, including his stunning Greenfield guitars (and harp guitar), his deep connection to instrumental music, his influences (especially Preston Reed), his stage setup, and his most famous fan, Prince.
