Portland, Oregon, bluegrass guitarist Scott Law talks about how he got started playing the acoustic guitar, and performs his original song, “Can’t Lie Awake.”

Filmed at our Richmond, California, studios, Law spoke about why he decided to play acoustic, as well as his longstanding relationship with Santa Cruz Guitar Company. Best of all, however, is Law’s stirring performance.


Law will be the subject of a feature article in the July issue of Acoustic Guitar magazine, which will also feature a transcription of his original tune “Bells of Unity.”

Both of those Law originals are featured on his fantastic 2013 album Black Mountain.
