Paul Simon on Howard Stern

Interesting Paul Simon chat with Howard Stern recently.

I liked Paul Simon’s take on being a good guitarist with the caveat that ’ The guitar is like the universe you can never come to the end of what you can learn from it.’


Thanks for sharing, Alan. That was intersting. And I like the picking pattern :smiley:.

H Stern is all about himself, but here at least he got Paul Simon to open up a bit. Loved the alternating bass thumb picking, and the way he used his other fingers to create a great sound. Still remember going to see movie The Graduate with Dustin Hofman…what a great sound track from Simon and Garfunkel…

If you can Travis pick you can make a lot of 3 and 4 chord songs sound a lot nicer or more sophisticated. It’s sounds great even when it’s played significantly slower.
