If it has anything to do with the guitar, Arlen Roth has embraced it. As a solo artist, as a sideman to legendary rock and folk performers, as a guitar designer, as a magazine columnist and teacher, Arlen has left his impact on more than one generation of guitar players. On his way to his home on Martha's Vineyard, Arlen stopped by our studio and spoke with Steve Junker.
Arlen Roth writes a regular blog on guitar playing. He’s at work on an autobiography, and a children’s book in collaboration with Martha’s Vineyard illustrator Lane Gregory.
