A semi-recent political campaign perpetuated the idea of "Joe Six-Pack" as an emblem of the average American "joe". The podcast Six String Bliss embodies two average American "Joe Six-String"'s, geeking out about guitar gear, their favorite guitarists, and random non guitar related banter.
Hosts Pipes and PT have all the goofy, homespun, non-pretentios charm of a "Wayne and Garth" of the guitar world. They bring along a cast of quirky characters including Pappy, the Searcy's, and others in what reminds me of a guitar-centric version of "Northern Exposure". I love that they talk about guitar with the same wide-eyed enthusiasm as we all did as youngsters, before becoming ego-guarding and jaded. Nobody on this podcast is out to prove that they know more than you, or that they can out-shred one another in a 'head cutting' session......just friends, guitars, and an occasional beer being popped open in the background.
It might not add up on paper, but the magically mundane chemistry of Six String Bliss makes for my favorite podcast.
