Episode 36 – Jazz Guitarist Tom Lippincott

Tom Lippincott is a highly respected professional guitarist based in Florida, USA. This interview was meant to be broad ranging, however, Tom’s eight string guitar (yes you read that correctly) took up almost the entire show!

One thing that non-musicians should understand is that the world is full of great musicians, however, very few can actually claim to make a living from predominantly playing music. This podcast interview is with one such musician Tom Lippincott.

Tom is an incredibly accomplished musician who also teaches guitar. Just take a look at one of his many Youtube video lessons (link below) and you’ll immediately be struck by his knowledge and ability to clearly communicate his message.

As the headline notes, this interview didn’t get much past Tom’s eight string guitar but we are hopeful that we can talk with Tom again in the near future as there is a lot more to discuss!


Simply say “Alexa, open G. M. I. Guitar Music Institute” or “Alexa, start G. M. I. Guitar Music Institute” and you’ll immediately be taken to the GMI podcast.
