Ben Harper

Our artist featured in this outing walks in many worlds.

This Californian of African, Cherokee, and Russian-Lithuanion Jewish origins has ideas of his own on how to hold (and play) the guitar.

In this article from the Japan Times, Ben Harper talks about the importance of musical roots. 

For Aston Martin magazine, he opens up about those who inspired him musically – Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley. And his mom. 

And in this November article from Acoustic Guitar Magazine, he describes his latest instrumental project, thanks to the beckoning sonics of a Monteleone lap steel guitar.

That same issue offers a Harper lesson on playing a “Better Way.”

And in case you missed it. Here’s the reason for all the fuss.
