Musician, therapist and zine editor Matt Baldwin joins us this week for an insightful talk about the creative process and more. Matt talks to us about his career as a guitarist and the influence Robbie Basho and John Fahey had on his playing. We also talk about his How to Play Guitar zine series, in which he shares some of his favorite tips, quotes, and life hacks. Finally, we discuss the ketamine-assisted psychotherapy he conducts in his Southern California office and learn about the critical role music plays in these sessions with his clients.
