We're really sorry this video is in such bad resolution.
We've been through a comedic five-day exchange with YouTube where they can't solve the problem and we can't reupload the video.
Computer. Says. No.
Sorry Chris, sorry to everyone watching.
In this episode we are delighted to welcome the super talented, humorous and humble Chris Buck to the show. Chris is a wonderful guitar player from South Wales, UK, whose #1 music project is his band, Buck & Evans. http://www.buckandevans.com/
Chris takes us through his pedalboard that’s most notable for the sheer number of similar-ish overdrives on there! We get an insight into his playing style and technique not to mention a cheeky little Strat/Strat/Strat/Silver Sky comparison.
Massive thanks to Chris for taking the time to come and hang at Schwangri-La. Please check him out on all the usual social meedja!
