The music of Mick Barr is completely unique. It is complex and very personal and has had a profound effect and influence on me since my first encounter with it in 2005. Mick and I run in a lot of the same circles but before this talk we had never spoken to one another. Over a Chemex of Heart Stereo and some exquisite treats from the Doughnut Plant, Mick and I sat down to get to know one another and discuss, among other things, Metallica, personal approach to amping one's guitar, improvisation and how to write for classical instruments. It's a good talk with a good dude.
