This week on Eric Krasno Plus One, Kraz talks with guitarist Charlie Hunter, who’s one-of-a-kind approach to the instrument has helped revolutionize it. He plays 7 and 8-string guitars, oftentimes playing chords, melodies, and basslines simultaneously, which he and Kraz discuss in the episode. Hunter has played in several highly respected groups, but most notably Garage a Trois, which he co-founded in 1998. He also played on D’Angelo’s legendary Voodoo album, which has featured several other Plus One guests to date.

In this conversation, Kraz and Hunter dive into Hunter’s start as a professional musician when he was busking in Europe, how he started playing 7 and 8-string guitars, changes in his interpretation of the musical language as he’s gotten older, and much more. Charlie Hunter is an incredibly inventive musician with a plethora of knowledge to offer listeners, and this conversation with Kraz offers a chance to understand his approach, and to be immersed in his musical thought process.
