With our 46th issue, the Fretboard Journal begins its 15th anniversary year the only way we know how: By celebrating some of the best-and-brightest figures in the world of fretted instruments and music-making. From Rosanne Cash and John Leventhal (splitting cover duties with a lengthy interview on songwriting, production and gear), to tributes on blues great Hubert Sumlin, folk hero Linda Waterfall and all points in-between. We also sit down with Mark O'Connor to celebrate his return to flatpicking guitar, chat with acclaimed Maui-based luthier Steve Grimes, ask Christopher Paul Stelling about his new, Ben Harper-produced album, and even take a trip to India to visit one of world's most far-flung bluegrass groups. As always, we've crammed a lot into this 128 page keepsake issue; it's easily one of our favorite editions to date.
