Dave B, is beavering away to bring you interview after interview with top player after top player...this time Jopi gets the treatment in this quality interview!

Jopi says:
Well, nowadays I’m always playing, recording, and sometimes practising. But when I was younger the most important thing in my life was playing the guitar, so I spent the whole day doing it. Now I have more responsibilities, and things more interesting to do than practising scales all day! But I do feel really lucky to be working as a musician professionally. I mean my job is to PLAY GUITAR… that’s incredible!
