Three days of guitar highlights from Chicago’s world-renowned festival.
Jamestown Revival’s Jonathan Clay
Co-founding member Jonathan Clay bounced back and forth from lap steel to his flattop during the band’s afternoon set. Clay on his Martin: “I got that OM-35 about 12 years ago and I’ve played it so much now that there’s almost a hole worn through the soundboard. The more I’ve played it, the more it opens up and sounds better—the past three to four years it seems like this guitar has really come to life. This particular model wasn't really anything I intentionally decided on. We just crossed paths, and there was magic there.”
