Formerly an exclusive fan of a '61 Harmony Jupiter and Fender Champ, Glaspy explains the thought process behind her recent switch to a Danocaster and a Deluxe Reverb.

While she recorded most of her debut, Emotions and Math, on a Harmony Jupiter Stratotone, Glaspy is now touring with this Danocaster T-style that is on an open-ended loan from boyfriend Julian Lage. She doesn’t tour with a backup and prefers to use D’Addario strings (.011–.049) and D’Addario 1.25 mm extra heavy picks.

So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
