Watch the Tallest Man on Earth Perform Two Tracks for WFUV


Tallest Man on Earth GretschBefore his latest tour to support latest album Dark Bird is Home, Kristian Mattson – a.k.a. the Tallest Man on Earth – was used to performing on stage by himself.

But lately, he’s been backed by a full band for his concerts, adding lush layers to his beautifully arranged songs.

That sound was on display during a shoot for WFUV in New York City’s legendary Electric Lady Studios. With his bandmates supporting him, Mattson donned a G6122-12 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman 12-String guitar and treated an intimate crowd to the Dark Bird single “Sagres” and a cover of “If I Could Only Fly,” which was written by Blaze Foley.

GAK Music Demos the Gretsch G136T Falcon in Limited Crème de Marine


GAK Music Gretsch

Gretsch Product Education Specialist Damon Chivers recently sat down with a representative from GAK Music to run through a Gretsch G136T Falcon in a limited-edition Crème de Marine finish.

“It’s a unique-sounding thing. The Gretsch guitars, nothing sounds like them,” said Chivers. “The big hollow body, the Filter’trons and the Bigsby all affect the tone, and it’s something utterly unique. You cannot get these sounds out of any other guitar.”

The color of this guitar is also stunning, as the Crème de Marine comes across in a soft mint green that is both visually striking and elegant.
