Nick Reinhart: Willie Wonka of Guitar

If there is a young guitarist you captures the Guitar Moderne ethos perfectly it is Nick Reinhart. In his work with Tera Melos and with Nels Cline in Big Walnuts Yonder he exhibits a spirit of musical experimentation and pushes the guitar’s sonic potential as far as it will go, with virtuosic technique and wry humor. Premier Guitar caught up with him when he came through Nashville and did an extensive rig rundown, revealing his fan bestowed nickname (no pun intended). Reinhart also reveals one of his sonic secrets. Spoiler alert: Superglue.

  1. I love how Chris Keys, the interviewer, just bursts out laughing a couple times during the interview because of Nick’s sounds and playing. Nick has fun and doesn’t take himself too seriously. Chris had fun doing this, too, as an added bonus. This was really fun to watch.
