6 Guitars by Chase Padgett and Jay Hopkins
A pitch perfect blend of music, comedy and characters. Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he becomes six different guitar players – each with their own distinct voice, views and musical style, from a 19 year old rock prodigy to an 87 year old blues man.

As each character dives deeper into their hilarious takes on music and life, we see that the barriers of music aren't as concrete as we think.
