Wilco Guitarist Nels Cline Talks Shop

Cline is of course lead guitarist of the Grammy-Award winning Chicago alternative rock band Wilco. Critics have called Cline “one of the best guitarists of any genre” and his distinctive “Avant Romantic” style incorporates exciting jazz, rock, country and experimental elements.


Cline has performed on over 150 albums and in 2007 was selected by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the “Top 20 New Guitar Gods.” In this great video, he shows us some of his great Fender Jaguars and Jazzmasters, discusses his influences, how his style has changed over the years, and his use of effects.
