Interview with Dave Martone

It was quite the day when I posted for the first time in the Player’s Pick Podcast Facebook group (thanks Chrys!), and I was asked by a gentleman called Gareth about Frock Picks. He told me that the only player he’d ever seen using them was one Dave Martone, a Canadian guitarist of some serious repute.

With a complete lack of information on Frock on the internet, I decided to reach out to Dave and see if he fancied giving me a bit of information on these, and following his unexpected video response, one thing led to another and he agreed to this interview. Big thanks to Dave for his time, his perseverance with the technical problems, and for his candour, which was refreshing.

Check out Dave’s extensive work with the likes of Satriani, Jennifer Batten, Stu Hamm, Billy Sheehan and more at
