Rhett Foster // Artist Interview

Posted by Joshua Koterba on

Where do you play guitar?
Mostly in church. Occasionally, I'll hit up an open mic night and jam a little.

What gear do you use and what guitar have you been playing the most lately?
Gear-wise, I use anything I can get my hands on! Acoustic is my favorite, and I saved up for a long time to get a really good one, but I’ve found lately, the demand for acoustic players is slim to none. Nowadays, I primarily play electric guitar. I have a Gretsch Electromatic G5422t and I'm madly in love with it! I switched out the stock bridge with a rolling bridge and I stay in tune no matter how much I mess with that Bigsby. My swells have never been so tasty!

How long have you been playing guitar?
Going on 5 years now!

What made you start playing guitar?
My mom! Ha! we took lessons together for a couple months and we got burned out real quick. I picked it back up a couple years later, taught myself the basics and I've been playing since.

How do you take your coffee? If not coffee what is your drink of choice?
Black & strong! Occasionally I'll cheat and put a dab of honey in there if I'm feelin' wild.

What are your main influences?
I'm in an internship right now that is majorly impacting my life as far as calling and my next step for my life goes. I'm being mentored by a super solid dude who's teaching me the essentials for leading people in music and getting them to worship. I'm growing so much being a part of this program.

What have you been listening to lately?
I'm a sucker for classic rock n roll! Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Boston, and Dire straits are staples in my music tastes. Lately I've been listening to some more modern/indie stuff. Arctic monkeys, the Killers, the Classic Crime and Kings of Leon are really good bands I'm enjoying.

What Gear Supply Products do you use?
Anything I can get my hands on! Months ago I started off with the Medium+ 10-52 Electric Strings. I loved those so I tried the patch cables, and wired my whole board up with them. When I realized how good those were, I started snatching up anything and everything I could. Love the products!

What was your first guitar pedal?
An old phaser my grandmother gave me. I think it was an old digitech or something.

Whats the best deal you've ever gotten on a piece of gear?
One time I snagged an Eventide H9 Max on eBay for $350. That was pretty righteous!

Whats your guilty pleasure?
Oh man. Occasionally, I'll snag me a Blue Moon and kick back with a premium cigar with the amigos. Good brews, good 'gars and good fellowship is hard to beat.
