Paul Yandell and Wanda's Guitar
Not too long ago, Paul Yandell and I had lunch in Nashville and Paul brought along something I considered a special treat,
a busted up old 3/4 sized guitar. He explained that the guitar
belonged to Wanda Gunn, a guitar teacher who lived near Paul in Kentucky when he
was growing up. "She used that guitar to teach me alot" says
Paul. "She was a great teacher and a great lady, and lived to be 103 years
old. My first Guitar was a Stella, but I really treasure having Wanda's guitar hanging on my wall."
Paul's current CD, "Forever Chet" is available online at Jerry Reed's website. To read more about Paul and his career as Chet's sideman for over 20 years, click here.
