I always forget to ask but never knew who this one guy was with them live and thought it was you…also …

More than just playing

Every Monday we get an amazing podcast with great insight to where the player is coming from. The last one I listened to with Ryan “Fluff” Bruce was really eye opening for me. Just being able to see where someone is at given their age and how it does not really matter as long as you are putting you…

Great interviews every week

The guys do a great job chatting with the guest and it’s always worth the listen. 👍

Love it.

Fantastic, informative and easy to listen to.

Amazing show

I absolutely love this podcast, I love how the conversations are a bit more free flowing and not strictly dedicated to gear, technique, etc. It makes it feel less like a formal interview and more like im listening in on a good conversation. Another thing I love is that I’ve learned something new th…

More than just gear talk

I’ve always loved interviews that dig into the philosophy of the artists and spent time with them as people, This podcast does both, everybody needs a 2 1/2 interview with the Periphery guys, And I’m not even a guitarist.

Amazing Insight into Your Favorite Guitarists/Artists Personalities and Creative Processes

I just joined RiffHard a month ago. After listening to the podcast for a while and being a URM member for over a year I thought it would be a good time to join and the site has been awesome with tons of great exercises and a really positive community on Facebook. This podcast is really great to lea…

The keys to success

Success as a musician is so much more than just practicing music. The business, communication, relationships, and vision can’t be learned from tabs and practice. This podcast is a treasure trove of information from guitarists who have actually made it. If you’re serious about your craft, then you n…

THE BEST Metal/Rock Guitarist Show!

After having been a long term fan of the type of content on the URM Podcast (hosted by Eyal, the co-host here) and the type of insightful conversation, when I discovered this podcast I immediately knew it was for me and have been consistently blown away since. Hearing true stories, philosophical pr…


Very awesome


Between The Riffhard Podcast and URM, I don’t have any time for other ones nor need to venture out. Always entertaining. Edited greatly and they are super good at engaging the guest. Would recommend to anyone that would like to know more about the amazing artists we listen to.

Very Educating

I can’t say enough good things about this podcast. I am an aspiring guitarist at the beginner-intermediate level, and every episode is full of information about playing, being in a band, equipment, pretty much anything and everything you need to know. Their guests are some of my personal favorite g…

Poignant and informative

These gents are class acts and their peers and the pinnacle of music as we know it. It’s moved to my top spot!

As important as you can imagine

Eyal and Browne are incredible hosts and professionals. The podcast does not focus on a singular topic every time, but is structured and organized well enough that it doesn’t ever feel like you’re listening to rambling. Eyal and Browne always seem to make their guests feel at home and bring out the…

Outstanding Podcast

This is such a great podcast. Eyal and John are great interviewers and the quality of guests is outstanding. Well done.

This is the best!

Eyal and John are great and I’ve been a fan/student of theirs for a while now, but the guests they have on and the subjects the discuss are so helpful to me on many levels. It really helps me to process what I am going through on my own journey as an artist. Thanks guys! Keep it coming!!!

Great podcast!

Nice guys giving a great behind the scenes account of how the music is made. Love it!

Great guitar podcast


Great pod. Even with three people they don’t talk over each other and the convos are very insightful

great podcast

i love it

Great conversations!

I’m a few episodes into this podcast, and I’m really glad I discovered it. Conversations are wide ranging, very interesting, and about much more than just playing the guitar, even though music is the lens through which they are focused. In the future I hope we’ll hear from more voices from outsid…


Been a metal guitarists for about 10 years, never thought there would be a metal podcasts for guitarists and to also be this good. This is a big deal, keep it going.


This is everything I want to listen to! Topics are relatable and I struggle with many of the topics discussed obviously not at the same level but it’s incredibly interesting! I am actually excited to listen to a podcast and want to hear what all of these phenomenal players have to say. Great job I …

Guitarists Unite!

All the guitars, all the time!


This is the podcast I’ve been waiting for.
