Jay Foreman Interview

This week I’m really pleased to present this interview with musical comedian and YouTuber Jay Foreman. Jay is known for his brand of “silly educational videos”.

In this interview we discuss Jay’s first musical experiences as a child; what led him to perform music and how this led to his first YouTube uploads; how YouTube has changed over time; his writing process and more.

Here’s Jay’s YouTube Channel which features original music, Map Men and everything else we mention in the interview.

You can also listen to this interview as a podcast – check out ep4 of the LTGuitarist podcast:
