9-42 meets Rob Chapman & Rabea Massaad

The one where 9-42 meets Rob Chapman & Rabea Massaad. The final interview(s) recorded in the 'Cloakroom Sessions' back at The Guitar Show earlier this year.

Rob is a guitarist, content creator and the founder and co-owner of Chapman Guitars. He is widely credited as being one of the first guitarists in the UK to establish himself on Youtube, initially with his own instructional videos and then with his collaboration with Lee Anderton. He is the lead singer and a guitarist for the band Dorje along with other projects Clockwork Wolf & Co and Monkey Lord.

Rabea is the lead guitarist for Dorje and also performs in the band Toska. He has a successful YouTube channel and is a designer for both Chapman Guitars & Victory Amplifiers.

We caught up with both and discussed the journeys that had brought them both to this point, and the people that had influenced them along the way.

About the Podcast

9-42
The Guitar Show Podcast
9-42 is the podcast from the team behind The Guitar Show, the UK's biggest annual guitar event.

I'm Jason, and when I am not co-hosting this podcast I am trying to organise the next Guitar Show. The other co-host is Ant, we've known each other for years and he's the fella that pressured me in to doing this.

Each episode we will endeavour to bring you the stories behind the gear, to talk to the artists, the influencers and the manufacturers that keep us playing and loving the guitar.

I have been tinkering with audio since my mid-teens, recording songs & producing content for friends.

Post university I embraced the world of retail, firstly in supermarkets and later in & around the music instrument industry.

After 20 years or so, I took a sideways step into podcasting and began a venture called ashortstories, which helps in the development & production of podcasts for anyone that has a story to tell.
