Dean Ween


We recently drove out to New Hope, Pennsylvania to hang out with Dean Ween (né Michael Melchiondo, Jr), who co-founded avant-stoner royalty act Ween back in 1984. In case you weren't a nerd in high school, Ween was pretty much the biggest in-joke in alt rock history. What set them apart was the fact that they shredded way harder than anyone else while remaining one of the weirdest, most playful band of all time. Our buddy Matt Sweeney set up shop in Dean's sweltering shed to learn some timeless lessons about the guitar, including whether it's better to wear it above or below your genitals.
Featuring the premiere of the new summer jam, "Dickey Betts."
Guitar Moves, hosted by Matt Sweeney, is a show where the viewer gets an opportunity to sit in on a private, interesting, and hilarious conversation about guitars, music, life, and craft. During the season, Sweeney and his guests play through licks, riffs, and solos that inform their style, influence their playing, and define their sound. 
Presented in partnership with XL Strings by D'Addario and Noisey.
