Alex Skolnick: and herman li joining guitar workshop, full details


The National Guitar Workshop is proud to confirm that Herman Li from Dragonforce and Testament/Trans Siberian Orchestra guitarist Alex Skolnick will be joining us this year.

Litchfield, CT—March 10, 2009 – The National Guitar workshop is excited to feature Herman Li at our Purchase, NY campus and Alex Skolnick at our McLean, VA campus.

Download our 2009 course catalog at www.guitarworkshop.com for more information.

Herman will appear to give a special clinic at our Rock Summit in Purchase, NY during July 19-24. In the last few years, Herman has established himself as one of the most recognized and influential guitarists of the new generation. Accolades started to pour in; starting with the 2005 'Best Shredder' award at the annual Metal Hammer Golden Gods. Herman also won four categories in Guitar World's 2007 Readers Poll for 'Best New Talent' (winning by 70%), 'Best Metal', 'Best Riff' and 'Best Shredders'. He also won 'Best Guitar Solo' for ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ in Total Guitar's readers' poll in 2007, as well as numerous other polls in printed and online press around the world. Outside of DragonForce, Herman has been invited to perform with guitar legends such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Paul Gilbert, just to name a few.

Between intensive world tours with DragonForce, Herman found time to write a monthly guitar column in UK's Total Guitar magazine as well as becoming involved in guitar clinics around the world. Always continuing to evolve as a guitar player, Herman likes to understand his instrument as much as possible. He is heavily involved in electric guitar development, working on new ideas to improve the instrument as much as possible. After 3 years of hard work, and dedication, the result is the Ibanez E-Gen guitar, Herman’s signature model.

In 2009, Herman will be appearing at a limited number of special clinics and exclusive events to help showcase his own approach to the instrument and continue to inspire other guitarists worldwide.

Alex will appear at our Rock Summit in McLean, VA during the week of June 27th through July 2nd. At age sixteen, Alex tried out for a local band called Legacy. Shortly after graduating from high school, he found himself recording his first album with the group, who by this time had changed their name to Testament. What followed were five albums and countless tours with, among others, Megadeth, Slayer, Judas Priest, and White Zombie. Alex received critical acclaim for his lead guitar work, which had been inspired by heroes such as Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads, ranking high in many guitar magazine polls, often as 'Best Thrash Guitarist' and 'Most Underrated Guitarist.'
