Frank Gambale: “I am filming a lot of video for a new website" from

Frank Gambale
His instructional techniques are now used in many schools throughout the world. Despite all the amazing chops, Frank doesn't get to practice his beloved instrument as much as he’d like. But that’s because he’s busy in other ways. He explains: “I don’t practise like I used to mostly because I enjoy composing more these days. I still will spend several hours a day practising to prepare for a tour, however. I do enjoy imparting my knowledge to keen students.

“I am filming a lot of video for a new website which will be music and guitar lessons for all levels. I have a lot of material to present from compositions courses, to harmony and theory and sweep picking and even a blues course.

“It’s coming soon.”

Su mi Lee: Alex Hutchings and Guthrie Govan, find out more from Shreddelicious

Su mi Lee
[Shreddelicious] We caught up with another super young guitar player Su mi Lee for a quick Shreddelicious interview. The amazing Su mi Lee is based in Daegu, in South Korea. Su mi Lee is a big fan of the modern fusion players like Guthrie Govan and Alex Hutchings... this is what she had to say...

[Shreddelicious] 1 When did you start playing guitar?

[Su mi Lee] I started to learn to play guitar when I was just 15 years of age. Before then, I'd not played any other musical instrument, so the guitar was my first musical instrument.

Netanel Yakobovich: Octopusing guitar ,Jeff Healey technique extrapolated

No not this cute fellow!

Just renewing a old technique by Jeff Healey that I had no clue of his existence when I made those videos .  Please watch in 720p. I named the technique Octopusing because the shape that's formed from pressing the fingers looked like an octopus to me. This is how mister fantastic would have played the guitar if he played. Gear : cheap , Fender Squier and Nux mighty 50

The Master Guitar Tour will be rolling into a town near you soon, check this website and our FB page to keep updated with news about bookings, appearances and other cool stuff.

Ben Woods, Thomas Zwijsen & Glenn Roth are teaming up to take their Master Guitar Tour on the road in 2014.

Rolling In The Deep - Master Guitar Tour (Roth/Zwijsen/Woods)

The players

One the most talented, prolific, and sought after
Flamenco guitarists in the United States today. Benjamin is best known for single-handedly creating a new genre: Flamenco and Metal, by developing new guitar techniques and arrangements for his groups FLAMETAL and HEAVY MELLOW to the acclaim of fans and guitar enthusiasts around the world.

Dutch guitarist Thomas Zwijsen is best known for his arrangements of rock hits for classical solo guitar. After getting over 3 million views on YouTube, Thomas released his Nylon Maiden album on January the 8th. The album contains 11 unique arrangements of Iron Maiden tracks arranged for classical guitar. One of the special guests featured on the album is former Iron Maiden frontman Blaze Bayley. To support the worldwide release of this album, Thomas is touring in Europe, Asia, The Middle East, South America and Australia, playing over 200 concerts in less than 2 years.

Glenn Roth is not your typical commuter from Connecticut. Instead of a briefcase, he carries a gig bag. His workspace is the vaulted splendor of Grand Central Terminal or the tunnels and platforms of the New York City subway system. A literal “underground” sensation. Glenn is a fingerstyle guitarist, his thumb riding the bassline and the melody driving all. His compositions suggest multiple guitars, but it’s really just one guy, ten flying fingers, one instrument.
