Three outstanding guitarists in their own right coming together to create a memorable evening of virtuoso guitar music, including some inspired jamming together.


GB3 - Voyager (Multi cam)



Sounds familiar? The G3 guitar evening format was established by the like of Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson and, long before them, acoustic virtuosos McLaughlin, Di Meola and de Lucia rocked out together on a Friday Night in San Francisco.

GB3 - Toccata and Fugue in D Minor (Multi cam)


So, what’s different about GB3?




How about combining epic, emotive, symphonic rock music with reinterpretations of well loved classical pieces played with unbelievable dexterity and traditional Celtic reels, jigs and airs translated into powerful electric guitar explorations? Throw in some atmospheric soundscapes, virtuoso solo piano, loopstation jamming on bouzouki, plus one of the most accomplished, jaw dropping solo bassists on the planet (the WHOLE of Bohemian Rhapsody on solo bass?!) and you begin to get the picture.

GB3 - America (Multi cam)


Not just for guitar geeks; a GB3 concert is an engaging, compelling musical experience for anyone who loves music that challenges the usual stylistic boundaries. Virtuosic, yes. But also inspiring, entertaining, moving and uplifting

GB3 - Angel Of God (Multi cam)



GB3 - three great guitarists from the UK plus one astonishing bassist. Go and see them - you won’t be sorry.

Shuggie Otis: R&B Guitar Legend Hits The Road For An Extended US Summer Tour



Los Angeles, CA - After the recent release of his first-ever live album, Live In Williamsburg (available on CD, vinyl and DVD), R&B legend Shuggie Otis is once again bringing his talents to the stage for a 20+ date, coast-to-coast tour starting July 5th. Nobody brings as much soul, style, and swagger to a live performance as Shug with his signature red Gibson SG, and fans who have followed this multi-talented performer’s tumultuous career know that a Shuggie Otis concert is not an event to be missed. Whether it be the fabulous grooves of “Inspiration Information” or the funkdafied rhythm of the all-time classic “Strawberry Letter 23,” Shuggie’s songs have a magical sway over audiences, both young and old, guaranteed to get them on their feet and dancing in the aisles!

The son of renowned bandleader and musician Johnny Otis, Shuggie Otis began his incredible career at the tender age of 15, playing as a session guitarist alongside Al Kooper before releasing his first solo album Here Comes Shuggie Otis in 1970. Already being hailed as a uniquely skillful guitarist, Shuggie proved his mettle as a songwriter the following year with the hit single “Strawberry Letter 23” from his second solo album. Now one of the most sampled songs in all of modern music, “Strawberry Letter 23” became an even bigger smash when The Brothers Johnson recorded their version in 1977 (produced by Quincy Jones). After the release of his third album Inspiration Information failed to meet outsized expectations, Shuggie seemed to retire permanently from music. But, thankfully, he reemerged in 2013 with a deluxe reissue of Inspiration Information that included a new album of previously unreleased recordings called Wings Of Love. Since then, Shuggie has returned to the stage and been re-embraced by an adoring public who have waited a long time and never lost faith!

Guitar Lessons with Tom Quayle . Available as a DVD, download or instant stream fromhttp://bit.ly/MODERN_LEGATO_LESSON­S


The term "modern legato" is hardly a new term, in fact, players like Brett Garsed have been turning heads with this fresh, metronomic approach to legato for the best part of 30 years.

There is no question though, that Tom Quayle is an absolute master of the technique, not just from an application perspective, but also as a teacher.

In this course, Tom will walk you through 51 intense modern legato licks that will take you from fleet fingered amateur to fretboard wizard. It's not an easy journey, but it will be the most rewarding one you take this year!
