I must admit, I’m going through a Paul Gilbert phase. My friend, Pierce introduced me to him and now I feel like I’ve been deprived my entire life… Gilbert is the best thing I’ve seen on youtube and ever since I watched him shred on an acoustic bass, I’ve been mesmerized by his knowledge and talent. In fact, there are many nights when I stay up late watching every Paul Gilbert video that youtube “recommends” me.
I rarely listen to Metal but no one gets me stoked on guitar the way he does. If this is your first time hearing about this humble shredding mastermind, I hope he has the same impact on you. And for my self-taught guitar friends, he’s a wonderful teacher as well–I recommend all his youtube videos.
