I'm starting to plan for my trip to Chile and Brazil next month, and that means making a suitcase-sized pedalboard. Here is my first attempt (above.) I tested it out with some jamming, and everything sounded great... and looked good too. I didn't plan on this particular color combination, but somehow it reminds me of a bowl of "Spree" candy.

And don't worry, I'll remember to change my power supply to 230v before I go.

paul gilbert in chile

This April, I'll be traveling to Chile and Brazil for some guitar clinics. I'm still waiting for the complete list of Brazil clinics, but there is only one clinic in Chile, so I can go ahead and announce that one.

Here is the official site (in Spanish) http://www.guitarfest.cl/

I had fun cutting myself out in Photoshop, and combining the photo with the Chilean flag. I'm looking forward to seabass and... rock!

Thank you,

Paul

I was answering some Video Exchanges a couple weeks ago, and I stepped away from my computer for a moment. When I came back, I found that the video that I was watching had stopped right here (see above.) I thought to myself, "Man, Steve is just doing it right." Let me just take this moment to say the same to all of you, here are the school. You are all doing it right. Thanks for bringing your guitar and rocking out. The world is a better place for it.

Thank you,

Paul

how to sing better - paul gilbert with jeannie deva

One of the benefits to being an ArtistWorks instructor is that you're connected to an elite roster of experts in their respective genres. While Paul Gilbert is the master when it comes to rock guitar, Jeannie Deva is the master when it comes to learning how to sing better. The two instructors met each other recently at NAMM and hit it off, so much so that Paul ended up scheduling a session with Jeannie. We caught up with Paul afterwards to see how it went:

ArtistWorks: What inspired you to seek out a vocal lesson?

Paul Gilbert: Jeannie and I did some jamming together at the NAMM show, and her singing was amazing. She is a master of her instrument, and also a great teacher… I have seen some of her ArtistWorks vocal lessons, and I wondered what kind of doors she could open for my own singing.
