Guthrie Govan is regarded by many as the best guitarist there is, and perhaps has ever been. His improvisation, technical ability and understanding of complex theory is second to very few, if indeed anyone at all. Guthrie has been playing guitar for as long as he can remember, and began gigging at the age of just five. His debut album Erotic Cakes brought him critical acclaim, and his sessions in the JTC studios arguably laid the path for us today! His career has taken him to all manner of places and if you ever wanted proof of his abilities, just take one look at his Odd Time Licks Collection. Such mastery of the guitar has also led him to work with fellow virtuosos in Bryan Beller and Marco Minemann for The Aristocrats. Guthrie is a man who is always pushing the boundaries of what is possible with a guitar and has influenced all manner of other guitarists to try and do the same.
