This is one for those who wish to be terrified and/or inspired in equal measures!

Some may not know about Mr Guthrie Govan, arguably one of the world’s most incredible and also one of the most (incredibly humble) guitar players.

This clip emphasises his absolute ease with the instrument and his ability to move effortlessly between different styles of music. Whilst some could argue that playing a heavy metal solo over a bebop jazz tune is not appropriate, he demonstrates enough musicality to get away with it!

Check out how he uses his fingers to vary the tone and attack, this is an opportunity to watch an absolute master of his craft.

Enjoy!
