From platinum album sales and #1 chart success as a founding member of MR. BIG, to frightening the guitar community with new levels of ferocious picking technique with shred-pioneers RACER X, to exploring punk, pop, classical, blues, jazz, and progressive instrumental styles in his solo career, Paul Gilbert has held a top spot in the world of rock guitar technique for decades. He also has the rare ability to break down his techniques and ideas to be understood by guitarists at any level. Paul currently records and tours extensively as a solo artist and clinician, as well as teaching at his Artistworks Online Rock Guitar School.

Featured guest guitar instructors at Paul Gilbert’s Great Guitar Escape include: Ibanez guitar signature artist Andy Timmons (DANGER DANGER, Simon Phillips, Paul Stanley of KISS, Olivia Newton-John, Paula Abdul), internationally renowned jazz guitarist/composer Mimi Fox (Stevie Wonder, Charlie Byrd, Diana Krall, Branford Marsalis, Joey DeFrancesco), Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston Scotty Johnson (Paul Gilbert, Robben Ford’s Fords and Friends, The Ford Blues Band, The Blindside Blues Band), acclaimed rock/blues/slide guitarist Tony Spinner, and Adam Fulara who specializes in two-handed contrapuntal tapping.

Guest guitar instructor Andy Timmons says, "I'm so pleased to be a part of this year’s Great Guitar Escape! Any opportunity to be around lots of great players is always inspiring, and I truly love teaching and helping players get to the 'next level.’ Plus, I'm hopeful that some of Paul's extraordinary abilities will rub off on me!"
