Grammy winning guitar virtuoso, Frank Gambale, exploded on the L.A. scene in the early ‘80’s. His meteoric rise to fame is a testament to his passion powered playing – a style “Rolling Stone Magazine” calls “ferocious”!

Gambale is an inspired songwriter with over 250 songs published on 20+ albums. His music touches on many styles from rock, funk, and jazz to R&B and some Latin and Brazillian influences.

As a legendary guitarist, Gambale is the undisputed genius who originated the sweep picking technique ( a new way to play the instrument ) and elevated it to a precise art form now standard in the guitar lexicon. The “Gambale Sweep Picking Technique” continues to inspire generations of musicians. Jazz, rock, metal and progressive artists alike are united in their awe of Frank as both an amazing technician and an unsurpassed musician.

As jazz legend, Chick Corea, describes Frank: “Everything you touch with your guitar turns gold – always has.&rdquo, Corea also said “Frank is my favorite guitar player”; While John McLaughlin’s tongue-in-cheek response to his finesse is “I’d like to cut his hands off.

Jazz guitarist, Pat Metheny, says of Frank: “I’d like to take a month off and study with Frank Gambale; While Dweezil Zappa said, “studying Frank Gambale’s Sweep Picking technique enabled me to play the hardest parts of my father’s music that he himself didn’t play”.

A musician’s musician, a gifted composer, brilliant innovator and author of numerous instructional books and DVDs, Frank continues to reach unprecedented sonic and technical heights. His six-string prowess and seemingly limitless vision point towards an exciting future of ground-breaking music.
