This is my first venture with PledgeMusic, and it is likely to evolve as the journey continues. So check back often, to see what is happening. I certainly appreciate your support. I love my job as a musician, and I am filled with gratitude that good people support my endeavors.
I pledge to you, to speak the language of guitar into that one microphone, with the grooviest musicians around, and to deliver a record that both you and I will want to listen to come rain or come shine.
Oh yeah, and how about the album title? Get ready, here it is…“Behold My Electric Rock Jazz Blues Guitar Record Album” Or for short…“BEHOLD ELECTRIC GUITAR.” All right. Enjoy. Thank you very much. Paul Gilbert

NEW! Paul Gilbert 2007 G3 Tour / Super Detail Guitar Digital
Paul’s Description: In 2007, I had the pleasure and honor of playing on Joe Satriani’s G3 tour with my solo band. The sound engineer asked me if I wanted to record all my shows multi-track, with Pro Tools. And I said, “YES!”
All the shows went very well, but I remember we had a particularly magical night in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The obvious thing to do would be to mix the show, and make a live album. But I have a different idea which you may enjoy. As I listened to the recordings, I found that I was enjoying listening to ONLY my guitar tracks (from two mics, so it’s in stereo.) It’s sort of how it would sound if you were sitting on stage, right in front of my amp (although thankfully, not as loud.) So in a PledgeMusic exclusive offer, you can hear my guitar performance of the entire show…. my best live playing of 2007, in amazing, close-up detail. Enjoy!
