FEATURING A LIVE
AND MEET & GREET WITH
Michael Angelo Batio is one of the originators and
pioneers of the entire “shred guitar” genre. Batio
showcased guitar techniques and innovations for
the first time on his early instructional programs, as
well as in live performances, that are now considered
standard techniques among guitarists throughout the
entire world. Batio was voted the “No. 1 Shredder of
All Time” by Guitar One magazine in 2003 and was also
listed as one of the “Top 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists
of All Time” by Guitar World magazine in 2008. Batio
is famously ambidextrous, enabling him to play two
guitars at the same time either in synchronization or
using separate harmonies. Batio is also the inventor
and was the world’s first player of the double-guitar.
Batio is currently touring the world with his multimedia
chronological tribute show, entitled “Hands Without
Shadows – A Tribute to Rock Guitar.”
Join Guitar Center and Michael Angelo Batio for a unique
evening of insight, discussion and live performance.
