Even Chuck Norris looks to Paul Gilbert for technique...
Bill Cavin
Every time I watch him play something, anything.... I want to turn my guitar into a coffee table or take up checkers. Then I realize I'm just a mere mortal human and I can start playing again.... He truly is an amazing guitar player...
Paul Gilbert should give lessons of how to give lessons.

No matter how long or how good you are, Paul Gilbert has such a great way to make you feel enthusiastic about playing again, no matter how \
D Green
Paul is one of the most tasteful guitarists ever. You can hear the soul in his playing. Excellent phrasing and dynamic, unexpected melodies keep you excited and on edge! Check out his jam with Nathan East here on YT - they riff for like 20 minutes on one note, but it's really cool.
D Grundman
I'm absolutely positive that if Paul Gilbert had have been my Political Science teacher in High School instead of the horribly self important and close minded Mr. Severns, I would have passed that awful class (worst class and grade of my entire academic 'career' ha ha!) and maybe even possibly enjoyed the damn class.\n\nPaul Gilbert, the most excited, happy and mind blowingly talented, not to mention dedicated and passionate, guitar teacher and 'spokesperson' for guitarists that ever lived, hands down!
Damon Stewart
so musical!!! even in racer X PAUL was shredding but BENDING STRINGS,using intense musicality as well as spot on rhythm...MH could learn a lesson from this
Daniel Hoae'ae-Lewis
Possibly one of the most amazing videos I've ever seen. So much awesome came out of that. Thanks so much.
Daniel McConnell
Paul Gilbert the one guitarist that makes everyone want an ibanez
Daniel Ormsby
I started playing in 1965 when I was 10 years old self taught no tablature rather listen than look at a piece of paper and feel it! You are awesome Paul I feel your compassion when you share your Master knowledge of music It is beyond my head knowledge but I get it musically. I've never shared anything on line before,, but I had to tell you how much I enjoy you're  instruction!
Darin Warren
Oh no! Please let me be wrong. I’m seeing some early Michael J Fox here.
Darren Lustre

I have been watching Paul for many years he in my humble opinion is such a master teacher and player I love the jimmy leg when he gets going to keep time you Sir are a rock God :-)
“URH” Great lesson! Thanks for the upload :)
Some of these licks remind me of the song High Speed Dirt by Megadeth which is quite bizarre but that song sounds very bluesy too especially the solos

Paul is the Nicest guy of all time...

Paul makes learning so entertaining. This is what's missing from so many guitar teachers.. He's genuinely exciting about teaching people..

That magnet is one of the smartest things I've seen in life.

I'm a simple man, I see Paul Gilbert - I click

14:19 wimpiest vibrato, was rolling on the floor with laughter
Evgeny Shumilin
It now seems to me that blues has a place for every single note, you just need the right attenuation to let it blend in! Fantastic lesson!!!!!!!!!!! I think I have learned in one hour as much as in the last 4 to 6 months. And blues skill increased by 1000%!-:D
Eze Merlino
Paul went from being like the the cool older brother around the time of Intense Rock, to the crazy, fun uncle nowadays.

The Bill Nye of the guitar world.

His upper midrange hearing is damaged, which is why he slurs \

Paul Gilbert is a sweetheart. I've met him a couple of times backstage during the Mr. Big days. While Scorpians had a line of cheap hoes and hullabaloo a mile long, Paul Gilbert was just relaxing outside his bus, and being super nice to a few teenaged guitar dorks. What impressed me was how personable and conversational he was. Considering his talent/skill, he's one of the most down to earth people you could meet. We just talked about music and tv shows we liked. A rockstar, but absolutely not a rockstar.
Jack Dauley
i wanna know how he got that slide on his finger so fast
James kornbrust
Just got done watching a joe sat video,and this is so much better 🤣 he's s boring even though he's amazing as a player! Paul is so much better to listen to.

Like a mad scientist with a guitar.
Jimmie Wiseman
Though I didn't learn this from Paul himself, I learned a great little tidbit about Paul's playing the other day from an issue of Guitar World out now with Paul on the cover. It brought out that Paul holds his right hand in a \
Joe Satchton
Despite being a Joe fanatic since the 80s, I'll be dammed if anyone can name me one other stupendous guitar player who exudes as much sheer, genuine joy when playing [and teaching!] as PG does. I dare ya... :D Best. Guitar. Faces. EVER.
Josh Brown
Always a treat to watch Paul. Btw is he ok? His speech/mouth appears different... Hope all is well with him. Seems like a great guy and ambassador!
KBTO Falconi

Paul Gilbert is one of the best guitar teachers ever. Great attitude, amazingly qualified, and teaches concepts you can immediately use. Him and Tom Feldmann are my favorites for video lessons.

Phil Last Name
Whitldey whitldey...Is that the proper way to spell whitldey?
He can do more with 4 notes than I can with the entire guitar
The biggest thing running through my head rn is the insane difference between paul Gilbert and buckethead its like i can see those two goofing off but its still the weirdest thing
How can anyone mark a thumbs down on anything Paul Gilbert does? Jealous idiots!
RJC 72
How funny would it have been if Paul busted out a Grim Reaper riff right in front of Nick Bowcott? LOL!
Ramsey Adam Clark
Paul kinda looks like like a taller Eckhart Tolle.
Rick Teichroeb
Paul Gilbert is the guitar god i want to meet and jam with. He speaks to me more than anyone. i should just start praying to him already lmao!
Rob Juujuu
If I could only be 1/10th as good as he is I'd be in a happy place.
Ron Figg
Of all the amazing guitar players out there, Paul has been the best teacher of all of them! Simple, effective and easy to understand! His energy and personality are extremely inspiring! Everyone remember...Pentatonic Licks 👏🏻? I met him at a Sebastian Bach concert 15 years ago in Vegas and he was cool as hell!
Sample Dude
Doesn't this guy age?
Samuel Williams
This is the guy who taught Buckethead. Amazing teacher. Go thru Buckets Pike series and you’ll find the most amazing riffs & solos in one collection of music than I thought was possible. But it all started with Paul’s teaching
Shane Stevens
Man we love you Paul .\nI'm a heterosexual male but still love you brother , you make the world a better place you really do , what a talent , what a person , respect to probably the nicest person in music !!!!!!
Shutup & Play - guitar tutorials
That was awesome!
Sniffing Swede
RRRK! :) I love how as far back as Terrifying Guitar Trip Paul Gilbert has shown that personality is a massive part of guitar playing. He comes across as somebody who takes nothing seriously apart from his respect for his listener, the absolute love he has for the music the guitar can make, and how it can make you smile.

Paul I love you !!! Almost everything I know on guitar is because of you, my actual technique is a gift from you.\nYOU are the BEST !\nThank you, sincerely
Thank You! Sweetwater truly ROX! Best dudes in the world to deal with. They back their shit:) ...yeah, you can use that:)
Paul Gilbert makes the world better place.

I live you Paul, but you have the ugliest choices in custom guitars I have ever seen over the years. The fake \
Best guitar teacher ever
Travis Beck
PG is just the best! I always learn so much from him and have over my 20 years playing the guitar! Thank you for this rad lesson!
please get this message to paul gilbert..... tell him he can go and f*** right off.....tell him we all know by now that he is not human! hahahaha. Actually ifI could ask him a question it may be to ask him exactly how many songs he can play? As in he must try quantify it.... because I swear he can cover every song from 1960 to 2018! hahahaha
True Scotsman

Wilmer Lebron
Ridiculous!! Amazing Intro!!! Wow 😮!! What Playing!! Omg!! 🎸🎶🔥🤘🏻🤘🏻

For those that don't know Nick Bowcott \
He could be giving a lecture on economics and I would still be mesmerized w a stupid smile on my face and my jaw on the floor

What a great teacher.
chris van allsburg
Great lesson thank you!
I love how Paul talks about playing different amounts of notes per string and how it could be difficult, i can actually play that so im pretty impressed with my skill. \

Absolutely, hands down, the greatest guitar teacher there is, and has been, since the 80's. While there are greater players-not many(Holdsworth, DiMeola, Morse)-there is simply no one that even comes close to his ability to not only teach advanced concepts to the novice, but eliminate their fear of the instrument.\nI always go back to him when I get in a rut, and he always pulls me out.
david cardona
Paul you are one or the my Rushmore Mountain of Guitar Legends! God Bless you!
Of course he is a fantastic guitar player, but to me the really great thing about Paul Gilbert is that he is the same backstage as he is on stage. Even if he travelled 1000 miles last night and was delayed or something. Still friendly and everything under control. \nThere are so many people really friendly backstage, but behaving likes assholes on stage. Or exactly the opposite, assholes backstage, trying to act friendly onstage. You can't trust those people. Maybe it's the pressure, maybe it's the role they play.\n\nBut to me it's his behaviour and the ability to share knowledge that makes Paul special to me. 1+1=3.
I'll sleep soundly now, knowing that I can keep my widdly-widdly.
One of the best lessons I've seen...ever.
Paul actually needs to do a lesson on... kindness
michael bujanda
Paul Gilbert, in my opinion had gotten better over the years than he was in the 80s!!!! He is more wiser and he can still shred and play tasty guitar licks on the guitar!!! He is kind of like some of those nerdy , dorky college professors I had in some of the science classes I had taken. He is so passionate in teachning the subject matter that it makes it interesting and easy to learn and remember!!!! 😊🎸😊🎸🎶😊🎵😊🎼😊🎼😊🎼😊🎸🎸🎸
Paul is awesome as a person, a guitar teacher and a guitar player. We need more guys like Paul
How can you not love this guy. Freakin phenomenal guitarist/musician, and instructor. He knows exactly how to explain guitar from the theory to application. He will go down as one of the greatest ever. Great great video!! Thanks Sweetwater! !!
hes so nice. i love him. really wonderful teacher
I’ve learned so much from this guys videos it’s unreal. My “ watch later” list is literally littered with Paul G videos
