A wizard on guitar, Albert Lee is a true ‘old-time’ country and rock player with chops in the bucketloads. You might find it surprising that he’s not actually American! Albert Lee is arguably Britain’s most successful export in the genre, having worked with the Everly Brothers, Eric Clapton and Dolly Parton.

Described as a man without ego by his peers and the likes of Jimmy Page and Ritchie Blackmore, Albert is known as a real guitar player’s guitarist. Most of the time, you’ll find him with his signature Music Man or a Tele in his hands.

Listen to the Captain’s in-depth chat with the legend himself about growing up with the guitar, how he earned his nickname Mr Telecaster and how he keeps himself motivated over six decades of making music.

The Gristle King himself! Greg Koch is one of our favourite guitarists here at Andertons. He’s an incredibly expressive, versatile player and we think he’s a bit of an underrated gem.

Greg has an envious catalogue of critically acclaimed albums stretching back to his 1993. Joe Bonamassa and Steve Vai have referred to Greg as an inspiring player and one of the best around today.

Along with all the accolades, Greg Koch is a proper gear nerd and loves his tone twiddling. He takes the Captain through his signature Koch combo amp and Reverend guitars equipped with Gristle-Tone Fishman Fluence pickups.

You’ve got to be good to play with these guys, and Jennifer proved early on that she's got what it takes. She’s famous for her two-hand tapping technique and sumptuous blend of jazz and glamorous ‘80s shred – think Van Halen but funkier.

Jennifer Batten chatted with the Captain about making it big in LA, touring with the biggest pop star ever and shaping your own unique sound to stand out among the crowd.
