It’d be accurate to describe Paul Gilbert as a true pioneer of the guitar virtuoso rock scene that we’ve become accustomed to today. His technical but musical playing has inspired a generation of guitarists, building on a legacy that stretches from the ‘80s right on through to the current day.

Paul sits down with The Captain before his Guildford guitar clinic – leading to an extensive conversation that covers his early influences, teaching, becoming a dad and what he’s up to at the moment!  

In our 'The Captain Meets...' series on Youtube, our very own Lee Anderton spends some quality time with some of the hottest and most influential artists in the business. Topics of discussion range from favourite guitar pedals to most severe injuries on tour - nothing is off-limits.

Nita Strauss has been testing her mettle in some of the fiercest musical arenas around, developing a well-founded reputation that’s seen her play with the likes of Alice Cooper, Jermaine Jackson and Femme Fatale. She is one of the most in-demand clinicians in the industry for a reason. Endorsements from the likes of Marshall and Ibanez quickly followed; Nita became the first female Ibanez signature artist, resulting in her very own custom JIVA10 guitar.

Taking time out from a 6-week string of clinic dates, Nita and The Captain hang out to discuss gear, life on the road, and the challenges that female musicians face across the industry. Lee gets a first-hand demonstration of Nita’s amazing chops too!
