Recently, Mr. Scary himself, the incomparable George Lynch, paid a visit to Sweetwater for clinic/workshop on behalf of ESP guitars. Guitar virtuoso Lynch, known as the driving force behind such bands as Dokken, Lynch Mob, Souls of We, and T&N, wowed the capacity crowd in Sweetwater’s state of the art Performance Theatre with his awe-inspiring playing and with his incredible passion for music and guitar.
Sweetwater is now a dealer for ESP guitars, and George played each of his ESP signature models and discussed his 27-year relationship with ESP. Not only did George graciously answer questions from the audience, he treated us to tracks from his own catalog, and even closed out the event by jamming with a band comprised of instructors from the Sweetwater Academy of Music and staff from the Sweetwater Retail Store.
Sweetwater’s Editorial Director, Mitch Gallagher, sat down with George the next morning for an extended Sweetwater Minute video interview filled with a fascinating discussion of Lynch’s career and playing style.
Our thanks to ESP for sponsoring this event and to George Lynch, who was so generous with his time and playing.
