Another guitar star, Guthrie has recently shot to super stardom on the guitar scene, despite being one of the top names on the UK circuit since winning Guitarist of the Year way back in Guthrie's input at Licklibrary is, understandably, limited due to just how in demand he is, but for over 10 years now he's had a connection to LickLibrary and Total Accuracy and his web lessons and live webcast are still some of the most popular things on the site. Guthrie is so great,in many ways,not just an absolute guitar hero,but his tuition on licklibrary is also great to watch. Just wish I could have a one to one for the day with him. Im sure he would put me in line

More recently, he has collaborated with Steven Wilson and Hans Zimmer. Govan was named "Guitarist of the Year" by Guitarist magazine in Govan began playing guitar aged three, encouraged by his father, but initially learning mainly by ear. His father taught him three chords first, and introduced him to his record collection. He worked out chords and solos from listening to the records.
I love watching Guthrie Govan play especially the fretless vigier he's a guitar masterclass everytime he plays. The great thing about Guthrie is a wonderful sense of humour he's got a dry sense of humour which is priceless. This combined with his extreme guitar technique makes him one of my all time favourites.
