Excellent presentation

I really like Greg and how he presents the lessons. No dry lecturing here. He's a stunning player and demonstrates some fascinating techniques. I don't think I'll ever get to master, or even approach, actually managing to play any of them but they are wonderfully entertaining videos. My only crit would be that although he slows down what he's doing I find it difficult to follow the fingering but maybe that's just me.

An unsung guitar hero from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he grew up just a few miles from the Waukesha birthplace of the late, great guitarist-inventor Les Paul, Greg Koch has established himself within six-string circles as a masterful technician, accomplished clinician (for Fender) and general bad-ass guit-picker. No less than guitar virtuoso Steve Vai noted Koch’s six-string prowess and promptly signed him to his Favored Nations label in 2001. Tom Wheeler from Guitar Player magazine hailed him as “fiendishly talented” while other critics have called him everything from “a twisted guitar genius” to “the best kept secret in the guitar firmament.” A multiple award-winning string manipulator, he divides his time between international clinic tours, writing, recording and performing in Greg Koch and the Tone Controls (featured in this series). To sum it all up, “Imagine Chet and Hendrix meeting the Kings (Albert, Freddie, BB) at the first annual 'Zeppelin/Holdsworth Coffee Guzzler's Hoedown” - Guitar Player Magazine
