A feast for the fingers served up by the master of guitar histrionics! The inimitable Greg Koch discusses and demonstrates his twisted but tasty take on the guitar in gory detail. The menu includes full-band demos of select Koch tunes, and lessons on the techniques therein: “Zoinks” – The B-Bender • “Spank It” – Chicken Pickin' Fricassee • “Torn Asunder” – Behind-the-Nut String Rustling • “Death of a Bassman” – Hybrid Picking Wrongdoing • “Tonus Diabolicus” – Fun with Delays and “The Devil's Interval” • “Chief's Blues” – Blues Playing and Giving. Total running time: 1 hour 12 minutes.
Greg Koch's virtuosity, sense of humor, and articulate nature have led to a successful career as a bandleader, studio musician, author, clinician, and recording artist with Steve Vai's Favored Nations label. 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 on this DVD).
