Website

German Schauss is a guitarist, composer, author, and educator who teaches at Berklee College of Music and the Los Angeles Music Academy. He performs and tours as the leader of his own band and with other internationally known artists. Schauss writes music for commercials, TV, and video games, and has been named one of the 50 fastest guitarists of all time by Guitar World magazine. He is the author of the best selling music books Shredding Bach, Shredding Paganini, and The Total Shred Guitarist published by Alfred and writes a popular monthly column “Instant Shredding” for Germany’s biggest guitar magazine Gitarre & Bass.

With dizzying precision and graceful agility, German Schauss takes us on a journey through the outer limits of sound through mind blowing guitar playing and melodic guitar lines soaring through stratospheric heights against the gravity of a rich and complex orchestral score. Using odd and even meters German fuses the classical influences of Bach, Beethoven and Chopin with modern instrumental rock guitar music through epic music structures and lush soundscapes.
