Surf shredder guitar legend Gary Hoey was a featured artist this year at the Vancouver session of Guitar Workshop Plus. He taught a session today and also played a show tonight featuring some classic blues songs such as "Going Down," "The Thrill is Gone," "Further On Up The Road" and others. Hoey is not only a superb shredder, but he's a tremendous performer and a very nice guy. He talked about how he learned guitar as a teenager, the ups and downs of his career, some of his musical influences and more. Then for his final song, he brought out more than a dozen students in succession to jam with him on stage to "Redhouse." The video clip below features teenager Matteo Kennedy of the band Abstract, from Comox Valley, BC.
I've posted a few more videos from the show:
