Guitar Breaks news & blog
What a wonderful opportunity to spend quality time with great musicians, witnessing them in their own environment creating and performing original music to such a high standard. That was our experience a couple of days back. The Masterlink Sessions is a community of like-minded creatives.
The brains behind Masterlink, Stefan, Leo and James, create live in-the-studio music videos and host live streams out of Masterlink Studios near London. The nucleus of the studio band is the battle-hardened Redtenbacher’s Funkestra, including legendary drummer Mike Sturgis.
On the day we visited the studio we were delighted to discover Scott McKeon was sitting in on six string duties. Scott is such a tasty player with tone for days!
The Masterlink Session team have produced videos and recordings for Grammy Award winning artists, UK Voice winners, multi-national companies, legends of the UK music scene and support seriously good upcoming talent from all around the world.

It was just amazing to welcome Victory Amps to Guitar Breaks recently with the awesome Josh Smith in the house. Based in the Georgian town of Farnham, within a 5 minute walk of Guitar Village, the workshop was quite an experience for our group of guests!
We were super-excited to get the Josh Smith workshop back on, after too long! And it really did not disappoint. 4 days of intense guitar playing with one of the world's greatest electric guitar players, plus we had some special guests dropping by to say 'hello', including Daniel Steinhart, Paul Stacey and the legend that is Pete Friesen.

WHAT A DAY!
With such a great roster of wonderful players it was always going to be cool. But the Guitar Breaks inaugural Online Workshop was more than we could have hoped for. With our special guests: Sam Bell, Chris Buck, Mike Goodman & Rob Harris guiding our players through a day of technique, tone, touch, timing, creation and composition.
By the end, I think its fair to say our guitarists had well and truly had their minds (and fingers) blown away!
More workshops to come soon, but for now let's rest in the warm glow of this supremely talented group of players. Click the video below to get a feel for our online workshop experience.

Just wanted to let you know that Andy's Guitar Workshop in Brighton has been postponed, due to the continued effects of the coronavirus. We are now planning for the workshop to be moved to Spring 2021.
If you are already attending the event, we hope that you understand the need for this change and that it is not too inconvenient.
If you are interested in attending, you can still join Guitar Breaks and Andy Guitar in Brighton, England. We will be staying at the funky Hotel Pelirocco at night and based at the über-cool WaterBear College of Music and The Brighton Electric Studios during the days.
Located right on the sea front, the Hotel Pelirocco is England's most rock 'n roll hotel!
