That's a pretty good guitar stand-off.

Gilbert has been voted fourth-best on GuitarOne magazine's "Top 10 Greatest Guitar Shredders of All Time".[1] He has also ranked in Guitar World's "50 Fastest Guitarists of All Time" list.[2]

hell yeah...i couldnt imagine walking into a music store and seeing someone like paul there...
you walk in to get a pack of strings and you wind up going back and forth with one of the greatest guitarists(and MI instructor) or all time...
too awesome

Aside from being one of the world's best guitarists, he's a riot.

i want to see a G3 with paul gilbert, guthrie govan, and buckethead....

I would ask him if I could have his magical pinky and to play technical difficulties as well.

You go up to him and say hi. Paul is a super nice guy and very approachable. I knew Paul when I was going to Musicians Institute back in the mid 80's and had a couple lessons from him also. He's one of the most down to earth people you'll ever meet. I wish I had half of his talent.

No, never met Jennifer she graduated a few year before I attended MI. Paul's a very good teacher, learning from him and some of the others teachers there at the time, were both a technical learning experience, as well as a lesson in humility LOL. GIT has some great teachers and they never made you feel less than. It was a great experience for me although at times a little overwhelming.
