Rich’s main influences include Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery, Brian May, and Guthrie Govan, although he is quick to add that he cannot play like them. His go-to guitar is a white Gretsch G5120 hollow-body, and his go-to bass is a Hofner short-scale Galaxie bass. Most importantly, Rich is a self-confessed gear nut, and will talk about FX until the cows come home.

In late 2008 he released the first book of his Mystic Art of Self-Discovery series entitled Mind Over Metal: The Musician’s Guide to Mental Mastery. With SVH’s Zen approach to conquering guitar and other obstacles that come his way, it’s a great read and we recommend that you check it out!
