SMG Interview with Frank Gambale – Alex Skolnick – Yamaha Guitars

The 2010 NAMM convention is so massively HUGE that not only had they filled the entire Anaheim Convention Center with musical gear, but the show had actually trickled over to the surrounding buildings. While we were scoping out the Yamaha showroom at the Hilton Hotel, located right across the street from the 2010 NAMM Convention Center, we caught up with Frank Gambale “Grand Master of the Sweep Picking Technique,” who took a few minutes away from his busy schedule to talk guitar with us. Check out SMG’s very own staff writer Oscar Jordan’s exclusive interview below:
