Great Interview With Tony MacAlpine - May 2013

 

Oscar's Guitar Shop - Tony MacAlpine Interview... 

This was just emailed to me this morning by a fellow guitar-nut, and although it is several months old now, (from before the summer yet), it's such a good interview - especially if you are a MacAlpine fan - that I felt that I had to post it here on the CGS Blogger page...

Back on the 18th episode of Oscar's Guitar Shop (May-3-2013) Tony MacAlpine, (classical / neo-classical shred guitar virtuoso), joins Oscar for a great interview.


Oscar discusses Tony's career-start in Springfield, MA., Tony's creative process, his conservatory training, the early days with Mike Varney, touring with Steve Vai... along with Tony's up coming solo album and tour with Billy Sheehan, Derek Sherinian, and Mike Portnoy.



During the interview; Tony stresses the importance of learning to read music, practicing improvisation, classical training, and how we all, (as musicians), must learn to work hard at finding our own personal style of playing.

Check out the entire 52 min. interview below...
