Join the U.K.’s leading session musicians for a free lunchtime event for all guitar, tech and music enthusiasts. Gibson Guitar will host Gibson Tech Talk on Tuesday, May 1, at 1 p.m. (GMT) in the exclusive Gibson Guitar Studio in Central London (29-35 Rathbone Street, London W1T 1NJ).

Gibson Tech Talk is a free, monthly event, providing guitarists and musicians of all abilities and musical tastes the opportunity to question and engage with the U.K.’s leading session musicians from the All Stars Collective. This event is designed for amateur and professional musicians to learn new techniques and styles of performance or to purely to sit back and listen to some great tales of life on the road.

The All Stars Collective comprises 40 top session players who have performed on some of the best-known recordings in the world with artists such as Michael Jackson, Prince, Sir Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Jeff Beck, George Michael, Kylie Minogue and Leona Lewis, to name a few.

Topics for group discussion are primarily related to gear, technique, sound, tone, parts, maintenance and so on. Guests can discuss issues they may have with their own guitar or simply learn how to achieve a specific rock riff, tone or sound.

Guests are invited to test out the latest Epiphone models during the event; these will include the Les Paul Standard Royale, Les Paul Ultra 111, Limited Edition ES-355, ES-345 and the Rob Flynn Love/Death Flying V.
