GP's 40th Anniversary Concert

Guitar Player celebrated its 40th birthday at the Winter NAMM show by unleashing a ferocious platoon of acoustic and electric guitar greats on January 20, in partnership with Muriel Anderson’s All-Star Guitar Night.

Anaheim’s Hilton Ballroom resonated with quiet storms—a lá Anderson, Michael Chapdelaine, and friends—and fearsome displays of electrical power, courtesy of Richie Kotzen, Johnny Hiland, Dick Dale, and others. Dale was duly honored with the Guitar Player LEGEND award, and left everyone’s ears joyously ringing at the end of a fabulous night.
