What an exciting month for guitar playing. For April 2015 we are spotlighting another guitar great that has been on the scene for many years. Rob Balducci hails from New York where is also a professional guitar teacher. He got discovered after winning a local contest in 1990 that was sponsored by Guitar For The Practicing Musician. This win would make him known as New York’s best guitarist.
Balducci has a degree in Music performance and Theory from Five Towns College. Rob Balducci released his first album Balance in 1995. He has become so great that even Steve Vai signed him to his record label Favored Nations. Guitarists that would like to discover his style need to listen to his recordings. Additionally, he has his own guitar instructional video through The Rock House Method company which can be found in music stores including Guitar Center.
Rob has been playing Ibanez guitars for years and is endorsed by the brand.
This is a huge time for Rob because he just released a new recording called 821 Monroe Drive. There will be a review of this recording after we listen to it three times. But to give a sneak peak, we think it is great and full of inspiration. Balducci has performed around the world and can be found performing locally in the New York and New Jersey areas with his band The Rob Balducci Band.
Check out some these videos and experience the fiery guitar greatness of Rob Balducci.
