For some time, he has been widely regarded as one of the U.K.’s rising stars in the realms of Shred & Metal guitar. Now, Andy James has undeniably earned himself a place among the very best in the world.

As a major contributor to ‘Lick Library’, Andy has specialised in teaching lead techniques for Heavy Rock and Metal. Not only can he be found mastering others’ techniques but, influenced by the likes of John Petrucci, Paul Gilbert and Adam Dutkiewicz, Andy proves that he is incredibly skilled as a songwriter, as heard on solo albums ‘In the Wake of Chaos’ and ‘Machine’, as well as his contribution to his band, Sacred Mother Tongue.

Be it workshops, exhibitions or with Sacred Mother Tongue, seeing this man live is a must. To witness first hand the sound, the dynamic, the dexterity and the speed with which he plays, live on stage, is a site to behold and is the personification of what has made Andy James world-renowned in his field, and this year, the world is his fretboard.
