Description
Adrian Legg

Adrian Legg is an English guitar player who has been called "impossible to categorize". He plays custom guitars that are a hybrid of electric and acoustic, and his fingerstyle picking technique has been acknowledged by the readers of Guitar Player who voted Legg the "best acoustic fingerstyle" player four years in a row (1993–1996).

From his early start as a bench technician customising electric guitars, Legg moved into guitar instruction, publishing books and videos on guitar technique. In 1996 and 1997, Legg shared the stage with acclaimed guitar experts Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson and Steve Vai as part of the G3 tour. Vai called Legg "Uncle Adrian" and Satriani said of Legg's musicianship "He's simply the best acoustic guitar player I've ever heard. I don't know anyone else who can create such a cascade of beautiful notes... Adrian plays like he's got hammers for fingers."

Throughout his rich and varied career, Adrian Legg has earned the highest praise from music critics. “Through fast-fingered picking, spontaneously layering parts and occasional ringing harmonics, he sounds like an orchestra” (St. Petersburg Times). Guitar Player comments that he “combines a sublime melodic sense with a mighty right-hand groove, creating pretty music with rhythmically aggressive undercurrents,” while Acoustic Guitar notes,“the guitar is the most versatile instrument in the world, and nobody demonstrates this better than Adrian Legg.” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution sums up his impact on listeners best by noting, ”Mr. Legg's compositions, with their narrative melodies and nakedly emotive tones, offer an antidote to the guitar-hero syndrome.”

As an artist who defies definition, the best way to understand the magic of the multi-talented Adrian Legg is to experience him firsthand, something that is profoundly gratifying on many levels.
