German Schauss - The Light Speeder - Album Available Now!

''He plays faster than the police allows musicians, and his arpeggios Sweeps are incredible, and his compositions are a real blast.'' Gitarre & Bass Magazine

With dizzying precision and graceful agility, German Schauss takes us on a journey through the outer limits of sound through mind blowing guitar playing and melodic guitar lines soaring through stratospheric heights against the gravity of a rich and complex orchestral score. Using odd and even meters German fuses the classical influences of Bach, Beethoven and Chopin with modern instrumental rock guitar music through epic music structures and lush soundscapes.

As a composer, performer and educator, German is involved in various music projects including his own solo instrumental rock project, teaching at Berklee College of Music and the Los Angeles Music Academy, writing articles for MelBay and developing an advanced Rock Guitar course on ''Shredding Techniques'' for the National Guitar Workshop's online school WorkshopLive.com. German writes the popular monthly guitar column "Instant Shredding" in Germany's biggest guitar magazine "Gitarre & Bass." He is a 5 time (2004-2009) recipient of the ASCAP Plus Award from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. The July 2008 Issue of Guitar World Magazine listed German as one of the fastest Guitarist of all time.
