German Schauss

Close Encounters with The Lightspeeder: German Schauss

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.

Endorsed by Schecter Guitars, Bogner Amps, Kemper Amps, EMG Pickups, D'Addario, Planet Waves, Maxon, Voodoo Lab, Rocktron, Godlyke, PreSonus, Pedaltrain, Native Instruments and Morley, German plays clinics and concerts at international music fair and trade shows such as Musikmesse Frankfurt, the NAMM Show. He also performs for nationally and internationally know artists around the world.
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 other music schools and colleges, writing articles and books for major publishing companies such as Alfred Publishing. His best selling books and Videos include: Shredding Bach, Shredding Paganini, Shredding the Composers, Serious Shred Techniques, The Total Shred Guitarist, Shredding Workout and Speed Guitar.

German writes the popular monthly guitar column "Instant Shredding" in Germany's biggest guitar magazine "Gitarre & Bass." He is a 8 time 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.
