On April 12th, I had the great privilege to play for Paul Gilbert, at the occasion of his Masterclass show, in my hometown, Coimbra. In fact, it all started two months before, when I was invited for the event and began learning all the material: 10 songs, including rock classics from The Beatles, Gary Moore, Scorpions, among others. Paul Gilbert also sent three original songs from his new album “Behold Electric Guitar”.
I would like to thank Paul Gilbert for this incredible opportunity to play and meet in person one of the greatest rock guitarists.
I would also like to express my gratitude to Marco Matos of Virtuosos da Guitarra for the invitation and my partner in crime Sérgio Marques, on drums, who did a terrific job and was a joy to work with, throughout the rehearsals we did together. Finally, to Américo Silva and his team at Music Light, for the excellent sound and stage work.
Below are some of the songs from this memorable show, which I hope you will enjoy watching!
