About Paul Thompson

Paul loves guitars, guitarists, and music made with a guitar to an almost worrying extent. But he didn't start out playing the guitar and was a good pianist until the age of nine when 'Rock' entered his life. Since then, he has also become accomplished on a range of other instruments, but Guitar is still his number one love!

He has played in a lot of bands over the years, the majority of them rock bands and mainly playing guitar. He has a substantial home recording studio and enjoys recording his own and other people's music as often as he can.

His passion for the guitar always comes through in his writing, and he hopes to continue to preach the importance of guitar music for decades to come.

He lives in Chicago with his girlfriend Pam and lots and lots of guitars!
