Martin Goulding

My name is Martin Goulding and I'm a professional guitarist/teacher/producer based in London.

Since graduating from G.I.T (London) in 1993, I have worked professionally as a guitar player and teacher, joining the faculty of the prestigious Guitar Institute in 1998 where I am currently the course writer and specialist in Higher Diploma/Degree level Modern Rock studies.

I have worked as a regular monthly columnist for Guitar Techniques (UK) magazine and Guitar World (USA) as well as online magazine The Sound, specialising in advanced Rock/Metal techniques as well as course leader and clinician for the International Guitar Foundation summer schools.

My work has been featured in the international bestseller "Guitar A Complete Guide For The Player " published in 2002. I have worked as a session musician for Chappell recorded music library; Bruton Music, Zomba as well as TV theme music for the BBC. I also engineer/play/program and produce for artists in styles from pop/soul/funk/rock/metal, and produce and write for UK progressive-metal-fusion band Linear Sphere, who have just released their 2012 album Manvantara.

Lick of the week no. 32 - Dragon's Fury

Here we have a free lick taken from the “Dragon’s Fury” solo study, based around the neo-classical rock/metal style. This style gained popularity from the groundbreaking release of Yngwie Malmsteen’s 1984 debut album Rising Force, born from Yngwie’s unique blend of influences, combining classical harmonies and melodies with violin virtuoso Nicolo Paganini and composer J.S Bach cited as influences, alongside the high energy presentation of seventies rock legends like Jimi Hendrix, Uli Jon Roth and Ritchie Blackmore.

Lick of the week no. 30 - On the Beach

Here we have a free lick taken from the On the Beach solo study, based around the hard-rock style. This style gained popularity from the late 1970’s with Eddie Van Halen’s groundbreaking debut album Van Halen, released in 1978 and featuring the legendary showcase Eruption. The style is characterised by choppy sounding riffs interspersed with flashy fills and flamboyant lead playing, often showcasing cutting edge techniques mixed in with a blues/rock-based core vocabulary.
