Matt Blackett About the Educator

Matt Blackett is a guitarist/instructor/writer from Berkely, Ca. As associate editor of Guitar Player magazine, Matt draws on his loves of gear, music, and teaching to write product reviews, artist profiles (including Jeff Beck Steve Vai, John Frusciante, and Tom Morello), and instructional pieces.
"The toughest thing about taking a job at Guitar Player," says Matt, "was leaving all my students. But now, instead of teaching one student at a time, I can potentially reach thousands, and that's exciting."
