Gabe is an excellent musician and teacher. I'm a professional musician with an advanced degree in music, and I still need to call on Gabe now and then for advanced tutoring or discussion on subjects from harmony to synthesis to arranging. He is my first call for a guitarist NO MATTER WHAT! Playing anything from rock to jazz to gospel, I can count on Gabe to do the most thorough and professional job. He's also been in the producer's chair for me on numerous occasions, coaching some of my best performances for the tape. I could go on about his achievements, qualifications, and successes, but perhaps Gabe's best qualities are his patience, honesty, and compassion. He's become not only a quintessential collaborator but a close friend, as well. I would recommend him as a teacher to students at all levels on various instruments.
