About Alex. G Lim
“Guitarist, Musician, Songwriter”
Known for his showmanship on stage with his aged Gibson Les Paul, Alex was born and raised in Singapore. He started playing the guitar at the early age of 17, inspired to play while attending church, full of dreams of playing on stage.
Having started learning classical guitar through Spanish pieces, Alex G’s influences took a turn when he heard “Stranger In This Town” by Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi’s Guitarist). With the influences of Richie Sambora as his main springboard, Alex G. dived into the world of electric guitar playing, rapidly widening his repertoire across many genres and styles, aided by the thorough foundations of his classical background.
At the age of 19, he started teaching guitar at a Singapore Music School. The rest of his time was spent serving his church based in Singapore. Later at the age of 25 years old, he answered his call to serve as a full time lead guitarist with various clubs and bands, playing 6 to 7 nights a week.
At 26 years old, he was given the opportunity to be a Band Leader while availing himself as a live and studio hired-gun, to both concerts and recording projects alike.
Alex G. is privileged to be recognised by brands such like Gibson Guitar, Curt Mangan Strings, TSW Pedal, FreeTheTone Pedal, FU-Tone, Awe-In-One Picks, Sinasoid Cables, Creation Audio Lab, and Aurisonic Inears. His deepest desire is to be a world-class guitarist and to inspire and teach others who share this same passion. At present, he offers one-to-one guitar coaching lessons and Hired-Gun services.
