About Alex. G
” Guitarist, musician, songwriter “
Mostly 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 out 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 an early age of 19, he started teaching guitar at a Singapore Music School. At present, he offers private guitar coaching. 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 both as a live & studio hired-gun, to both concerts and recording projects alike.
Alex G. has been privileged to have been recognised by brands like Gibson Guitar, Curt Mangan Strings, TSW Pedal, FreeTheTone Pedal, FU-Tone, Awe in One picks, Sinasoid Cables, Creation Audio Lab, Lugville, Aurisonic Inears and Echoinox. He enjoys direct endorsement deals with them. His deepest desire is to be a world class guitarist, and to inspire and teach others who share this same passion.
