Gretchen Menn is a compelling guitarist with an interesting backstory. She’s best known as a flashy electric guitar virtuoso. But she’s also a university-trained classical guitarist with a deep background in theory and composition. Her style fuses both attitudes—Gretchen is one sophisticated shredder!

Gretchen's classical training is evident in all her playing, even when she’s shredding on electric. She discusses how her years of nylon-string playing inform her style.
