A sweep sound of music at WAAPA

The elektric Frank Gambale.

WAAPA music students are getting a chance to jam with Los Angeles guitar guru Frank Gambale for a two-night performance.

Gamble was Australian-born but moved to LA and graduated from the Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood, and made it big in the world of jazz fusion guitar in the 1980s as part of the Chick Corea Elektric Band. 

As a music educator he pioneered the “Gambale Sweep Picking Technique” and he’s in town to share his expertise with WAAPA musos at a week of workshops and masterclasses ahead of the performances alongside students on May 5 and 6.

They’re at Geoff Gibbs Theatre at WAAPA’s Mount Lawley campus, tickets $40/$35 via waapa.ecu.edu.au
