MELBOURNE GUITAR FESTIVAL INTERVIEWS: DAVID LESLIE

The Australian Music Association is thrilled to announce the 2018 return of the Melbourne Guitar Show, set to rock Caulfield Racecourse on August 4 and 5 – and this year, it’ll be bigger than ever. We’re catching up with some of this year’s guitar guests to talk about what they love the most: GUITARS
Fave guitar brand & why
Grubisa Guitars – Frank Grubisa is a personal friend of mine and his guitars are versatile and always sound great.

Most memorable music moment
When I spent the afternoon playing the Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix gave Frank Zappa (I licked it when no one was looking!)

Guitarist that inspired me to learn to play
Kevin Borich – he continues to inspire my playing.

How many guitars I own & my personal fave
11 Guitars – personal fave is L-series Stratocaster

Gibson vs Fender – which do you love?
Fender – because Jimi Hendrix played them!

Most under rated guitarist in music & why?
Doug Rappoport – he’s a downright monster!

The Melbourne Guitar Show will be held at Caulfield Racecourse on August 4 and 5.
