Sean Ashe may be a young dude, but he has a musical sense and wisdom far beyond his years. His style of tasteful, ultra-melodic instrumental guitar is the foamy cutting edge on the new wave of anti-shred – which is not to say that he doesn’t play fast, only that he doesn’t use speed as a crutch.

He demonstrates his precocious sense in this interview where he gives an accurate state-of-the-music-2015 address, along with a rundown of what his plans are for the coming year. Keep an eye on this guy and his sweet Tom Anderson Guitarworks Ginger Burst Angel guitar at his YouTube channel or on Facebook.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
