“Our recording Master Classes are a chance for students to experience recording music in a working studio under real-world conditions, something we’ve been pleased to offer at Sweetwater Studios,” Hornsby said. “Carl and Albert have a wealth of session guitar experience between them and it’s a great opportunity for students to see how great guitar parts can make or break the recording process.”

Sweetwater Studios: Session Masters

During the three-day session, students will be working alongside Carl Verheyen and Albert Lee, two contemporary masters of the guitar with a wealth of stage and studio experience between them.

Albert LeeAlbert Lee has built an unimpeachable guitar legacy, with stints playing alongside greats like Eric Clapton, The Everly Brothers, Joe Cocker, and Emmy Lou Harris. His fingerstyle and hybrid picking techniques have made him an in-demand session player for more than 50 years, and his solo career has been a thoughtful exploration of traditional and roots genres.

Carl VerheyenCarl Verheyen has spent the last 40-plus years making his mark on a wide variety of music, from the progressive pop stylings of Supertramp to jazz, blues, and rock. He has been one of LA’s elite “first call” session players for the last several decades, and is critically acclaimed as a player, songwriter, and educator with fourteen albums and two live DVDs to his name.
