Dave Reffett - is an amazingly dedicated and extremely intricate guitar player who's name and music is growing daily by leaps and bounds. When Esoterik Guitars owner (Ryan Cook) first spoke with Dave, he knew we had to get him on board.
Dave Reffett is a Berklee College of Music graduate and has worked with some of the best players in rock and metal. He is an instructor at (and the head of) the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal department at The Real School of Music in the metro Boston area. He also is a master clinician and a highly-in-demand private guitar teacher. He teaches lessons in person and worldwide via Skype. As an artist and performer, he is working on some soon-to-be revealed high-profile projects with A-list players in rock and metal. In 2009, he formed the musical project Shredding The Envelope and released the critically acclaimed album The Call Of The Flames.
"At age 28, I've had the incredible honor to have worked with some of the most phenomenal musicians and producers on the planet, including George Lynch, Mike Mangini, Michael Angelo Batio, Chris Poland and Glen Drover (Megadeth), Mudrock (Alice Cooper, Avenged Sevenfold), George Marino (AC/DC, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix) and more. It's all the result of a dedicated work ethic and a positive attitude."
"In addition to this, I've been blessed greatly in my life by earning the opportunity to appear in magazines from all over the world, including Gitar Plus in Asia and Hard Rocker in Europe (which gave my album a near-perfect 9.5-out-of-10 review)."
"I also got to fulfill a life long dream of mine by gracing the pages of Guitar World magazine in the October and November 2010 issues with Zakk Wylde and Jimmy Page on the covers, respectively. I've also appeared on Guitar World's awesome (Lick of the day) app alongside legends like Joe Satriani."
Dave Reffett was born in Blue River, Kentucky in 1983 and grew up in the coalfields of the Appalachian Mountains. Being secluded grew to be somewhat of a blessing for Dave because at age 13 when he became obsessed with playing music he could practice for sometimes up to 12 hours every day without the distractions of big city life.
Dave has been dedicated to truly honing his craft since he was a child. Through years of teaching and learning all aspects of guitar, playing and performing with some of the most well known artists on the planet and working for many major record labels, he has earned and been blessed with the tools necessary to achieve his goals.
Dave is now very busy working on many new projects including his ongoing guitar magazine contributions, celebrity interviews, an instructional DVD, writing columns for Guitar World, and several new records on the horizon.
