Larry Carlton has set a standard for the art of the electric guitar for over three decades.

Over his career, Larry Carlton has won four Grammy Awards for his performances and compositions. He has divided his recording time between solo recordings and session appearances with various well-known bands such Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Michael Jackson, Sammy Davis Jr, Herb Alpert, Quincy Jones, Bobby Bland, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and many others great musicians .   Carlton himself estimates that by the early 1980's, he had completed over 3000 studio sessions, covering a huge variety of musical styles. Since the 1980's, Carlton has focused more on his own recordings, and given up much of the studio sessions that he became so noted for.
Larry has also made a terrific contribution to students of the guitar worldwide. In several great free online Larry Carlton guitar lesson videos, the guitarist outlines his fundamental approach to playing guitar. Carlton has also released two excellent instructional videos, in which he further details his playing, geared towards intermediate and advanced level guitarists.
