Biography

Monte Montgomery has taken the acoustic guitar beyond anyone’s expectations. With his amazing fretwork, unique combination finger and pick style playing through trailblazing “chordal” thoroughfares often baffling even the most accomplished players. While Monte remains a huge enigma in the guitar universe, his legendary reputation has spread like wildfire since he appeared on Austin City Limits. In 2004 Monte was named on Guitar Player Magazine’s list of “Top 50 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time” and in 2005 he was featured the Covers of “Frets” and “Acoustic Guitar” magazines. Countless articles have been written about Monte describing him “The Evel Knievel of Guitar”, “Six Strings Attached To Dynamite”, “The Answer To The Fermi Paradox” and “The Acoustic Shred Master” just to name a few. Monte’s fretwork has become the benchmark for acoustic guitar players. “An American Original”, there is no doubt Monte Montgomery is destined to become An American Legend.

In spite of all the “six-string notoriety”, and just in case you didn’t “know-tice”, Monte isn’t just a “guitar hero”, “shred master” or “guitar god” as he’s most often described. No, actually Monte Montgomery is much more than just a world-class guitar virtuoso with more new tricks up his fret board than your average “guitar slinger”.

    I've been in love with I See You Everywhere since I was 15. I just found it on iTunes and I'm in heaven. I'm on my 9th listen in a row.

    One of the best guitarists in the world hands down, and a great songwriter too. I've seen Monte live over 15 times, he does not disappoint. He gives it his all every time.
