Guthrie Govan (born 27 December 1971 in Chelmsford, Essex, England) is an English guitarist and instructor, known for his work with the bands The Aristocrats, Asia (2001–2006), GPS, The Young Punx and The Fellowship, as well as Erotic Cakes (a vehicle for his own music) and Steven Wilson more recently.

He is a noted guitar instructor through his work with the UK magazine Guitar Techniques, Guildford’s Academy of Contemporary Music, Lick Library and currently the Brighton Institute of Modern Music.

He is the 1993 winner of Guitarist magazine’s “Guitarist of the Year” competition.

I'm Joost Nusselder, the founder of Neaera and a content marketer, dad, and love trying out new equipment with guitar at the heart of my passion, and together with my team, I've been creating in-depth blog articles since 2020 to help loyal readers with recording and guitar tips.
