Danny Gill

Danny Gill is, without a doubt, the most loved tutor by our community. With an incredible array of DVDs and web lessons for LickLibrary covering a wide variety of topics all of which he covers with incredible detail, it's no wonder he carries as much respect as he does.

As an ex student of Joe Satriani, Danny rose quickly through the ranks and found himself as a teacher at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Holywood where he stayed for 13 years, during those years he had his first record deal with his first band Hericane Alice on Atlantic Records), appeared on MTV, toured the USA and opened for bands such as Whitesnake & Skid Row. He then went on to record 3 CDs with Medicine Wheel, got to tour in Japan before joining Speak No Evil with who he released 2 CDs with Universal Records and opened for bands such as Megadeth, Staind, and System of a Down.

Now residing in Sweden, Danny still has a strong impact on the guitar world with his series of MI books and his ever expanding catalogue of LickLibrary DVDs

    The secret to Danny's teaching is his pace not to slow not to fast, and the relaxed laid back attitude he has to getting the lesson across, the best teacher with Licklibrary.

    By far the best teacher. Calm, methodical and instructs at the perfect speed.Technically, I've found his lessons note-perfect.

    I look for his name on the songs I want first.

    Agreed - this guy is really good. He'll play the lick and then go thru it at the right pace while commenting on how to play it correctly at the same time too.

    If this guy is the teacher for a lesson you are thinking of buying you won't have any problems following his instruction.

    Danny Gill is IMHO probably the best instructor at Lick Library....and that is not easy to say given that Stuart Bull is such an outstanding instructor as well, but Danny's explanations are just so easy to connect with that it makes learning almost effortless. He seems to always anticipate and answer the students questions, which is priceless given that we're stuck with learning from a DVD. His style of instruction is methodical, precise and presented at just the right pace.....my dream would be to have one on one lessons with him. I always look for one of Danny's DVD's first before buying....but then that's partly because I already have most all of Stuart's DVD's :-)

    by far the best, clean , concise , great pace. no meandering,( although a bad joke or two) . I hate the uber slow teachers. Seems like a nice guy , too.

    I also believe Danny is the best tutor on Lick library. He breaks things down slowly and explains clearly what he's doing. I have improved and continue to improve because of Lick Library and the quality of it's teachers. Danny for me though is the No1

    Hey Danny. Why don't you guys do an online lesson for Bark at The Moon? :-)

    Hi Danny, you nearly covered DIO!

    Now what about some "Hungry for heaven"?

    Thanks for great teaching dvds!

    Thanks Danny !

    I like all they teachers but do best with Dan Gill. Just the fact that he pieces it out and shows it slow and than plays it.

    There is a teacher that teaches Crossroads by Clapton. He is really good. But I wish he could do the song again like Dan does. He's all over the place on the lesson and chewing off too much of the song at one time. And a person loses track

    No disrespect to him at all. Thanks great teachers of music!

  • #18 (Tuesday August 04, 2015 @ 12:00 by mark satterfield)

    Best instructor I have ever learned from. Whether in person or online Danny explains and breaks down the guitar in simple terms that I can understand and apply. Thank you Danny for all that you do....

  • #19 (Thursday November 05, 2015 @ 01:14 by Rick Picard)

    hey Danny , was wondering if you could do Slash `s anastasia tune and snapits serial killer tune as well. i really enjoy the lessons i`ve learned from you, cant explain it but your way of teaching is working really well for me. thanks and i hope you can do those lessons and more on slash new and old stuff.

    Danny bleeds enthusiasm.When he teaches you can tell he adores what he is doing . He as one of those "wow" i can't believe what i do for a job looks sketched on is face. He's truly inspirational .

    Danny, I was wondering if you could do a nice version of the American national anthem, Jimi Hendrix style. There's a few tutorials out there but most are oversimplified childish versions! Thanks!

  • #23 (Thursday April 07, 2016 @ 19:14 by Guy)

    Hands down my go to person to learn from. He just gets how to convey the mechanical aspects like no one else.

  • #24 (Friday May 13, 2016 @ 01:25 by Shayne Robbs)


    You my friend area god! I find myself flipping through your lessons like I have ADD. Everything you do is so awesome it's hard to just pick one thing.

    Thank you!

    thank you Mr. Danny Gill for all the time you take with every lesson I feel you are talking directly to me and adding as much as you can to get through to me, and every video is very personable like you are in the same room talking to me like you know me and sometimes you make me laugh adding comments like what Hendrix was thinking during a solo or how the solo was written around a cord pattern. you some how answer all my question that I have wanted to know about how music is written or stimulate new questions I'm interested in> I'm a retired army veteran at home husband and father to a four year old who I owe it to him to learn to play guitar so I can guide him to play also as early in his life as possible, I started with your Dio and Judas Priesr & OZZY DVDs and enjoyed learning note for note all those leads that have burned into my soul for 36 years ever since I saw British Steel, Last in Line and number of the Beast in the 1980. learning a GNR Sweet Child O Mine was a Game Changer for me and lead me to have enough confidence in my self to finally study everything you have on Jimi Hendrix. (Still would like Black Sabbath the Dio Days if you can please)

    you are such a Kool person Sir!

    With the Guns N' Roses tour underway, I was wondering if you could teach how to play Wish You Were Here instrumental??? The way Slash plays it with Richard Fortus? Would be pretty cool, and you capture so well the Slash sound!

  • #27 (Thursday July 21, 2016 @ 05:04 by Jeffrey Woelfel)

    Down to Earth, ego aside Danny Gill is my favorite teacher. Also seems like a real cool dude. He doesn't jump to chords without showing the numbers and frets that make up the chords so you don't get lost or frustrated and lose interest!

    His patience allows his pace to be slow enough to teach a STUDENT. Too many teachers think they are teaching pros, We are not pros YET. But with Danny guiding us, many of will be!! Rock on Danny! keep up the great work!!

  • #28 (Thursday July 21, 2016 @ 15:13 by )

    I have been a member with Licklibrary for several years and I believe Mr. Gill teaches in a way I can follow. His slow pace helps me see the notes he is relating and I like his methodology and share his thoughts about a lot of the songs he teaches. All of the teachers at this site are really good. In the end I prefer Danny over all of them. Marcus-von

    cheers Danny you are the best teacher out there

  • #30 (Monday January 02, 2017 @ 22:44 by Jim Belaye)

    Danny Gill is an excellent musician and a great teacher.

  • #31 (Monday July 31, 2017 @ 07:01 by Jeffrey Woelfel)

    Been taking your lessons for years. You are to me the best online teacher.

    No complaints...only 1 big request..

    1. Can you play the entire solo slowly at the end of solo lesson on each lesson. Ex: Purple Haze and Voodoo Child. I have a tough time piecing together Hendrix and Iommi solos. They are so unique. TY Jeff Keep up the GREAT work!!

  • #32 (Monday July 31, 2017 @ 07:09 by Jeffrey Woelfel)

    In regards to my last post....Yes...we learn the parts(licks) of solo, but the phrasing(phrases) can intertwine and be difficult to assemble. I think you got my drift. Thank You Danny

    thanks for all the hard work on the classic albums loving it and learning so much

    Hey Danny you gifted old bugger lol ...Just a message from an even older bugger ...I dont know if you have ever listened to an absolutely brilliant rock album from 1971 called A nods as good as a wink to a blind horse by The Faces when Rod Stewart was just the singer in a band and when in my own humble opinion Ron Wood was kicking bottom !! If you haven't heard it do yourself a favour and give it a listen and it may just blow your little cotton socks off ...But if you have heard it why the hell have you not done a lesson on the track Miss Judy's Farm ?...if you have heard it and dont like it I would be ...Upset ... Sometimes us older guys can turn you on to something you have never listened to ..I doubt you will ever read this but I have had a wee Dram and I live in hope ..Regards Gibby

    After reviewing a lot of the other available DVD'S, I chose Danny Gill's for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I was impressed with Danny's scope of technique, different styles and the application of those styles. Secondly, his approach to teaching provides a comfortable yet thorough well thought out progression of advancement. I find his teaching to be as relaxing learning the more advanced techniques and styles as with the beginner or intermediate. He provides slow, medium and full speed examples which is a huge bonus when learning. Thirdly, Danny anticipates the myriad speed bumps and useless mind cluttering questions that can gum up the works when learning. Lastly, His approach to teaching as well as his command of the techniques creates a bond of trust as you remain equally impressed with his playing ability and his lesson curriculum. Thanks Danny ! ! Yowzuh a Bad Ass ! !

    I have learned more from this two dvd+s than all other classes or videos in my life, blues-wise.

    Thanks Danny you kick very serious behind. I own your dvds on Page and Hendrix and the are impressive. Your level at creating a lesson from the artist´s style makes a wonderful tool for learning beloved heroes licks.

    best tutor by far, takes his time and takes you step by step through every note, simplifying each song and making learning easy and fun

  • #39 (Sunday August 04, 2019 @ 11:30 by flyerdog)

    had the fortune of studying with Danny at GIT years ago...not only is he an incredibly gifted player, but he is also an exceptional instructor. Always encouraging and positive..with the ability to break things down into simple pieces that are easy to digest for students...So happy that I can continue to learn from him on Lick Library!!!
