Frank Gambale left his home in Canberra, Australia to study at the Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) in Hollywood in 1982 at the age of 23. He graduated with the highest honor, Student of the Year and was offered a teaching position which he kept for 4 years. During that time he was playing the local jazz club circuit with his own band and already had his first book "Speed Picking" published. In 1986 he signed a three album contract with a small label called Legato and began his recording career.† He has since authored many instructional videos and now, DVDs.
