Guthrie Govan on Radio 1 with Dizzee Rascal!

As part of Radio 1’s Live Lounge Tour 2009, DJ Jo Whiley has hit the road to visit the homes of artists and bands who play live from their very own lounges.

Yesterday’s visit saw Jo head to rapper Dizzee Rascal’s humble abode for some stonking live versions of No 1 singles ‘Holiday’ and ‘Bonkers’, on which TG and ‘Guitar Techniques’ contributor and YouTube star Guthrie Govan performed some mean acoustic slide guitar!

Go to Radio 1’s Live Lounge page HERE to see incredible guitarist Guthrie and Dizzee in action!

In other Guthrie news, Govan and TG’s Senior Music Editor Jason Sidwell will be in Bath during October for a full-on rock guitar teaching weekend.

Held at Bath’s Bailbrook House Hotel, ‘Rock Development – The Essentials’ (17/18 October) will cover modern rock techniques, soloing/riffing approaches, how to sound like your icons and lots of band jamming!

It’s Guthrie’s only teaching date this year and places are going fast so visit or email GuitarBreak ( now!
