Our regular weekly feature in which we'll share our pick of the guitar wonders You Tube has to offer. This week: David Grissom.

Grissom made his reputation as a hot session guitarist for the likes of Joe Ely and John Mellencamp, and has released a couple of solo albums too. A noted player of PRS guitars, his signature model - the DGT - is amongst that company's nicest designs, which is saying something.

Although the clip is obviously taken from the end section of a tuition video, this proves just how good he is. What feel and what a tone!

Simon Bradley is a guitar and especially rock guitar expert who worked for Total Guitar magazine and has in the past contributed to world-leading music and guitar titles like MusicRadar (obviously), Guitarist, Guitar World and Louder. What he doesn't know about Brian May's playing and, especially, the Red Special, isn't worth knowing.
