Albert Lee

Genre: Country

Country of Origin: United Kingdom (Great Britain)

Grammy Award-winning British guitarist, multiple recipient of Guitar Player magazine's "Best Country Guitarist" and celebrated by fans and musicians the world over for his hybrid picking technique.

Albert was born on December 21, 1943 in Shropshire before moving to and growing up in London. He was first introduced to music with the piano, taking lessons aged 9, before listening to the likes of Lonnie Donegan, Buddy Holly and Gene Vincent who inspired him to take up the guitar.

Playing as often as he could, borrowing friends' guitars, Albert was treated one Christmas to a Hofner President, his first very own guitar, and from there he never looked back. - Official Facebook Page
