Scott Goldberg


I’ve been playing guitar for over fifty years. I’ve also owned and operated a recording studio for over 30 years. I’m a junkie for playing with top notch musicians and I’ve been blessed to play with hundreds of world class and world famous musicians. I’m also an artist for Gibson, AVID, and Mesa Boogie. I’ve scored a movie for Lionsgate and I have my own band that plays and tours Northern California and beyond.

More emphasis on performing without the aid of electronic devices that do things like sequence.
