AMS Exclusive Interview with Al Di Meola

A prolific musician and composer with over 20 albums as a leader to his credit, Al Di Meola was instrumental in bringing jazz, flamenco, Latin, and elements of true world fusion to the acoustic and electric guitar. From his time performing alongside Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, and Paco de Lucia to the numerous tours, projects, and collaborations, Di Meola’s music career has stretched over four decades! AMS spent some time talking with the virtuoso guitarist and his technician about their relationship with far-reaching global music styles, preparations leading up to a performance, and discussing the rig that fuels Di Meola’s characteristic sound - which includes Paul Reed Smith and Gibson guitars, Fuchs amplifiers, and pedals from MXR, TC Electronic, and Xotic Effects!
