I don’t do a lot of PDA on social media, but today is the day, if one is going to break that tendency. This man is a treasure and light... one of the kindest, wisest, most hilarious, brilliant, and beautiful humans I’ve ever encountered. So deeply grateful for you, @danielegottardo. Thank you for the amazing love and inspiration and adventures. ❤️✨📖✨#gnaggol #Pulcias #venice #valentine

Thank you so much to all who came out to the @greatamericanmusichall last night. What a wonderful audience at one of my all-time favorite venues! @danielegottardo and @beauxcheveuxband sets were both killing, and the love in that packed room was palpable. 💕🖤💕 📷: @garyclarkimages #zepparella

Excited for a hometown show tonight with @zepparellaofficial at one of our favorite venues, @greatamericanmusichall. Special guests @beauxcheveuxband and @danielegottardo start off the evening. 😻😻 Photo by @garyclarkimages #zepparella

So much love and appreciation for this dude... consummate rockstar, amazing musician, and dear friend. Thanks for letting me crash the stage with you again. 🎸🎸🎻🎻 @traciiguns 🤘🌟🖤 #traciiguns #laguns @laguns

Ever since I’ve been going to NAMM, my main hang has been at the @ernieball / @music_man booth. Always love seeing my musical family and their stellar instruments. And because some have expressed concern: I’m my normal size, and Music Man isn’t now making Silhouette Specials in size gianormous. This is just what happens when you lean back and extend a guitar toward a camera. 🤘😂 #ernieball #musicman #namm2018 #silhouettespecial

Sound checking with a hero and favorite human, @traciiguns, for the @laguns show tonight at House of Blues! #traciiguns #laguns

Thank you so much @engl_amps! Having me sign next to one of my biggest heroes was INCREDIBLY kind. Thank you for everything. 🙇🏼‍♀️@stevemorseofficial #stevemorse #englamps #namm

So excited to get to hang with one of my most enduring inspirations and heroes, @stevemorseofficial, at the @engl_amps booth at NAMM! Come by and say hi, if you’re around! 💙🙇🏼‍♀️

‼️😳‼️ This on @huffpost today. Huge thank you to Tara Low and @guitargirlmag for including me in this project. Extra cool to see my girl @malinamoye there, too, being her badass self 👑🎸! The whole article is available here:

My beloved @music_man Silhouette Special, as captured by @maxcrace. 🖤🎸

@traciiguns, this means more to me than I know what to do with. #hero 😱😭🤘🌟🖤 P.S. @laguns The Missing Peace is one of the best albums in existence.

Episode 2 of Muses and Musings is up! For anyone who missed the first one, my dear friend, @nilibrosh, and I often have long discussions about various aspects of being a musician. Our friendship often reminds me that I'm not alone in some of my insecurities, confusion, or general weirdness. We decided to get some of our ramblings on camera and invite discussion with other musicians. Here we talk inspirations and influences... and my cat Frances has a mental breakdown on camera. 😼 #musesandmusings @francesandferdinand
You can see the full episode on either Nili’s or my YouTube channels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCLXkZooShc&feature=youtu.be

Such a total pleasure to see the wonderful @jen_majura! I’m heartbroken I have to miss the show with @evanescenceofficial in San Francisco tonight (I’m playing at @sweetwatermv with @zepparellaofficial), but so lovely to meet for lunch and hang out a bit! So loving your new album, Jen!! #jenmajura #inzenity

One year ago today, December 12, 2016, my second album, Abandon All Hope, was released. During the process I worked with an amazing team— @michael_molenda, @maxcrace, @danielegottardo, @ugo_bolzoni, Kirsten Menn, @thinkwithmysticks, @salomepiano, Glauco Bertagnin, Matteo Marzaro, Alessandro Pandolfi, Giordano Pegoraro, Elizabeth Erickson, and many others. I learned more than I could have anticipated. I've become a more competent guitar player, a more confident composer, a better human being.
It hit me recently that I worked harder on this album than anything other single goal I’ve had. Flight school was a little over one year of my life. College I finished in three. From beginning to end, Abandon All Hope was almost exactly five years.
The goal was never to create deliberately difficult or obscure music—just to make my best attempt to honor the concept and do what was authentic to me creatively. But I’m well aware that an album over an hour in length of heavily composed, instrumental music is hardly a pop album.
I am blown away by openness with which it has been received, the support beyond what I could have imagined, from individuals and publications. Some of the messages people have sent are poetry in themselves.

Huge thanks to @vintageguitarmagazine, @guitarworldmagazine, @guitarplayer, @jude_gold on No Guitar Is Safe, @amps_and_axes, @guitarspeakpodcast, and so many others for having the interest in this project and for giving the music a wider reach.
And to every single person who has taken time out of their lives and money out of their pockets to hear it:

Thank you, thank you, thank you... from the bottom of my heart. 🖤

The November issue of @guitarplayer magazine! Huge thank you to @michael_molenda who entrusted me with his concept in what has been the most epic and expansive musical journey thus far for me with Abandon All Hope. I am deeply and eternally grateful. 😳🔥✨

Okay, so I have been nominated for Featured Artist of the Year with @vintageguitarmagazine. 😳😲 I'm beside myself... especially when I saw who else was nominated--heroes of mine and some of the most influential and accomplished guitarists on the planet: Steve Vai, Allan Holdsworth, Andy Timmons, Rik Emmett, Dan Auerbach. To be clear: I am NOT saying vote for me. I am not voting for me. I'm shaking my head and cracking up to even have my name in the same paragraph as any one of these incredible musicians. Huge thanks to Vintage Guitar and their readers/subscribers for this honor of which I am entirely unworthy. You all have made my year. 😂

Thank you so much @allthatshreds for the awesome review of Abandon All Hope! ✨🖤🙏

There's so much going on in this pic.... caption this! 😂@yvetteyoung and I will pick our favorite, and that person gets free download codes to our newest releases! 📷: @mach1andy

A new, original piece for solo guitar is now up on my YouTube channel. This is a live version of "Bures-sur-Yvette," a small town in France where I spent a transformative summer. It was initially released in conjunction with @vintageguitarmagazine, and I'm so very grateful for the support and opportunity they have given me! Thanks for checking it out! 💙 🇫🇷 Link in my bio. https://youtu.be/okH186qsGdo

Brand new posters by @maxcrace are in stock on my website! But what I'm most excited to announce is that every poster purchase generates donations for associated charities: 50% of net proceeds will go toward animals, kids, and disaster relief. More details on my site. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the support and helping some really great causes! 🖤🎶 gretchenmenn.com
