  • Steve Lynch is an American hard rock/heavy metal guitarist, also known as The Two-Handed Guitarist, as well as a guitar instructor for G.I.T., which is the famous guitar department in the Musician's Institute, situated in Los Angeles. He decided to commit himself to music and the guitar the day of Jimi Hendrix's passing on September 18, 1970. In addition to Jimi Hendrix, Lynch's early musical influences came from late 60's and early 70's British musicians, such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and The Beatles. He originally played bass guitar, and Jimi's death influenced him to switch. Lynch gradually developed his trademark two-handed guitar shredding technique throughout the 1970s and into the mid-1980s. He finally reached national acclaim in the mid-1980s, when his then-current band, Autograph scored a hit with "Turn Up the Radio," which reached No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100. Lynch's work on this track helped earn him "Guitar Solo of the Year" honors from Guitar Magazine. He formed another band, Network 23, in 1990, shortly after Autograph had disbanded. He recently has started to release some of his instrumental guitar work.
