In a time when the term guitar virtuoso is used often, few players stand out from the pack. Guitarist Bill Peck manages to do so with lightning fast guitar riffs, 8 finger tapping acrobatics, his rock band Exit The Ride, and some big name players talking him up. Creed/Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti had this to say about Bill in the October 2004 issue of Guitar One Magazine. The cool thing about Bill is that he is a legato, tapping, and whammy bar master These are very strong words from the top selling modern rock guitarist in years. Super shredder Michael Angelo Batio considered by many to be the fastest guitarist in the world, invited Peck and Tremonti to appear on his latest Hands Without Shadows. Bill's ripping solo on the Led Zeppelin classic Rock N' Roll shows his extreme chops and unique sound. With the seal of approval of guys like MAB, Rusty Cooley, and plenty of others, it is no wonder he is emerging as one of the new breed of shredders. At the age of 27, the future for the guitar mastermind is very bright. Peck's band Exit The Ride is putting the finishing touches on their debut EP recorded with Brett Hestla and Justin Thomas. The band has performed in all of the elite venues of Central Florida and most recently at the Florida Music Festival. Guitar One Magazine asked Bill to guest appear in the Return of the Shred column and showcased his mind boggling 8 finger tapping harmony techniques in both print and video. Dean Guitars, Dean Markley Strings, and Morley pedals are listed as proud sponsors. One listen to Peck and you can hear a range of influences including shred, rock, pop, classical, and country. Bill Peck is certainly a guitarist to keep an eye on in the changing rock guitar landscape.
