Solo albums[ edit ] Gambale graduated from the Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood with Student of the Year honors and taught there from to He spent twelve years as a member of Vital Information , led by Steve Smith.
His interest grew out of a desire to transcend the physical limits of the guitar and borrow from other instruments, such as the piano and saxophone. One advantage of the technique is that it allows him to play faster. He can also approximate the way chords are played on piano by using his invented tuning , the Gambale Tuning, in which "the whole guitar is tuned up a fourth , but the top two strings are down an octave " A, D, G, C, E, A, low to high.
Also, the 1st and 2nd strings are one octave lower. From low to high use strings from an electric 10 gauge standard set. Use only the A D G and B strings for the 6th, 5th, 4th and 3rd strings. The B string will be tuned up a half step to C. Then for the 1st and 2nd strings use a D and a G string from a standard 09 gauge set. These two strings are to be tuned up a whole step so the D will be tuned to E as the 2nd string wound, and the G will be tuned to A as the 1st string.
