HAPPINESS IS...? - GAMBALE's Latest Single is OUT NOW!
With Special Guests - TOMMY EMMANUEL - VICTOR WOOTEN & RICK "Sahdrach" LAZAR. Video Director NIGEL DICK

“Writing music is my greatest love and melody is always the most important element” Says Gambale

“I’ve always wanted to play and record with Tommy since the first time I heard him play when I was a youngster in Australia. I’m so happy say that it has finally happened, he’s amazing and he exudes happiness”.

Gambale and Wooten have toured together on Gambale's Soulmine album and also with Chick Corea and the group Vital Information.“Victor is by far one of the funkiest bass players on Earth. His groove and feel and where he places the notes are a constant delight to my ears” says Gambale.

Percussionist Lazar recorded on Gambale’s Soulmine album as well as his work with World Beat Jazz Ensemble “Montuno Police” and Samba School in Toronto. “I wanted to use percussion, lots of overdub percussion instead of the drum kit for a softer touch. Rick played so many incredible sounding hand drums and items many of which I’ve never heard of! I used almost every track he sent me, fantastic and perfect for the song”.

Gambale’s infectiously happy, feel-good song inspired Nigel Dick to procure people happy and dancing from all corners of the world. “Nigel is amazing. He weaved so many disparate pieces of film into a string of joy where the emotion of my song is presented perfectly. Nigel even got a guy to dance with his camel in the Sahara Desert! Now you don’t see that every day! Brilliant!”.

HAPPINESS IS...? Written and Arranged by Frank Gambale

Hi-Res WAV file audio plus Transcription TABs, Jam Tracks and Guitar Pro file for Happiness Is...? is available now at Frank's guitar school.

The beautiful new Frank Gambale Luxe Nylon acoustic in collaboration with Cort.

Frank's design aesthetic and playability have merged to create an absolutely perfect guitar.

The Art Deco influence is present once again continuing on from the Luxe steel string. The innovative inlays and rosette around the soundhole with the triangle inlays echoing the fretboard inlay is a unique by Frank. The neck is narrower than tradition nylon classical type guitars so the playability is much easier. The Fishman pickup sounds fantastic and the Australian Blackwood top, back and sides are all solid woods for maximum resonance.

From Gambale's Thinking Out Loud album


Gambale is one of the most-respected innnovative and visionary guitarists on the planet. Gambale had 60 guitar students when he was 16 years old. He has a teaching style that makes even the most complex concepts easy to learn. His video courses touch on subjects that are unique and complete.

Your playing WILL improve!
Your knowledge and understanding WILL improve!
Your confidence in any musical environment WILL improve!

Frank's mantra is KNOWLEGDE IS POWER!

Gambale says "Don't believe for a moment that is you learn theory you will play jazz!! That's just plain ridiculous. A strong knowledge of music theory presented in a logical and methodical way will definitely improve your musicality and stimulate endless ideas. Think of theory as colours nothing more, theory knowledge gives you a huge colour palette".

Gambale also says "Don't believe for a second that if you learn harmony and theory and studying music you will lose you feel!! Ridiculous. If you have a pulse, and you're human and have a heart, you will never, repeat, never lose your feel!".

Cracking The Code

Frank Gambale has made paradigm-shifting contributions to the technical development of the guitar.

As a picking motion, sweeping has always existed somewhere in the guitar consciousness. Tal Farlow, Joe Pass, George Benson, even Django have all used it. But Frank gave it structure: odd numbers of notes on each string allowed you to keep moving in one direction, and even numbers allowed you to turn around. Suddenly, it was no longer just instrument technique. It was engineering applied to guitar picking mechanics.

Check out this one-hour interview with more than 100 musical and technical examples featuring slow motion video and tablature, including both of Frank’s epic intro and outro solos.

Here's a preview!


"Target Tones" is an approach to improvisation that Frank continuously uses.This concept is a very powerful tool to help guitar players get to the next chord on time, while also making clear which note of a scale to shoot for on the chord change.

Every chord-type has a different scale that can be played over it. This course helps guitar players decide which notes sound the most pleasing to the ear - to use as "target tones." An understanding of which notes sound best on all chord types can help a musician find his/her own style of playing.
