Eric Gale

Eric Gale was a top studio guitar man, and a first call session player on many dates from the '50's through the '90's. His reliable accompaniment can be appreciated on scores of records as a sideman, and through his own efforts as leader.

Born Sept. 20, 1938 in Brooklyn of Barbadian parents, Gale studied chemistry at Niagara University. He took up the double bass when he was 12 years old and also played tenor saxophone, trombone and tuba before he chose the guitar. The basis of his style was formed on the 50s and 60s R&B circuit.
