Tucker Muetzel – Guitar Teacher and Professional Musician
My name is Tucker and I’m a musician and guitar teacher from Pittsburgh. As a solo artist, I’m a folk and Americana singer/songwriter, but I also play bass in a pop-punk band and I’ve dipped my toes into many other areas of the music scene as well.
I’m currently putting together a semi-professional home recording studio which is expanding my knowledge on music technology and is also slowly converting me into a gearhead. I hope to share with you some information and insight from a fellow musician that will be helpful to you in your own musical career. Cheers! [Check Tucker’s music out on Youtube]

Chris Schiebel – Founder and Editor-in-Chief
My name is Chris and I’ve had a passion for music and guitars for as long as I can remember. I started this website with some of my friends who are music teachers and enthusiasts so we could help others find accurate music-related information. I’ve been playing guitar since I was 13 (over 15 years now) and am an avid collector of all thing’s guitar. Seriously, it’s a sickness (lol). Sometimes I sell and trade, but I mostly buy and collect. Amps, Pedals, Guitars, Bass, Drums, Microphones, Studio and recording gear, I love it all. I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania. My background is in Electrical Engineering earning a Bachelor’s degree from Youngstown State University and with my engineering experience I’ve developed as a designer of guitar tube amps and effects. A true passion of mine, I’ve designed, built, and repaired a wide range of guitar amps and electronics. Here at the Guitar Lobby our aim is simply to share our passion for gear with the rest of the music community.
