Guitar Hero, Rock Band & Beyond…
Signed to Steve Vai’s Favored Nations label, Doug Doppler is a certified Guitar Hero. Doppler’s tracks can be heard on Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80’s (2007) and Guitar Hero on Tour (2008). On Tour is the first GH game to be released on the Nintendo DS platform, and sold a whopping 300,000 units the first week. Fast forward to 2009 and you can add Rock Band DLC (downloadable content) to the list of Doppler’s video game accomplishments. With one key difference – now gamers can rock out to “Grind” taken from “Nu Instrumetal”, Doppler’s Favored Mations release.
When Doppler is not in the studio he spends his time on the road touring as the support act for the likes of Gilby Clarke (Europe 2006) and Michael Schenker (US 2007, 2009). Doppler’s travels an international artisclinician for Ibanez guitars have taken him to Italy, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and in 2008 a clinic tour across mainland China.
A former pupil of guitar guru Joe Satriani, Doppler inherited the Berkeley, CA teaching studio where Satch also taught the likes of Metallica’s Kirk Hammet (whom Doppler referred), Testament’s Alex Skolnick, and Primus’ Larry LaLonde. Keeping in his teacher’s footsteps Doppler has taught thousands of people the art of guitar mastery and continues to do so via his internationally acclaimed Guitar 411 instructional DVD series. Look for the 2010 release of Get Killer Tone.
Doppler’s press accolades cross the globe and include Guitar World, Guitar Player, Guitarist (UK), Australian Guitar, Guitarre Live (France) and Guitar Club (Italy).

In Doug's words:
"I created Guitar 411 so I could reach guitarists beyond the immediate area of the Berkeley, CA teaching studio I inherited from my mentor Joe Satriani. We all are called to do something with our lives and teaching is something I still love to do in addition to making records and touring (please visit my site for more info). My method draws upon the 3 1/2 years I spent studying with Joe, the year I was at GIT, and 20 years since then teaching SO many students. I take what I do seriously as the chances are you love the guitar every bit as much as I do, which means I have a huge responsibility to make the most out of the experience for both of us. The better my students get, the better I become as a teacher, and in turn the better the experience is for each of us!"
