The video — the latest clip to be posted on Gilbert's YouTube page — is a promo for Guitarfest in Chile, where Gilbert is a headliner.

In the video, the Racer X/Mr. Big guitarist starts off on the mandolin and eventually switches to his signature Ibanez guitar to continue to glorious shredding.

Gilbert also is hosting the G4 Experience in August, which he describes as, "more than a show, more than a seminar, more than a backstage pass." Attendees will give you inspiration and ideas that'll keep you playing guitar for years.

Gilbert will be performing, teaching and offering everyone who attends a chance to jam with him. For the G4 Experience, Gilbert will team up with Joe Satriani, Andy Timmons and Mike Kenneally.
