Like many of us, David started playing guitar in his teens. He went on to earn several advanced guitar and professional musician degrees from notable schools in France before emigrating to the United States in 2005 to pursue his music career.

While working in a coffee shop to “pay the bills,” David began offering backing tracks on his site GuitarPlayback.com. He soon began recording and performing with a number of bands, including Glass Hammer and Public Alchemy. David also became a popular instructor on JamPlay.com and TrueFire.com.

In 2013 he began teaching at Dweezil Zappa’s annual music camp. David continues to release his solo recording projects.

Today, David’s website and award-winning YouTube channel represent a popular brand empowering and inspiring thousands of guitar players to develop their own musical personality.

Learning new concepts can be quite a challenge. It’s easy to procrastinate or not even get started at all. If you can learn and have fun at the same time that is the best combo. David Wallimann has great way of teaching that keeps the ‘play’ in playing. Get ready to learn a lot and have fun in the process.” — Dweezil Zappa
