DESIREE BASSETT FANTASTIC YOUNG GUITARIST AT 18


The Amazing Guitarist Desiree Bassett!

Have a great musician to introduce to my readers tonight! She is Desiree Bassett and she is 18. Desiree is a kick ass guitarist and all the rock legends are her FANS..... Check her out with Uncle Ted in this video....



Desiree is the lead guitarist for the Cirque Du Soleil Michael Jackson Immortal Tour coming to Detroit Oct 15 Joe Louis Arena





I spent a few hours chatting with this fabulous stage and film director Natasha yesterday and she turned me on to this talented guitarist. Thanks so much Natasha! Stay tuned for my story on Natasha's exciting Rock Opera project....




Bassett was born in New Haven, Connecticut to Daniel and Myrna. At 2 years old, Bassett was encouraged by her parents to start singing. She started playing a half-size Lotus guitar at 3, and by the time she was 5, her father was teaching her on his ’83 Ibanez Roadstar II. At 8, she played her first competition at the local fair grounds playing Joe Satriani tunes coming in second place.

At 9, she began taking singing and guitar lessons at the University of Connecticut music program. From there, she began to learn all she could about guitar. She discovered that she could both tune and play by ear. In addition to study, Desiree’ was listening to blues and rock music from the 50’s through the 90’s, being influenced by artists such as Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, Rick Emmett, Jimi Hendrix, Reba McEntire, and The Allman Brothers.
