Bert VerschuerenBert Verschueren, aka, Guitar Hero- All Guitars and Guitar Arrangements

Bert Verschueren has a Master's degree in classical guitar from the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp in Belgium. It is there that he formed the guitar quartet 'Quadrant'. They have recorded several CD's, including his compositions and arrangements. Quadrant made concert tours in Belgium and Holland, Germany, Spain and even Thaïland.

Although the classical guitar is his professional education, his heart goes to the rock guitar heroes like Ritchie Blackmore, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, etc... Inspired by them, Bert formed his own band Miran May. Polygram Records signed the band to a record deal, and his career as a multifunctional guitarist ànd songwriter was launched. He was engaged by Polygram (now known as Universal) to join the songwriters team to write for international artists.

Bert has evolved into the in-demand studio-and session player, and has recorded numerous CD's, and performed on many international TV shows. He has made concert tours with such artists as Vaya Con Dios, Shirley Bassey, Tavares throughout England, Canada, U.S.A, France, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, South Africa, Egypt, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Austria, etc.. Bert has also mastered other string instruments and styles from around the world such as the banjo, the mandolin, the ukulele, the slide- and lapsteel guitar.

Bert's invaluable contribution to guitar arrangements on ClassicalRock has given the recording its authentic sound and rock integrity.
