“Matt Palmer has revolutionized the classical guitar world with his unique application of these scales.” 

    - Guitar International Magazine

"Matt Palmer is one of the most impressive guitar players I've come across. He has developed a very personal right-hand guitar technique using a combination of three fingers for four-note patterns. This technique has been worked by other guitarists in the past but Matt Palmer has taken this possibility to an ultimate level and the result is pure music."
