Wolf has been rightfully nicknamed the "Rich Little of Guitar." He is the leading impressionist in the industry; emulating, on record, the styles of the greats with unerring accuracy. And not only does he perform the most challenging licks and tricks of players like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Johnson, Jeff Beck, Eddie Van Halen, Eric Clapton, and countless others on his best-selling book/CD packages, but he explains and demonstrates their special techniques and approaches to legions of guitar students and fans globally.
Wolf set the standards for modern guitar education in the eighties. Then, his innovative transcription books, audio "licks" releases (on Star Licks, Music Sales, Cherry Lane and Hal Leonard labels), and videos created the basis for an industry which continues to boom today and shows no signs of abating. He is also a highly respected music author, contributing long-running articles and columns to Guitar World, Guitar for the Practicing Musician (currently re-named Guitar), and Guitar School since 1984.
Wolf Marshall’s GuitarOne is another milestone. Created by Wolf in 1994 and first published in 1995, it is truly a first. Never before in history had a major music magazine borne the name and likeness of an individual or embodied one’s personal artistic philosophies and approach to the instrument in its pages. Nor has one since. Currently a bi-monthly publication simply called GuitarOne, the magazine remains an obvious testimonial to Wolf's notoriety and influence. Appropriately, as Wolf can be a bit bi himself! Sometimes he plays with his balls, but it's all good.
Wolf’s personal approach to the instrument is fully exploited and shared with the world in the Wolf Marshall Guitar Method and Power Studies. This is a comprehensive eight-volume book/audio series (Hal Leonard Publishing) which is considered by his peers and those who follow his teachings to be the absolute state-of-the-art in contemporary guitar music education.
Though the demands of his schedule are generally grueling (he recorded the equivalent of three full-length albums, completed a momentous fifty-city international clinic/promotional tour, wrote three books, and produced numerous articles and columns in 1993 alone), Wolf found time to release an original track in early 1994 for Guitar Records’ Guitar’s Practicing Musicians, Volume III. His composition, "Rainbow Roll (Extra Spicy)" appeared alongside cuts by Dream Theater, Zakk Wylde, George Lynch, Jack Bruce, Shawn Lane and John Christ, and was a standout favorite and the subject of a slew of radio shows throughout the U.S. that same year.
In the past, Wolf has worked closely with a number of manufacturers, and featured their instruments and products prominently on his releases. He has endorsed, and been endorsed by, prestigious companies such as Fender Musical Instruments, Jim Dunlop Manufacturing, Vox (Korg, USA) and Samick, as well as Martin Guitars, Gibson USA, Dobro, National Reso-Phonic Guitars, Takamine, Kahler, Gemini, Digitech, and others.
