Gary Green (born Gary William Green, 20 November 1950 in Stroud Green, North London, England) is a British musician. During the 1970s, he was the guitarist for the progressive rock band Gentle Giant. Green was with the band from the debut album Gentle Giant all the way to the last album Civilian. Green's style was different from most of his peers, being a more "blues" based guitarist. Like his other band members, Green was also adept at other instruments, including mandolin and recorder among others. According to a 2008 interview, founding member Phil Shulman said that, despite Green's blues influences, he fitted in well with the band's progressive style since Green was "quick on the up-take."
Later on, he was a member of the band Mother Tongue, and also recorded on the Zinc – The Green Album album with Eddie Jobson.
In recent years, Green has been working with Billy Sherwood on a number of projects, including Back Against The Wall (2005) and Return to the Dark Side of the Moon (2006)
