Ulli Bögershausen (born 1954 in Brauneberg) is a German solo guitarist and guitar teacher. He is known internationally for his tours in Japan, America and Taiwan in 1995. He also authored several educational books for guitar playing.

Bögershausen started classical guitar music education at the age of 9. He played electric guitar in several music bands and further started academic studies for music teacher but did not finish.[1]

He lives with his family - wife and son - at the river Moselle near Trier, where he runs a music school for guitar playing.

Ulli Bögershausen prefers playing steel string guitars, which - by a more acute tonal differentiation - give complex melodies and rhythms improved transparency. He likes to use the long lasting, singing tune of that instrument as compositional element.

He is currently mentoring Sungha Jung, a teenage fingerstyle guitar prodigy.
