  2. Eat 'Em & Smile by David Lee Roth ·
    I would say this is a shining example of the genre-killer guitar, killer bass, and the ultimate hormone metal lead singer....I always liked this better then anything Van Halen <b>EVER</b> did-Eddie could never touch Vai, and Billy is way ahead o...(more)

  3. Fender American Standard Stratocaster ·

  4. The Tuck and Patti Website ·
    Tuck's corner is especially useful-descriptions and evaluations of various picking techniques, inspirational essays, and tone guides-definitely worht a look.

  6. Empyrean Isles by Herbie Hancock ·
    This album features incredible playing (of course) but what is remarkable is the sound of the ensemble. There is a definite lack of low frequency-the bass and piano aren't really trying to fill it up, yet somehow the sound is not thin and doesn...(more)

  7. Stain by Living Colour ·
    I don't know-I worre out 2 copies of their debut album, and one copy of their sophomore album, and I even dug Biscuits-this album was a bit of a let down..although it's not so bad for working out to, except for "Hemp"-(what was up with that, any...(more)

  8. Under The Table And Dreaming by Dave Matthews Band ·
    I am not a big fan of Dave Matthews, but I can't find much to complain about here-although it doesn't necessarily excite me, I appreciate his effort and the band's playing-I am thankful he broke away from grunge and wasn't the Backstreet Boys.

  9. Flexable by Steve Vai ·
    The playing here is incredible, if occasionally misguided-although I am not quite sure that I completely understand certain tunes, I think this is the best of Vai-quirky, unique, and adept.

  10. Musicians Management and Referral ·
    Wow, trhis website has BIG TYPE-I bet I could cover my left eye and stand 10 feet away and still read the bottom row.... Not bad, but apparently a smallish databse-non searchable by re3gion or instrument or date posted...

  11. Dunlop Stubby 2mm ·
    I suggest to every beginner that you go down to your local music store and buy one of each pick to check them out. You will learn what you do and don't like, and what you are looking for.

  12. Ride the Lightning by Metallica ·
    Quite simply, the pinnacle of the genre

  13. Rising Force by Yngwie Malmsteen ·
    One of my favorite shred/Yngwie albums. It gets a little old (and dated) after a while, but definitely a great example of shred...

  14. Jazz Jumps In: Swing This by Various Artists ·
    Don't let the K=Tel label fool ya-this isn't an album of greatest 70's love songs....but you CAN find it at Big Lots for about $3-that is a great price for this kind of musicianship and historically valuable music (for the price of 1 CD, you can...(more)

  15. Jazz Jumps In: Greats Of Bop by Various Artists ·
    Go to Big Lots and buy every album in this series. They are great recordings byu the stars themselves. Just do it.

  16. Roland JC-120 ·
    I looked at modeling amps, and some other classic amps (Fender twins and such)....but I chose this one. If it were stolen, I would get another. I may even get a JC-77 for smaller gigs.

  17. Absolute Benson by George Benson ·
    The sad thing is, Mr. Benson is so much better then this. He has got mad soul jazz/ hard bop skills, and instead he gives us more smooth jazz. On the other hand, the album isn't bad- just not- good.

  18. Reckless Precision by Tuck Andress ·
    For solo jazz guitar, Tuck is as good as it gets. I would say this is his best, although there is some really nice solo stuff on the other CD's and his duo stuff with his wife is great too. If you don;t have any Tuck, buy this one. If you don'...(more)

  19. It's Uptown with the George Benson Quartet by George Benson ·
    Now see, this is more like it. Killer playing, funky, jazzy awesome. This makes him the best thing since Wes, and hard to top since then.

  20. Duo by Charlie Hunter & Leon Parker ·
    It really isn't so amazing when you listen to it, until you realize it is only 2 people... Charlie must have 20 fingers on each hand, because he doesn't miss much- bass lines, chords and melodies all flow out!
