  2. Six Essential Fingerings by Jimmy Bruno ·
    If anyone read my homepage they'll see that Jimmy Bruno was listed as an major influence on my playing. Studying with Jimmy for a few years, I was ahead of the game with his system on the scales and how to visualize the fretboard and it does me...(more)

  3. Tribal Tech by Tribal Tech ·
    I'm 100% in agreement with Chris's review. No argument from me. You can consider me a bonafide Tribal Tech nut. I had the opportunity to check them out live on the 20th of Sept. They played in a small club outside of Philadelphia. AWESOME!!

  4. Blues on Bach by Modern Jazz Quartet ·
    In honor of the great Milt Jackson who recently passed on, I feel it an honor to contribute to "wholenote" this great album. Milt Jackson, who as part of the Modern Jazz Quartet, epitomized the jazz form known at that time as "Third Stream". T...(more)

  5. Guitar Lore by Dennis Sandole ·
    This book, I refer it as my musical bible, is a well kept secret. Dennis Sandole, who was from Philadelphia, was the "guru" of theory/harmony/teacher during the 50's through the 70's. Anyone who was anyone in the music world, that lived in the...(more)

  6. Rock Discipline by John Petrucci ·
    This guitarist know his stuff! If there's anyone who is familiar with the group Dream Theater or Liquid Tension Disorder can concur with my feelings. His video takes you through numerous exercises: scalular, arpeggios, chordal etc. What makes...(more)

  9. The Official Dream Theater Web site ·
    My opinion is that when I get my own band and become rich and I'm doing clinics all over the world, I'm going to hire whoever does Dream Theater's website. They have a new Cd out now and their website background has change to the album cover. ...(more)

  10. Jazz Winds from a new Direction by Hank Garland ·
    This is a must get and a treat to hear how someone who only dabbled in the jazz idiom, crossed over from his country roots and blistered the jazz world with this great recording. Hank Garland was well known and entrenched in the country music s...(more)

  11. Liquid Tension Experiment by Liquid Tension Experiment ·
    This could be called one of those "super" group recordings. Three of the members currently make up the great progressive band "Dream Theater". Add the omnipresent bass of Tony Levin and you have something very very very unique. What makes thi...(more)

  12. Vital Tech Tones by Vital Tech Tones ·
    There's quite a few "super groups" recordings out there, some good, some,(thunder), not so(down under) good. (cough). Anyway, then there's Scott Henderson. He's matched up with some monsters on their perspective instruments and what you come ...(more)

  13. Solo by Badi Assad ·
    Anyone who is into classical guitar and folk guitar are doing themselves an injustice if they do not posess this amazing recording or spread the word on this amazing talent. If you're looking for something exciting, new, escentric, demanding fy...(more)

  14. Dvorak: Sym #9, Stravinsky: Firebird Suite by Kazuhito Yamasita ·
    This resource and the others that I input should be attached to my article on listening. This recording fits the bill on listening to something totally different if you're into something different than classical music. This recording was sugge...(more)

  16. Tore Down House by Scott Henderson ·
    Some more of that Scott Henderson......In past interviews, Scott always claimed to be a bluesman first. Not until this album do we really get a glimpse of his prowess in the blues idiom. To be quite frank............AWESOME!!!! His tunes on t...(more)

  17. Illicit by Tribal Tech ·
    Sorry Chris, this is my favorite. I almost forgot about this recording. I love "THICK", but since I'm in an angry mode of life, this one rules. LOL. Seriously, this recording has everything a guitarist needs and wants. Gary is awesome as is...(more)

  20. Live by Frank Gambale ·
    I have a question... How can someone be a technical master on his instrument, a theoretical genius, an established icon in the music/guitar industry but his music comes off soooooo annoying. I'm not a fan of Frank Gambale but I do respect his de...(more)
