ANDY MARTIN - Brother From Another Mother (2002)

I'm a big fan of instrumental guitar albums, why didn't post one here 'til now?
Andy Martin is a technique master in two hands tapping, and one of the 7-string guitars pioneers .
Unjustly unknown, 'cos it's one of today's greatest guitarists.
Very melodic and harmonious phrasing, sharp and clear, not only pyrotechnics, a lot taste and expressiveness.
He can shred when he needs to but knows when to show restraint as well.
The good thing is that the songs are short and not boring at all, great songwriting.
Title track with Scott Childress guest on vocals (good song!)
If you like Satriani & Vai solo works, must have it.
If you don't, give it a try, this is a very good hard rockin' album.
