The first instrumental guitar album from acclaimed American guitarist Geoff Tyson. Geoff is getting back to his guitar-hero roots with an album of sounds ranging from blistering rhythm and solo performances, to production vibes that range from heavy rock, to 1980's Brit-pop. Geoff recorded and produced the album himself, drawing from his years of experience writing and producing for countless artists, and writing music for HBO, MTV, Disney, and the UFC. "Guitar was my first love," reflects Geoff. "I first met Joe Satriani when I was 13 and he helped to develop my passion for playing guitar. Satriani and I met weekly for about 2 ¬Ĺ years, and he became my mentor and inspiration, always challenging me to do something unique and personal. It's a lesson I have applied to all aspects of my musical endeavors. For my main instrument, I experimented with a variety of guitar brands, pickups, necks, and wood types. I eventually chose something that was definitely not a shredder guitar, but rather a hybrid that was a bit difficult to play. You can hear me struggling with the instrument on the recordings which I feel gives it a feeling of intensity. The rediscovery of the instrument was cathartic, and a big part of the artistic process." For this album, Geoff partnered with the great Czech drummer Eduard Step√°nek (Dymytry, Abraxas) and recorded it at home and at various Prague recording studios. Recording and producing it on his own gave him the freedom to experiment and get really wild.
