there are tweleve tracks of guitar instrumehtals here, and that's a lot of guitar, boy. but this is a boy who can play.
the first songs on the CD are Blues. Guitarboy's web site says that this CD includes " Guitarboy's No. 1 hits,: which must be the ones at the beginning. "Guitarboy's Boogie" sounds like Joe Satriani with a rhythm section playing ZZ Top. "Twice A Day" is a slower blues, while "Guitarboy Blues" sticks to the 12 bar stanard.
what sets Guitarboy's band above the crowd is GB's lead playing, which is as fast and clean as humanly possible. It is lucky that only the first four tracks are straight blues, because GB goes through a CD worth of riffs on them, using a bit of slide and a pierthora of effects." Love Is Hell" and "Double Feature" use funk rhythms, with the bass being more prominent. the bass and drums pretty much just keep the beat, Second guitarguitarist Andy Long mostly plays rhythm, but trades leads with Guitarboy on a few numbers, and they play together for a stretch on ''Wendy's Blues." This CD becomes more interesting as it goes on. It seems that Guitarboy is limited by just playing standard blues, this doesn't make sense if later you say he mixes stuff in especially on an instrmental CD. On the later songs, he becomes more melodic, and gets in to space rock a bit, "See, What Happened Wuz." uses a tape of conversations in the background
for an avant -garde effect. "Passion Borrowed" has an acoustic guitar for rhythm, while " This Time It's Different" includes a bit of keyboards. On all the later tunes, Guitarboy displays a mastery that mixes blues, jazz and a Hendrix-type sound for a different, soaring take on rock guitar leads, The whole CD shows a master player at work. - Dave Howell
