You sound like you love what you do, and have a great time doing it! I can hear the passion and emotion you put forth in every note! I'm glad I took the time to review this song, because it was a great listen! Thanks so much! TiffanyRae --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hey Obi! On behalf of all the guitarist on , I welcome you! It's nice to see more and more great guitarists on this site! I love listening to all the different guitar styles. It inspires me to write different things; your music in no exception, your musical talents are just as fresh as many other elite guitar 'virtuosos' on ! I look forward in excitment to see what new idea's you'll come up with! Until then! I'll be listening Bryan! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Obijuan : "Nasty" Initial impressions - Standard..............page - LOTS of info - Certainly seem to be an established and accomplished musician. Well I was ready to jump all over your introductory post claiming to be an 'explosive' guitarist.....but WOW! that is exactly the word that came to mind as this track blew out my speakers. To be honest when I saw the listed influences I thought 'Oh no....not yet another instrumental guitarist that's all flash and no substance.' I mean I am certainly impressed by the Vai and Satriani wannabes but their songs usually leave me a little bored. Lemme just say I was NOT at all bored with this one. That's a hell of a riff. And what I most appreciated was that the rhythm drove the song - you stuck with that killer riff and didn't add a lot of lead guitar Satriani-like noodling on top of it.

Nasty is high-energy, hot, and --well-- nasty, with just a little flavor of the exotic, like spring break on a sultry night in Cancun. RGB Lala goes to the opposite extreme, lyrical and melodic and with a clear Flamenco influence. Promising vocals. Free is a well-titled instrumental. Acoustic guitar back track with rhythm section and sailing fuzz guitar. Classic rock harmonically, with interesting tempo changes. Para mi Madre is (just as you'd guess) another song with heavy Spanish/Latin influence. Acoustic lead guitar over acoustic guitar and congas keeps it nice and mellow, but not without backbone. Boricua Fuego de mi Alma combines the Latin influence with progressive rock styles in an upbeat and aggressive instrumental with electric lead. Americrapp combines Canto style with rap and makes it work. The song is not offensive as the title might suggest. She Says is a snappy acoustic/pop song, and the best pr
