ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
14 tracks of instrumental action in bold stereo. Hard rock!

Hark and behold, there's more than just flashy riffs and exploding solos. Full of strong melodies and rhythms, energy, joy, feelings and emotions it is. Versatile instrumental music, a mixture of influences and styles. This album is virtually a musical cinema and a true headphone experience. In general the compositions are simple in the core, but the melodies and textures on top make the music colorful and vivid. You can hear influences from 80's hard rock -sounds to progressive rock. From Worldmusic and film scores. Only for the strong at heart!

Total running time 50 minutes.

Simply Amazing
This CD is one amazing compilation of every emotion a human being should feel. It is great. It is not just guitar shredding and melting faces and all that jazz. Not at ALL! This album's architecture was made in such way that one can get in touch with the inner self in a very positive way. This CD from the moment you click play, radiates a positive vive to the listener (at least for me) and puts the listener in a joyous mood with the guitar spice. Even when It is a fast-paced-aggressive song, I feel aggressive positively. I feel like I can over come any obstacle with that dtermination. I have never written a review for a CD but I am doing it for this one. It is the best money I've spent in a long time. Amazing Music.

Thumbs Up
You've seen his web site!
Now buy his debut album!

From full shred guitar to smooth mellow sounds.
His playing covers all ends of the spectrum.

Mr. Fastfinger has great command of the guitar.
You can definitely hear Van Halen, Steve Vai, and Joe Satriani influences in his playing.

Bottom line: This album rocks!
If you are a fan of instrumental guitar, I highly recommend it.

ONE OF THE BEST INSTRUMENTAL ALBUMS I'VE HEARD
There is a lot to say about this CD, beeing apart of the influence of Mika and Mr.Fastfinger, there's more on the go! The First impresions I have about this album, 1. YOU MUST HAVE IT, it's not only one of the best instrumental guitar/shred album's i've ever heard, the album is a pallette of musical textures, all diferent kind of moods: Fun, Spiritual, Fun, Kickass rock, Fun,Oriental, and also serious guitar shred killer licks, comparing to other Albums, this one is whole lotta different, it feels like a group work , not showing who's the best shreddin'their instrument, like i said, it sound like a real group, I just love this album. Sometimes it has an oriental/chinese kind of sound , and also there are like ballad/type songs with the guitar screaming and singing great gimmicks. I've been fan of Mr. Fastfinger since he lauched his site, and trust me, this is Cd is AMAZING!

This guy is amazing and really original
This is a must have CD for anyone that appreciates good music and especially anyone that plays guitar.There is alot of people that can shred, but to deliver soul and feel AND shred is much more rare.Mr.Fastfinger has alot of depth to his music, and alot of emotion and this disc delivers a awesome variety of colors.I can't say enough about this cd.This is the best cd I have bought in a very long time.

creative
I was curious about this guitar player and expected a fast shredding album. But i must say i was pleasantly surprised by the creativity an different style of songs on this album. It stands out from most albums and i am curious about the next one.
