Album Notes
Guitar heroes are back. Witness the rise of bands like Dragonforce, and Avenged Sevenfold. Notice that all the guitar magazines are again focusing on awesome chops. Is this CD responsible for turning the tides? Maybe...

This was Clark Colborn's first release as a solo artist, and for some bizarre reason he was talked into not using his actual name. Even his live band performed as "Clark Plays Guitar" for many years. In fact, his website still bears this name - and is definitely worth a visit:

Clark Colborn has been hailed as a great guitarist fora very long time & this CD proves he's got the goods. Ripping solos. Driving riffs. Melodies that move your soul. Tone that makes other guitarists weak in the knees. It's all there. Click on the sound samples & check it out. Then order one for yourself and one for the guitar fan in your life. You'll be glad you did.

Thank you Pandora!
I discovered this guy on Pandora and had to come right over and get the CD...definitely a much-needed new force on the guitar instrumental scene. Excellent.

My only suggestion? How about a live backing band for the next album? The electronic drums sound a little....electronic. But the songs are still terrific!!!!

Josh from Chicago

Satch &Vai got some company
Clark Plays Guitar, eh? Yeah, along with 61 million other guys, but here's the thing: this CD freaking ROCKS! The first track sounds like Brian May crashed into Satch while they were on Mars or something. The rest of the CD has everything from hard & heavy to weird but interesting. I've been waiting for ages for another guitar hero to show up & here he is!

Leslie Faul

fabulous -- worth every penny
This CD brings back the feeling of live rock bands and late nights at clubs listening to great music. I especially like tracks 4 (Stainless) and 7(Smoke and Mirrors). It's early Van Halen without vocals.

Steve Gunderson

I'm all about high energy, and this CD blows me away! I love SMOke and MIRRORS for its drivin' base sounds - when's CD 2 coming out?

Ed Patterson

This CD rocks!!!
Blues are where its at and Papa dont drink that hooch smacks up side the head with it. Other pickers are gonna have ta stand in line behind this dude.

Matt North

Finally someone plays what us guitar heads want to hear. I'm loadin up on this one, too bad Christmas is past.
