Album Notes
Guitar Nerd is Pete Thorn’s first all instrumental guitar album set to release on May 30, 2011. Pete’s virtuosity shines through an eclectic mix of high energy rock and intricate melodic compositions. “The goal was to make a great sounding instrumental rock guitar record, with no compromises artistically or stylistically” says Pete. “I didn’t worry about what is “cool” or “not cool”, I just played a bit of everything that I like to play! In short, “Guitar Nerd” is a true reflection of me - I am (and always will be) a guitar nerd!” Guitar Nerd will be available at CD Baby and iTunes on May 31, 2011.

Guitar Nerd was written and produced by Pete and features three mixes from Grammy® Award winning engineer and producer Bob Clearmountain (The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams). Other artists appearing on Guitar Nerd include Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), Jon Button (Roger Daltry, Robben Ford, Sheryl Crow) and Jorgen Carlsson (Gov’t Mule) on bass and Blair Sinta (Alanis Morissette, Melissa Etheridge), Toss Panos (Michael Landau, Steve Lukather, John Scofield, Larry Carlton), and Dorian Crozier (Pink, Celine Dion) on drums.

Pete represents a new generation of talented LA session and touring musicians having performed with Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave), James Blunt, Jewel, Daniel Powter, Alicia Keys, and Courtney Love (Hole). Pete can currently be seen touring with Grammy® Award winning artist Melissa Etheridge. Pete has performed to millions of fans worldwide and is actively involved with millions of online users with his popular YouTube channel demonstrations for fine audio and instrument manufacturers including TC Electronic, Carl Martin, and Suhr Guitars. Pete is sponsored by EVH® Gear (Eddie Van Halen) and plays through the Suhr PT100 amp developed by John Suhr with input from Pete.

Excellent Instrumental Rock
This was my first purchase from CD Baby and it was a great one. I have been collecting instrumental rock for over 25 years, and Pete's CD ranks up there with the best. This is one fine instrumental rock albun. Thanks Pete.


Keep up the great work Pete
Your recording, mixing and mastering skills sound just fine to me on my AKG studio headphones and Yamaha studio speakers / subwoofer. The mixes are not cluttered at all and that's coming from someone who writes, performs, records, mixes and masters their own song material. To broadly label someone's mixes as "Cluttered" is more of a compositional criticism in my opinion, and I'd have to disagree entirely. Everything sits in the mixes nicely. Excellent guitar work and compositions. All the best to you.

Excellent jams, great mix!!
Reminds me of some of the best guitarists I know! Great picking, great licks, and great jammin'! The mix is outstanding! You have to consider the difference in the styles. With a rockin' jam that has a fast and hard rhythm guitar, it may seem to be a cluttered mix, but it is perfectly clear. Keep up the great work Pete! No doubt you don't resemble that photo anymore!!
