Guitar shredder Paul Gilbert (RACER X, ex-MR.BIG) will release his new all-guitar instrumental CD, "Get Out Of My Yard" in Japan on July 26 via WHD Entertainment. The album will be released in America on August 29, while the European release is slated for September 14.
Commented Gilbert: "There is more concentrated guitar power on this CD than any I have done. More screaming solos, more thunderous riffs, more wall-shaking chords, more imagination, more passion, more, more, more!
"'Get Out Of My Yard' was recorded in Los Angeles. I played electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and bass. Jeff Bowders played drums. Mike Szuter played bass on tracks 8, 10, and 11. My wife Emi played piano on track 6 and Hammond organ on track 8. Tom Size engineered and mixed.
"The first 38 seconds of 'Get Out Of My Yard' are impossible to play. But I played them.'
