Tracy G. is a rare talent. Not only is he an exceptionally intense guitar player, he is a rare composer and producer. His latest project (the bands second release) 'Erector Pili' under the moniker, The Tracy G. Group gives a whole new meaning to instrumental intensity. The songs are very well thought out, not the endless repetitive licks you hear from so many others. I've always loved Tracy G's guitar playing. His sound is unique and very inventive. Rarely do I find that the title of an instrumental coveys something meaningful about the song itself. With Tracy G, you can almost understand why he titles his songs as such. The compositions on 'Erector Pili' show Tracy's clear mastery of every technique involving the electric guitar as well as his fascination of combining dialog from classic movies, as displayed on 'Out Of Respect' where Tracy uses the dialog from the classic mob movie, 'Goodfellas'. On tracks like, the adrenaline pumping, 'Finger Fuzz' and 'Knucklehead' Tracy displays a clear melodic intensity and integrity that makes the compositions come to life. They tell a story which is so difficult to convey via instruments alone. If you listen carefully you can almost feel what he is trying to say with his guitar, especially on the bluesy charmer, 'Celtic Sea'. He is incredibly passionate and expressive. But enough! I could go on and on. He is one of my very few guitar heroes. 'Erector Pili' will blow you away. Tracy G is an insane guitar player. One of the greatest guitar playing I've ever heard. It just blows me away that he doesn't get the respect and recognition that he truly deserves. Overall, 'Erector Pili' is a tremendous effort by Tracy G. If you want to hear a guitar played better and more creatively than you've heard before... check out Tracy G. Nothing can be said: you have to hear this guy to believe him... His tones, compositions, notes, chords. Tracy G is doing stuff that nobody else can do. Moreover, he does it in diverse and entertaining ways. You will enjoy each one of these very different songs and marvel at how unique each song is. You will appreciate the talent that went into making them and you will marvel at how a man can convey so much emotion with six strings. And when the CD is done playing, you will just wonder... what planet is this brilliant guitar player really from.
