Hearty felicitations and congratulations on your purchase of this Erotic Cakes Jamtracks package. Im happy to report that General MIDI and his Magic Band were in no way involved with the manufacture of these backing tracks: theyre remixes of the actual album sessions.

Wonderful Slippery Thing, 03:20.

Exclusive Prime pricing. Guthrie Govan is incredibly talented. His music is fluid and reflects an amazing musical vocabulary. I enjoy the sense of humor he shows through his music.

This album is simply fantastic. Guthrie is the quintessential "guitar-player's guitar player. Every song is as good at the last - you will not be skipping songs on this one to get to "a better song". I cannot recommend this album highly enough. Luciferadi, 06/13/2012. Guthrie Govan, what planet are you from?! I gave this album a first listen on my drive in to work, and almost ran off the road. I'm a huge fan of shred/instrumental rock and I listen to all the greats; . Vai, Malmsteen, Satch, all the Shrapnel guys, et. .

Erotic Cakes Solo Tips For the fusion-flavoured C section, try: Am11 - A dorian Amaj7 - A lydian Dm11 - D dorian Gmaj7 - G lydian You might also enjoy experimenting with some minor pentatonic stuff, moving from Am-G over those four chords

Only for completionists (2%). I have never eve seen the name Guthrie Govan in my life and the album's name, Erotic Cakes, only signed to the worst expectations and even more confusing was seeing Erotic Cakes' cover on the jazz tray of the store. To my surprise, whne I first checked it, the album was not only good, but was spectacular!

Maybe some of the best guitar work I've ever heard, and I'm a guitar nut. Guthrie slides between styles with ease and displays both pyrotechnics and a lot of heart. Most virtuoso guitarists leave me a little flat, because they sound like all-technique and no crazy... Guthrie has impeccable chops, but he has something to say as well. A rare combination. This disk has been on infinite loop in my player for a couple of weeks...

Check his work with Steven Wilson. Also check Shawn Lane, his association with Jonas Hellborg produced some of the best music ever.
