I have been nominated by Dino Alden to post 10 albums in 10 days that really made an impact on me.
I introduced to Vinnie Moore's music many years ago. My favorite thing about Vinnie's playing is not that he can shred the hell out of a guitar, but that he doesn't sacrifice the integrity of a song for the sake of shredding senselessly. His skills are absolutely top-notch, but his songwriting is even better! You will hear so many musical styles as Vinnie and his awesome group of musicians take you on a musical journey.
The Maze has definitely left an imprint on me as a guitarist. One of my favorite instrumental albums of all time for sure.
