It's been a long time since rock'n roll.
It's also been a long time since a new good instrumental rock album.
A few days ago I noticed Vinnie Moore released a new solo album in oct. 2015.
I don't read guitar magazines these days, so I believe I first saw it at Youtube.com
The album is called "Aerial Visions"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerial_Visions
The style is more rock, heavy, "folk", a bit blues. Not the old days neo-classical.
I have listen to the album the last days and like it a lot.
Many nice rock instrumental songs. Most of them sort of feel good songs.
Some of my favourites are:
"Faith", "Looking Back", "The Dark Dream", "Calling Out", "A Million Miles Gone".
Check some of the songs on Youtube.com or whatever you are using.
But remember to buy, e.g. mp3 files from Amazon.com.
"Faith" is my personal favourite, but the guitar solo in "The Dark Dream" between
03:45-04:25 is excellent. Have a listen at Youtube.com:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOsOAr4TlNA
"A Million Miles Gone" has som lydian stuff going on so a bit like Steve Vai, some parts.
"Now's the Time" has some mixolydian stuff, so a bit Satriani sound. Both these are good songs.
