New guitar album release: George Lynch's Orchestral Mayhem - May 4th

This is specially good news for my guitar shredding friends out there. It turns out the great George Lynch (which some people claim invented two-hand tapping before EVH) has released this week a new CD: Orchestral Mayhem.

In this project, Lynch has followed an instrumental route. He recorded his own metal versions of classics such as Rossini's William Tell Overture, Beethoven's Für Elise, Tchaikovsky's Waltz Of The Flowers or Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, among other pieces. Although it's not exactly a new concept, it would be interesting to hear such a high quality guitar player try a different repertoire. It seems like the '80s are resurging these days, so I hope this album gets some good attention in the guitar community.

And here is a little of his great technique and metal soloing:
