You really don't realize how smooth his technique is until you see him in person...

Nice Fives video too dude, it's just a shame that Guthrie doesn't have any plans to tour the Erotic Cakes stuff again any time soon...



Oh and I neglected to mention the jazzed up version of Billie Jean they did...with rap solo by the guy who was playing keys...funny shit.

How would you describe Erotic Cakes; shred, Jazz-Fusion, a bit of everything?

Does he only have two books out (the creative guitar ones)? Or has he written more?

EC is pretty shreddy, a fair bit jazzy-flavoured but not very jazzy, and definately a bit of everything.

Regardless... He is the UK's best

Myspace

Check him out, get his album Erotic Cakes


He blew his wa*8 pretty much on that one album too but he even said himself that he re wrote that album 30 times and re did it over and over and over over 20+ years until releasing it. Talk about really digging in and getting your point across. Does the next album comeout in the year 2043 then? LOL! Im sure wewill hear more soon. Just go to Youtube and it shows him jamming over backing tracks of all styles. great flowing chops . a bit over playing at times. but if you got it. hey let it shine right. Just good instrumental music thats it! really good . I like him . He is right there with satch and vai i think or close any way. Just not put in the same time or the same amount of touring albums such things. He teaches out of California I thought with Greg Howe at Tone Merchants or the UK where hes sfrom. I like those COrnfords too. Id like to try one some time even though im a VIntage Mashall player. It has the UK brit tone thats for sure. the CORNFORDS to me sounds like a welll tuned super fast picking attack 1981 JCM800 with an OD1 pedal to thin out the tone a hair and then pump the lows and chunky mids when needed. great amp. I seethem o FLea bay . I hear that Ritchie Kotzen model is a nice one to get. that and a Blackface 66 reverb would be a nice setup..

I run a couple of Marshalls that I AB/Y between. One Non Master Volume and one Master VOlume

I would say EC is jazz-fusion but only because it's too jazzy to be rock and not jazzy enough to be jazz. Jazz lines and some jazzy songs but it's more like a Vai or Satch album in that it has more in common with rock at it's heart than real jazz fusion.

And there are only 2 Creative Guitar books.

I don't think EC is anything close to jazz fusion at least when compared to his Fellowship stuff.

yeah I agree but EC is so hard to catagorize as it has rock (fives and sevens) jazz (wonderful slippery thing) i'd just call it a fusion album, it has soo many catagories =]

True indeed but it does share a lot of things with jazz that a standard rock album doesn't have, however I did say it's more like a Vai or Satch album in that it has more in common with rock that real fusion but it's too jazzy to be just "guitar based rock"

Why not just put it under the genre "instrumental"...could even say guitar instrumental if you want since guitar is the main component.

^Instrumental Guitar is too broad of a way to describe an album/artist. Jeff Loomis's Zero Order Phase sounds nothing like Adrian Legg's Guitar Bones...

Erotic Cakes?

It's 'instrumental rock'. Nothing more, nothing less. Anything that has guitar and even the most basic drum beat is instrumental rock to me. If there's no drums but any other instrument, I call it 'instrumental'. I don't recognise genres like 'guitar rock', 'shred metal' or anything specific like that.

However, the point at which it becomes fusion is when the guitarist chooses to use weird-sounding phrasing a LOT - so far only Holdsworth, Gambale, Lane and perhaps Howe fall under the jazz fusion category for me. Guthrie isn't even close. Nowhere near being a fusion player, if EC is all we're going by.
