PAUL GILBERT – ‘BEHOLD ELECTRIC GUITAR’ New album from master guitarist out May 17, 2019 on Music Theories Recordings

 

Paul Gilbert returns to Music Theories Recordings with Behold Electric Guitar, featuring 12 new original songs. Most songs are instrumental, except for his poem, “A Herd of Turtles”, where Paul opted his best Liverpudlian accent to recite his poem of hope, and inserted some ferocious funk riffs for musical contrast in between.

The songwriting process on Behold Electric Guitar is interesting, and not what you would expect from a virtuoso shredder like Paul.

Paul started most of the songs by writing lyrics first. Then the melody, with the right chords, arrangement and groove is formed. And then the lyrics are translated to a guitar melody, completely tossing out the lyrics. The result is Paul’s most expressive and inspired guitar playing to date.
