Trigger Fretmonkey Records ✪✪✪✪ ✪
GT readers know Jacob for his fine tutorials and backing tracks. With a huge social media following and evening job as Bryan Ferry’s touring guitarist, he sure is popular! His debut album, Trigger features 13 instrumentals. Opener, Science Of Traffic has a wealth of tones and playing approaches over a vibrant drum groove. She Zen is more laid back with a memorable hook courtesy of his whistling and guitar (solo is a tad Mike Oldfield)! Rise Of Silver has a strong EDM feel with electronic beats and effected guitars shuddering in stereo - Skrillex watch out! The big-groove-plusDelta-blues vibe on Glitch is tasty (killer shred licks too)! While he has mega chops, Quist knows that endless blazing on two-dimensional tracks has limited appeal. By focusing instead on solid beats, quirky melodies, good harmony and a multitude of stacked and effected guitars, his instrumentals will have a broad appeal. Check him out!
