Get Out Of My Yard (2006)
4 Gilbert revisits his instrumental roots with stylish results. He skips strings with abandon during The Curse Of Castle Dragon before showing his versatility by skillfully mimicking Hendrix for Radiator. Elsewhere, the chiming Twelve Twelve is based around a lick twanged on a 12-string bass, while the creative use of a single delay repeat during The Echo Song is inspiring. The unique Three Es For Edward is a tapping extravaganza performed on an acoustic that boasts just three strings, each tuned to an E, and You Kids is built on a riff any rock guitarist will wish they’d written. Best of all, each song is dissected by Gilbert in a series of highlyentertaining online lessons.
