Myles Kennedy

Year Of The Tiger

Guitar Techniques - - LEARN­ING ZONE -

More ac­cus­tomed to ex­er­cis­ing his mon­u­men­tal vo­cal cords both in front of Al­ter Bridge and along­side Slash, any­one who’s stud­ied Myles Kennedy’s gui­tar skills will find an ac­com­plished player who ex­udes emo­tion. While his first solo al­bum di­als down the crunch it’s far from a stripped back acous­tic set. Here bois­ter­ous strum­ming, Mid­dle Eastern pick­ing and ex­pres­sive leads on the soaring The Great Be­yond, and the sweet Amer­i­cana of Ghost Of Shangri La form the perfect back­drop for Kennedy’s once-in-a-gen­er­a­tion voice. An ode to his late fa­ther, Year Of The Tiger drips with pas­sion, in­ven­tion and cu­rios­ity. We like it a lot.
