CD Reviews

Another example of how Greg can do anything on the guitar!!!

"This album is amazing! The reviews that this album is neoclassical are innacurate. This sounds nothing like Yngwie. This album has a few neoclassical elements, but the sound is very progressive. Since when is La Villa Strangiato a neoclassical tune? Please!!! The first song is amazing. Only greg could play something like the beginning of the song, and still have it resolve into a tune that makes sense. Full Throttle is a heavy metal song at it's best, with Greg trading solos with his student, the amazong Prashant Aswani! This album shows that Greg can excel in writing and playing progressive instrumental guitar. Highly recommended!!!"
Greg still kicks butt

"Greg, a good friend of mine is still proving he's the best with his new Cd "Ascend". Once again teamed with keyboardist Vitalij Kuprij they rip it up on 8 GREAT songs. From his first self-titled Cd to this new masterpiece, Greg is still on top of the guitar world with his amazing feel, tone, and chops. If you wonder who the next guitar hero for the next century is, the look no further than Greg Howe and "Ascend""
Maybe the Best???

"I've always stuck with Satriani and Steve Vai. I never really listened to Howe, but knew he was a guitarist for Micheal Jackson for a while. Then, I unintentionally downloaded some of his songs with Kazaa. All I know is that this guy is better than both of them. Not better than both of them put together, but still. Sometimes, it gets that Yngwie Malmsteem sound when they do those keyboard and guitar duets. I've been playing guitar for 22 years now and would recommend this to every guitar player. Or anyone who's into Vai, Satraini, Hoey, and Malmsteem."
