High Tension Wires
The Story
"High Tension Wires" was super-picker Steve Morse' first actual solo album, but also featured selections including other musicians to contrast the solo pieces. Many of the pieces are not as frenzied as a lot of Morse's other material, featuring a good amount of acoustic work, although the guitarist's blazing right hand can be heard on tracks such as "Tumeni Notes", a neo-classical metal rave. "Third Power" also contains examples of crunchy riffs, speedy fills and artificial harmonic embellishment. Overall, "High Tension Wires" does showcase Morse in his own element with incredible guitar work over some quite challenging original material.
