Collection: The Shrapnel Years
Vinnie Moore has set new standards in high performance guitar playing during his 20 year career. The highlights of his progressive compositions and phenomenal solos are included in this riveting CD package - "Collection: The Shrapnel Years". Moore writes, "Seems like just yesterday I was on a plane to San Francisco to record my first record. One second I was a 20 year old kid from a small east coast town practicing guitar all day long, and then suddenly I am recording the soundtrack for a Pepsi TV ad, releasing a solo CD, winning awards in guitar magazines, and doing guitar seminars all over the world. It was just a magical time for me. At 21 I found myself in a position where I was an inspiration to others and this was simply a dream come true. Throughout my career, hearing that I have been a positive influence has remained one of my biggest rewards."
