George Bellas - God's Garden
Genres: Neo-Classical Metal Release Date: 1/8/2011
Despite my fondness for the genre, this is the first song I've stepped by a solo neo-classical guitar shredder. George Bellas is one of the best of the genre, fusing lightning-speed playing with a great sense of melody. This song is one of my favorites by him; all of the neo-classical guitar wizardry you expect, but with a Mediterranean flair as well. The song is slow but the steps are anything but. Plenty of 32nd note runs to keep your fingers in shape, and there aren't any jump-runs this time around, so you can joyfully mash out those streams without having to worry about stray jumps getting in your way. Enjoy!
