It does not surprise me to see that many youngsters cannot (yet) tell the difference between Greg Howe and some run-of-the-mill shredder.
Just so you know where I am coming from: I am not a metalhead. Many guitarists are very good, I am sure, but I don't listen to their music because they bore me. Most of them never quite seem to manage to leave teentown.
I know the stuff very well. Been there, done that, all-out, 30 years ago: had hundreds of LPs of everybody with a guitar loud enough to blow their Marshall's. The fact is, the metal genre has produced a lot of pyrotechnicians but, really, very few musicians. You can count them all in one hand.
Then comes Greg. This guy STANDS OUT. A real natural. Amazing sense of rhythm and a great melodic sensibility.
No wonder: his musical intelligence is routed through (primarily)jazz, fused in a Hendrix reactor, using Funk plutonium.
Greg Howe is a FANTASTIC MUSICIAN and really deserves to be noticed more.
I would like to see him sell more, doing what he does best, what is close to his heart, so he would not have to make the kind of "neo-classical" junk he did in _Ascend_ to pay his bills. I cannot imagine a smart, sensitive guy like Greg sincerely going for that crap.
Listen to this guy's playing if you want to refine your ears for music in its FONKAY METAL MODE.
If you know, or want to know, the alchemical secret of how music's soul--yes, soul--moves even through the heaviest metal, give this guy a listen.

I found one of Greg Howe's CD's on accident. It was this CD, Uncertain Terms. I've a pretty good collection of guitar instrumentals. This alblum was the most intense display of guitar playing I've ever heard. Greg excells at every aspect of playing. His use of legato and alternate picking is some of the best I've heard. Listen to track #7, Stringed Sanity, and you will think that Greg Howe is the best guitarist you've ever heard. He can plain out rip!!!!!

This is the one folks. For me, this one has everything that makes me be proud to be a musician. Theres a feeling of hightened musical inspiration and satisfaction that overcomes me all throughout this recording. Great rock/fusion groove material that is very pleasant to the ear. Once again though, the only downer is hes still using those electronic drum sounds on this one. Granted hes playing the drumparts himself. I still wish he had a real drumkit for this recording. Still this music sets him apart from most of the other "solo" guitarists in tone and musical quality. Get this before its out of print!!!!!

Greg Howe is one of those artists that at first glance seems to be 'just another big hair guitarist.' Then you start to really listen... and you realize, he's not just showing off a bag of tricks, but he's actually playing something that makes sense musically.

Some would compare him to Joe Satriani - I'd say he's better. He doesn't have the in-your-face theatrics of Eddie Van Halen or the short solo bombast of Steve Vai -- but he doesn't need them either. He can finger-tap and wah-riff and pitch-bend and feedback with the best... but with Greg's work, it all fits.

Russ Freeman of the Rippingtons also comes to mind... but where Russ tends to stay within the established paths of jazz-fusion, Greg isn't afraid to go offroad into heavy-metal arpeggios and fast passages and power chords either.

Gerg's playing appeals to the rock fans with his style, to the jazz fans with his composition. That's hard to pull off. Give a listen. You'll probably agree, Greg Howe is someone with serious talent and artistic sense, who so far has remained under the radar of the mainstream.

This album was a little more rock than I was ready for, but its cool. I can get with alot of the songs on here. Same old Greg. Shred'n the mess out of the guitar, but his solos don't feel very "soulful". (sorry, thats the best word I can think of, but you know what I mean). Gregs been do'n it so long that he can probably do it with out really putting himself in the song. The track all kinda' sound the same, but that is because GREG DID THE WHOLE ALBUM HIMSELF!!!. All instruments are Greg. A true testament to his talent, but maybe not the best thing for an album. Buy this to complete the collection, but you must buy Extraction
