As previously mentioned, if you're looking for the usual Lee Ritenour fare, pass this one up. But if you're looking for one great guitar collection that spans a gamete of musical genres you may find it all well within this one CD. A must have for guitar players and guitar fans alike. Just buy it.
If for no other reason, this got me because of the two songs Keb' Mo performed on--"Am I Wrong", where Keb' works a duet with Taj Mahal, and the magnificent "Why I Sing The Blues", where Keb' shares lead vocals and licks with B.B. King, Vince Gill (Vince's solo reminds us how good and nasty he can get with an ax) and Jonny Lang. "Why I Sing The Blues" has always been considered a B.B. staple, but this version just SOUNDS like it was too much fun.
Highly, highly, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
LEE RITENOUR FOR PRESIDENT! :)

Lee Ritenour has assembled some of the best guitar players on the planet - the idea to get together and have FUN...
No specific style here fusion, blues, post bop jazz, melodic rock, classical guitar all in evidence 😄👍😎🎸
Great album !!!
6 String Theory will bring out the very best in a HiFi system & then some! & I agree completely with the other 3 reviewers opinions on this fabulous work.
Avoid buying & you will be missing out on a real treat for the ears!
have all of lee's albums, somehow, miss this one, but very glad to find it on amazon,
also from a US supplyer with a good high quality copy, sound better than European copys.
