Must Have Guitar Albums - Marty Friedman - Dragons Kiss

1. Saturation PointListen
2. Dragon MistressListen
3. Evil ThrillListen
4. Namida (Tears)Listen
5. AnvilsListen
6. JewelListen
7. Forbidden CityListen
8. Thunder MarchListen

Cacophony guitarist Marty Friedman unleashes his virtuosic six-string fury on the excellent Dragon's Kiss, which may be the most definitive sampling of Friedman's talents available. Spiking his supersaturated heavy metal sensibilities with texture, imagination, and a flair for the exotic, Friedman proves to be a distinctive modern metal soloist. This all-instrumental offering marks the end of Friedman's more indulgent, progressive solo artist phase, as he was recruited to join Megadeth's ranks shortly after its release.

Must Have Guitar Albums - Jason Becker - Perpetual Burn

Perpetual Burn is the debut studio album by guitarist Jason Becker, released in 1988 on Shrapnel Records. 
The album’s best moment, “Air,” features some traditional classical fingerpicking that gives way to multi-tracked arpeggio orchestrations and Bach-style counterpoint. The piece, which consists almost solely of clean, unprocessed electric guitar and no further accompaniment (with the exception of some keyboard textures in the beginning and end), is a wonderful respite from the rest of the album’s more metallic style and supersaturated guitar tones. There are also some quirky, humorous touches sprinkled liberally around Perpetual Burn, which add to its charm.
