Cesar Huesca - Cesar Huesca - 2008 - Cesar Huesca

Cesar Huesca is a prodigy from Mexico largely popular due to his shredding videos and covers of guitar giants like Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Vai on youtube. I had the chance to explore some of his own music on his youtube channel and was very impressed! This guy has genuine talent and as a longtime fan of instrumental rock, it makes me happy to see younger musicians carry on the tradition of the guitar gods. Some of the tracks on this cd could very well be on a Satch album, which is the only weakness of this CD. As Cesar evolves towards his own sound, look out guitar world! Buy the cd to support a genuine talent! – from ****/5 stars Fantastic new talent October 9, 2010 By & © S.

Mexican guitar virtuoso Cesar Huesca recorded this album in his own home studio. Similar to guitarists like the incredible virtuoso guitarist Guthrie Govan, Cesar is a technically perfect player and makes the most complex fretboard work sound like childs play. This is an exceptional album covering many different styles, from subtle acoustic work to searing electric jazz-funk and rock. Cesar is obviously influenced by guitar greats like Satriani, Vai, Gilbert, etc and just like those guys he has the ability to put his own identifiable stamp on his playing. In an interview with Guitaristic.net, Cesar said that, “I’m currently listening to a lot of alternative rock and progressive bands and some old stuff that I am used to listen from time to time like Pink Floyd, or guitar players like Stevie Ray Vaughan or Gary Moore. Lately I’ve been listening to Ayreon’s The Human Equation album, the new Stone Sour album Audio Secrecy, the new Joe Satriani album, Guthrie Govan’s Erotic Cakes, some Alter Bridge, Evergrey and a little bit of everything. I’m a rock guy but in my media player you may find unexpected things haha!” This s/t album is simply great and his playing will leave you spellbound. Shame it’s only like an E.P at 36 minutes long. However quality is always better than quantity and his next album is really something to look forward to. The album is HR by A.O.O.F.C. Buy this album, and don’t let guitarists like Cesar Huesca “fly under the radar” into obscurity. More of this kind of music is badly needed to keep our faith in real musical talent alive. One of the albums mentioned by Cesar, “Erotic Cakes” should be heard by everybody interested in exceptional guitar playing.
