With his third album, this 17 year old guitarist from Guatemala displays talent way beyond his years and this virtuoso axe man is starting to catch the eye of the music industry outside of his native country, recently playing with some notable names such as Kansas and Whitecross. Playing music that ranges from rock to jazz fusion, Hedras, who is self taught, shows that he knows how to make his guitar perform acrobatics. There is a full mixture of finger shredding solos, laid back jazz funk and all manner of squeaks and pops emanating from his guitar. In what is a truly diverse offering, even a Scottish bagpipe makes an appearance in the aptly named "Something Different" which harks back to the days of Big Country. The cream of this recording however, is certainly found on tracks where the sound is stripped down to a driving bass and heavy guitar, such as "Writing A History" where Hedras can really let rip over a simple platform. At 12 tracks this CD contains over an hours worth of enjoyable music, providing plenty of inspiration to would be guitar heroes.
