Guitar by Frank Zappa
Released: Apr 1988
After exploring the Synclavier DMS synthesizer on 1986's Jazz From Hell (an album that landed the legendary outsider a Grammy Award, amazingly enough), Zappa returned with Guitar, a colossal collection of live recordings captured between the years 1979 and '84. It's this record (along with Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar) that made Zappa a guitar god to the burgeoning instrumental-rock scene. Of course, Steve Vai actually worked with him, but after just a few tunes it becomes obvious that hot-shot fret-masters Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson also studied the guy's masterful playing.
