Andy James Academy Diary of Hells Guitar Pack Option 2 (2015)
This track actually started off as a collaboration between myself and Jeff Loomis, but as schedules didn't allow I needed a new track to perform on EMG TV at the beginning of 2014. So that is the very first version of it. After sitting with the track a while I started to cement a lot more of how I wanted the track to sound. I booked into the studio with Scott Atkins and recorded the finished version you will hear on this downloadable version. The rest of the track was performed and mixed by Alan Sacha Laskow with the full arrangement written by me. The reason he re-performed my version was so he could do a better mix as in my current home set up I'm not recording dry DI signal. So it all came together to be solidified into this official version of the song and I hope you enjoy it.

That is what our co-founder Jan Cyrka said when we decided to create our first ever JTC original full length album. Vai, Satriani, you name them...they have one!

So we spoke to a number of the artists on our glittering roster and asked them to compose their ultimate ballad. The result is a powerful album that is full of pure emotion and drive and takes you on a journey through the minds of 11 incredibly talented guitar players and composers.

Starting with Andy James' 'The Wind That Shakes The Heart' (which was written by Jan Cyrka and James Graydon) the emotion sucks you in from the first note, just as you would expect from a brilliant ballad track. The scene is then set and from there, all 11 JTC artists continue the same trend with their own individual take on the ultimate ballad. 

Any album that has brand new original tracks from the likes of Guthrie Govan, Alex Hutchings, Marco Sfogli, Jack Thammarat and more should be in any guitar players collection, there is no questioning that. However, we have gone the extra mile and provided you with 3 options!
