Alan Morse biography
ALAN MORSE is best known as the guitarist for progressive rock band SPOCK'S BEARD. He's been a member of the band from the beginning, as has his brother, Neal Morse. He has collaborated with other artists such as SPENCER DAVIS, CHAD & JEREMY, and RYO OKOMOTO.

He is has a unique and distinct guitar playing style. He uses the classic wah-wah sound frequently, but what makes him so unique is that he never uses a guitar pick when playing.

He has released one album as of now titled Four 0'clock And Hysteria. This 2007 instrumental album shows his true skill on the guitar, and impresses me every time. It can be described as a Jazz/Rock Fusion album, with many eclectic leanings towards progressive rock and hard rock. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

WHY THIS ARTIST IS ON PA:
Approved by the Jazz/Rock Fusion team of collaborators.

3 stars Four O'Clock and Hysteria is Spock's Beard guitarist Alan Morse's debut solo album. It consists of 12 instrumental tracks consisting of just over an hour of music. Alan channels his inner-Joe Satriani on this album with a number of guitar riffs that would fit in nicely while surfing with aliens or travelling in a time machine. His brother Neal assists on keyboards, and he is accompanied by Gary Lunn on bass and Scott Williamson on drums, but this album is mostly about Alan and his guitars. Since I am not a guitarist, or for that matter, a musician, I can't go into any details about his style of guitar playing, but he does seem to have a fairly eclectic group of tracks with a bluesy sound on R Bluz, a funky sound on First Funk, an Yngwie Malmsteen classical guitar sound on The Rite of Left, and as previously mentioned I hear plenty of Joe Satriani-esque sounds throughout the album. If you are a fan of the Joe Satriani style guitar-led instrumental album then this is definitely an album for you to check out. Spock's Beard fans should definitely take the time to hear their guitar hero strut his stuff outside of the confines of the symphonic sound of Spock's Beard. Overall, I rate this album with 3 stars, as it is a good album, but it isn't essential.

Also, just to mention this though, I really like the album cover, where it is entirely in black and white, except for him and his guitar, which are in color. It has a nice effect.
