Remember Monte Pittman? Of course you do, he’s the Madonna and Prong guitarist who released his third solo album, The Power of Three, exactly a year ago today. And he’s the type of inspirational guitar virtuoso whom you just want to watch shred, so go ahead and watch the three new music videos (in the player above) that’ve just been released and sit and wait in awe until Pittman sets his fret board on fire.
The three videos released are “Delusions of Grandeur,” “Away from Here,” and “Missing.” “Delusions of Grandeur” was shot at the end of 2014 with bassist Max Whipple and drummer Scott Fuller and directed by Vince Edwards. “Away from Here” was shot by Brad Jurjens and AJ Satsangi, and “Missing” was shot live at the Whisky a Go Go by Brad Jurjens and Ian Shea.
