Spectrum Exploration I Previews
“From the Guitarist of the Year 2018 winner Gabriel Cyr comes a new EP, Spectrum Exploration I. If you’re wondering what led Cyr to be endowed with such a prestigious title, the record’s first track - the aptly titled Dark Times - will answer any such questions. The instrumental track sees the guitarist effortlessly traverse the fretboard, showcasing his fluency of theory as he confidently plays around with different scales and phrasing techniques.” - Sam Roche
