Album Notes
"...Edgar Cruz is a wizard. How else can one explain how he captures the sounds of an entire band and reduces them to a single guitar? It's that special gift, skill, magic - whatever you'd like to call it - that has produced such amazing solo guitar performances as Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. If Cruz caught the attention of the guitar playing and listening world with that masterpiece, then that world had better brace itself. With the release of his latest studio effort, The A.R.T. (Acoustic Rock Transcriptions) of Edgar Cruz, Cruz has raised the gamut again. "It's Bohemian Rhapsody times twelve," says Cruz of the new batch of transcriptions. Included in the collection are such rock classics as Live and Let Die, Funeral for a Friend, Dream On, and nine others - all arranged and performed on solo guitar only as Cruz Can."
- John Schroder, Publisher, Fingerstyle Guitar

The A.R.T. of Edgar Cruz
Unquestionably, the most incredible guitar playing I've ever seen and heard. I love this album and will be buying more of his work. Watching him play on utube is unbelievable - and I thought Chet Atkins was a master. This guy is awesome!
