During the recording of “Out of the Shell” a rough mix of the title track was sent to Guitar Player Magazine. The magic of the track caught the ears of the editors and Curtis Fornadley was selected as on of 10 finalists in Guitar Player Magazine’s "Guitar Hero 2007" competition.

At the show Curtis performed “Out of the Shell” and received rave reviews by celebrity judges: Joe Satriani, Steve Lukather, Nuno Bettencourt, Elliot Easton, Greg Howe and Mike Varney. To view this performance and judges comments visit https://www.tradebit.com

The music of Curtis is unique; each tune is different from the next, yet there is a common thread that ties them all together; the balance between composition, soulful playing and virtuosity. The guitar is front and center, but the variety of tones and styles allow it to be enjoyed by people other than guitar players. Curtis has great musicianship AND great tunes.

Here is a brief description of the tunes:

“Out of the Shell” – the title says it all – check it out
“Super Sonic” – by the time I finish listening to this I feel like I have had a pot of coffee
“Cookie Monster” – great grove rocker, Jeff Beck over tones
“Open Road” – radio ready instrumental, I love the solo section: naked but full.
“Charade” - solo Jazz guitar version of a classic Henry Mancini tune
“Starting at Infinity” – High energy rocker ala Joe Satrinai with a Prog rock bridge
“Indian Summer” - Eric Johnson type shuffle, great strat tones, memorable tune
“Simmer Down” - straight ahead rocker ala Steve Vai or “Hot for Teacher”
“Apache” - High energy rave up of a classic surf tune
“10 Years” – moody ballad, haunting melodies with Pat Metheny over tones

Other Curtis releases include:

"Curtis" (1998) : , "a guitar slinger with a worldwide view and the technical ability to explore it" (Music Connection)

“Curtis Fornadley punctuated his beautiful melodies by “scratching” the guitar against his chest.” – Guitar Player Magazine (GH07 review)
