I listen to quite a bit of instrumental guitar music, everything from Allan Holdsworth to Joe Satriani.
Joe Beier is new to me this year. I downloaded some of his music in January and it's receiving repeated listens.
His songwriting reminds me of guitarist Dave Weiner, but Beier's music is more interesting to me--it has that eclectic approach that artists like Steve Morse use.
Anyway, give it a listen for the great tone, tasteful playing and accessible songwriting.
