Marty Friedman’s new solo record, Wall of Sound, is absolutely mind-blowing. It was hands-down one of my favorite records of 2017 and I can’t remember playing a guitar solo album this often since back in 2005 when John Petrucci released his one and only solo record, Suspend Animation.
This song, Miracle, was already kind of a tear-jerker, but now Mr. Friedman has made this simple, nostalgic but powerful video to accompany it. Essentially, Marty sits on a bar stool on a simple photo set and plays through the lead parts of the song, almost entirely looking into the camera and with nearly no cuts. It is definitely worth your time and we can be grateful to have such a great guitarist and songwriter in our lives.
