Yngwie, Sheehan, Others Guest on 'Guitar Masters Vol. II' Disc

Brian Tarquin and BHP productions have recently added the second volume to the critically acclaimed Guitar Masters series with Guitar Masters Volume II (via Red Eye). Produced by accomplished guitarist, composer and producer Brian Tarquin, Guitar Masters Volume II is a rich collection of rarities and classic guitar songs performed by some of the world's top players. The collection includes a 1970 original track from Jimmy Page & Lord Sutch, an incredible live version of B.B. King performing his classic “Paying the Cost to be the Boss” and Van Halen’s “Light up the Sky” performed by Yngwie Malmsteen and Billy Sheehan.

"It was a guitar players dream to work with such unbelievable tracks from such icons as Jimmy Page, B.B. King, Santana, and to have worked with Steve Morse & the great Max Middleton to produce such gems that are on Guitar Masters Vol 2,” says producer Brian Tarquin.
