one thing after another
10 instrumentals for two guitars (double-tracked)
Playing with a sound reminiscent of Steve Morse and Larry Carlton, guitarist Mike Ohm manages to capture the feel of an entire band in the two- or three-track instrumentals on One Thing After Another. The opening number, Fatty Acids, presents three tracks of Mike Ohm's guitar playing, on a tune with melodies that stick in your head and a groove that had me envisioning hip-hop lyrics over the top.
Keep Smilin' gives us an Ohm version of Rhythm Changes, complete with riff and swing bass (on guitar, of course). F-Bomb stays in the swing pocket, with a bit more twang, while Been Tryin' has a Latin feel interspersed with funk riffs and jazz harmonies.
More swing, funk, and rock flavorings follow, until Segovia's classical Impromptu seasons this jazz guitar stew with one more spice, followed by finger-picking ala John Fahey on Eric Johnson's Song For George.
Originally conceived as compositions for a larger group, Mike's decision to present these tunes in a two- (or three-) guitar format is our pleasure, for we get to hear Mike Ohm up close and personal.

Were not complex
They tore themselves apart
And started sex."
