Carlton’s melodic  yet  aggressive  approach  to writing  and  playing  on  this  CD blended with Tak’s proven ability  to write and perform Hit  songs make  for a unique Guitar experience.  Drawing upon their knowledge and different music backgrounds  Larry  &  Tak  have  forged  Eastern  and Western  guitar  styles  to create a truly magical and unique album unlike any other.
