"Just Kiddin'" opening song from the album "Five" (is the fifth studio album released in 1996 through Shrapnel Records) by guitarist Greg Howe.

The Story

"Five", an appropriate title for Howe's fifth Shrapnel release, was again completly recorded, produced, engineered and mixed by Greg

Howe at his house.
Howe even mans the drums on this one.
This recording set the stage for Howe's teaming with Richie Kotzen for two releases "Tilt" and "Project".
While some of the tracks are a step slower than some of the 'Allan Holdsworth on steroids' feel of some of his previous releases, there

are still plenty of examples of Howe's fluid, dare-devil playing over polyrhythmic, funky, neo-bluesy rhythm beds.
"Five" includes Howe's trademark shredding on exemplary tracks such as "Just Kiddin'" and "Acute".

Love you Howe. But you must admit "Just Kidding" is an actual Sambra from Brazil. The last night, I was walking for a night club in Rio and the band were paying this song. the origal song I mean! And even been a brasilian I do not know the music name. I tried to ask people around the street what was the real song's name. But none was able to say it. So I'd be really glad to hear Greg Howe saying it to their fans.

"Howe 'Bout It" opening song from the album "Parallax" (1995) by the great genious of guitar Greg Howe.
Good listening.
The Story

Reminiscent at times of Tribal Tech and Chick Corea's bands, Greg Howe's "Parallax" is comprised of aggressive rock/fusion compositions which highlight Howe's incredible command of the guitar. More funk oriented and syncopated than Howe's three previous recordings, Howe serves up a heavy yet unpredictable combination of '90s high tech guitar blended with '70s fusion influences. "Parallax" standouts include "Roundhouse", "Time Off" and "Howe 'Bout It" - three gems among the nine melodically intense instrumental workouts.
