Hey all! My name is Ben Carroll. I am the guitarist for alternative prog rock band Ra (Universal/SMR.) I am gearing up for the launch of my first full length instrumental solo record "A Dream Between Two Fires" on June 9, 2009! I am taking pre-orders right now and with each pre-order comes with a free download of my 2004 EP "Ben's Tasty Tunes."

Want to hear some sick guitar playing from an up and coming instrumental artist? Head on over to A Dream Between Two Fires

Thanks guys!

I'd love to hear comments on the music. This will be my first instrumental solo record...I'm pretty excited for it. I decided to do it all myself after the record label experiences I've had over the past 8 years & 3 record deals....really want to give it a shot on my own. If it gets out of hand (that would be a good thing!) then I'll figure something else out.
I did the whole record in my home studio with ESP guitars, I've been and ESP endorsed artist for 8 years & I've got a good handful of 6 & 7 string ESP's. Everyone at ESP has always been great to me and I love the guitars!

But anyways, please, take a listen, tell me what you think!

A Dream Between Two Fires

Looking forward to hearing comments! :metal:

-Ben

Dig the art, not feeling the font on your name.

I dig the art too, but I see 4 fires. :scratch:

I'll check out the audio later. Thanks for the heads-up. If you haven't already, see about selling it on Guitar9.com. They've had my instrumental EP for years now, and the sell instrumental stuff from most of the big boys, so it's a great one-stop-shopping deal for consumers.

I have heard of Guitar9.com and yeah, I think I'll have to see about a hookup through them! Thanks for the advice man!

I'll be perfectly honest, I've known of Ra for years and years, but I've never actually managed to check out any of your stuff, Ben. I'll definitely be doing that tonight!
