" Bob Ernst is a master craftsmen running the gamut of
all out blues to refined fusion ...
emotionally infused blues / shred soloing ... outside
the box solo flurries ... an unbelievable
sense of timing and melody, very lyrical ... a
unique very identifiable style."

A well rounded Composer and Guitarist ...This CD goes from spacious
light Jazz sounds to
Heavy Rock to Electrified Blues ... at times borrows from the
past, while all the time lurching forward,
forging new grounds ! ... a highly tasteful player ... Bob kicks
it into shred mode
when needed ... This is the real thing

of speed ... The CD demonstrates
Bob's mastery of the guitar and his

fluid expression and a
lot of soul ... HANDS-ON is a breath of fresh air in the
blaring across the airwaves."
