Guitar Lesson with Vinnie Moore is currently featuring video footage of Vinnie Moore talking about his influences and offering various forms of guitar instruction. The UFO guitarist shows viewers how to play "Too Hot to Handle" as well as "Fly," a track from his new solo album, To the Core. Moore gives instruction on hybrid picking, open-string licks, wide-stretch diminished-seven arpeggio licks, and Jeff Beck-style bending and vibrato. The lesson can be found here.

To the Core
was released in North America on May 26 via Holland's Mascot Records. The album's recording lineup consisted of:

Vinnie Moore - Guitar
John "JD" DeServio - Bass
Tim Lehner - Keyboards
Van Romaine - Drums

For the past several years, Moore was on the road with UFO. Following this touring stint, he meticulously laid down the tracks for his newest guitar instrumental album.

Moore said, "The only plan I had when making this record was to do some things I have never done before," explained Moore. "I am into many types of music and wanted to make a record where I could just let it all pour out without limitations. I am basically a rock guy but all these other influences that filter into my music. You can hear many styles from an R&B/hip hop vibe to one that is heavy but has an Indian vibe with lots of exotic percussion. I even have a couple tunes with techno elements, some funk, some blues and some bebop. Hell, there is even some motorcycles on it and I even played slide guitar on 'Jigsaw', which is fairly new for me. The common thread that ties it all together is probably the fact that it's me playing guitar through it all."
