Guitarist, singer, songwriter, and all around music man Monte Pittman stopped by AllMusic’s studio to give the latest on his new solo album, The Power of Three. Go inside the making of the album produced by Fleming Rasmussen of 80′s Metallica fame, learn why playing guitar for Madonna is a bit different than you might think, and hear an exclusive live performance of his song, “End of the World.”
Following the release of his latest solo album The Power of Three, last month via Metal Blade Records, MONTE PITTMAN has been working non-stop. After various appearances, clinics and signings at the NAMM convention in Anaheim, CA, MONTE invaded the East Coast. As part of the trip MONTE filmed an appearance for the daily cable music news show Fuse News.
MONTE‘s appearance will air tonight on the Fuse network at 7:30 PM EST. In the segment, (which was filmed on location at Ludlow Guitars in New York City), MONTE treats Fuse News host Georgie Okell to a guitar lesson of his song “On My Mind”.
MONTE then goes on to tell Okell about the evolution of his career from aspiring guitar player, to guitar teacher, to becoming Madonna’s lead guitarist and of course his solo work.
Check out this new interview of Monte by Metal Mark in which they discuss the inspiration and making of the new album “The Power Of Three”.
“It reminded me of when I first started playing guitar and creating what I would call my ultimate album. It takes all of my influences from back then and brings them all together in “The Power Of Three.”

PowerLine Magazine has reviewed “The Power of Three” and rated it with 4 out of 5 stars. Here’s an excerpt of the review: “The hard-charging “A Dark Horse,” with its shadowy, sinister acoustic intro knitted together by Pittman’s fingers, “Missing” and “Delusions of Grandeur” tear the roof off The Power of Three with furious riffs and heart-pounding speed, leaving just enough room for Pittman to reel off spectacularly frenzied solos.”
