About Chris Manning
Chris Manning is a Dallas-based guitarist, songwriter, and session player. As an artist with a wide-variety of musical tastes, Chris' music remains difficult to categorize. Heavily influenced by rock heavy weights Jimi Hendrix, King's X, Deep Purple, Jimmy Page, Joe Satriani, Bruce Kulick, and George Lynch as well as new age artist Craig Chaquico, Chris' style balances technique and melody.

"Good instrumental rock albums only get produced once-in-a-while. One of the most recent additions to that list of albums is Symmetry from Chris Manning".
- Matheson Kamin, RockandRollReview.com
"I REALLY liked this album. Excellent production, slick artwork and packaging, and a deft hand on the guitar, and writing, made each track stand out. Not a weak one in the bunch".
