yes vai rocks, best guitarist i've ever heard, but i'm quite sure there is/will be someone better than him
Thats my opening!
-Yeah, that would be Holdsworth, but he is not obsessed with grabbing our attention via performance: canned body language and flashy and gushy licks vs. stirring technique. Come on guys, don't kill me:eek: :thumb:

I don't want to take away from Vai 'cause I'm really diggin' him tonight but, visit this site http://www.therealallanholdsworth.com/allanshome.htm
Its really another realm entirely. There is a sound file that automatically comes in when you visit that site: just listen to the subtlety of his playing, its like a woodwind instrument that actually breaths. I love the guitar, like most of us do on this site so, I just can't dismiss Holdsworth as being boring. There is something golden and fucking sublime that he tries to achieve (and on many occasions does achieve) with six strings and a little distortion.
