    Knopfler is awesome - I was on a Skydiving 10 way Speed Star Team called "Dire Speed" inspired by him and his mates in Dire Straights.

    I'd like to have the vision, versatility and skill of Mike Keneally. Not to play just like him, just to be able to feel like I could play whatever it was I was trying to get out.

    Kenney Burrell mixed with Jeff Beck oh yeah bring on

    But i do think Guthrie would sound great in a PRS from everything that I heard from this guy he loves mahogany and the cutting middles - definetly Paul and him should have a conversation.

    Agreed, Marty dominated that album. It still gets plenty of play time from me.

    +1, if I had Al D's chops, I'd be a happy man. Jazz, rock, Flamenco, shred etc that dude can do it all!

    I tried to like other thing's by him but he always has that bend-up from-a-weird note thing going on but whatever, his solo's on R.I.P. are the most intelligent, melodic, and singable in the golden period of thrash music.


    I bought his "Melodic Control" VHS (!!!!) tape when I was in my teens for like $65!!! Remember those "Star Lick's" video tapes?! Learning is so free now!

    Monotonic as I am, I'd like to be like Michael Akerfeldt. Not just with the guitar sound and the playing skill, but also his vocal skills (including growling) and composition / arrangement creativity... man, am I a fanboy

    Whoa whoa whoa, I've almost got another virtual heart attack! I agree with every single word you said. Few months ago I even started a thread about PRS 8 (pretty much being inspired by Tosin)... almost nobody cared though

    I think his power might come from his super uncomfortable looking pick hand technique. I should hunt those videos up and give them a go. Marty was godlike in those days. Regarding learning being free now days...you are absolutely right. I recently watched a video with Greg Koch where he said there's no excuse to suck anymore due to all of the (legally) free content available to a person. I should stop sucking. Haha.

    His singing, both clean and growling, is top notch. Bloodbath, Opeth, Storm Corrosion...all in heavy rotation around my place.

    Tosin is a monster. Their first show was actually in STL. Their next time through they claimed to be filming a live DVD. I need to look and see if it ever got released. I was at both shows. I will be seeing them again here in STL on Saturday. Meshuggah headlining.
