    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.
    Bloodbath... I still don't understand why Michael doesn't play guitar and why Jonas doesn't sing there. Now THAT would be "supergroup"
    Lucky you! I hope they'll come around here one day. This year, I'll have to make do with Brutal Assault festival, with Opeth, Meshuggah, Ihsahn and Leprous

    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.
    Guthrie used to play PRS:

    Oh yeah saw that video bro - he should come back - for a player that wants to differentiates himself I don't think Charvel is a good fit. On the top of it, his charvel prototype is Suhr copy cat model so next he will be playing fender twin amps with high mods - endorsement deal -

    In my early days on the guitar playing journey I wanted to be Gilmour, Gary Moore, Mark Knopfler and to a degree Slash and perhaps Brian May. These days I have no desire to try and be anyone else but certain elements of these guitarists and others have rubbed off on me. I do a lot of string bending which definately came from listening to Gilmour, whereas my like of legato runs comes from Gary Moore and maybe Slash. From them all - hopefully - is an ear for melody and putting an emphasis on feel rather than pure show off licks.

    Gary Moore is the one person that I would aspire to play like.

    When I play, I try to come up with my own stuff but of course, my playing and tone is influenced and inspired by several of the big names. For me, like for so many others, David Gilmour is the man. I've listened to Pink Floyd since the early 70's and never, ever get tired of it. And don't forget Steve Hackett. And.... ah, there's so many. Of the younger ones, it has to be Joe Bonamassa. He's incredibly good.

    Another one of my great hero's is the SO underrated and uncelebrated Andy Latimer from Camel. That man can play the fiddle. Just listen to the song below and watch the man in the crowd wipe a tear or two after the song. Extremely emotional and soulful.

    I think Chris may be right...you're setting your expectations kind of low but thank you for the compliment, brother.

    You sure you can't make it in March, Dane?

    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!

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.
    The day I put Rust In Peace in my listening rotation, it has never left. His solos on that album still give me goosebumps when I hear them. Particularly, the one from Lucretia is just astounding. His picking technique is weird as hell, but I agree with Jfb as I think it attributes to his overall unique style.

    I miss the days of Mustaine and Friedman. They worked so well together. At least Broderick does justice to Marty's solos. Although, Broderick may be more technically proficient I feel Marty is the better writer in terms of leads.

    Dude! I remember Vito having a sheer lyricism to his leads that no shredder has matched.
