If you haven't heard of him, you owe it to yourself to check him out. .... and he doesn't just shred. Totaly amazing talent that few have heard of even tho he has put out over 300 albums! Does the shred better than Vai, does tapping better than EVH, does rock better than Slash (was in GnR for 2 yrs), does the kill switch thing better than Tom Morrello and plays stunning ambient acoustic stuff, plays bass better than Flee and even has a signature Les Paul (27" scale!), to boot. ... and then there is the mystery..... .
