I agree with Disco Biscuits. It's not that inaccessible. If you want to copy him EXACTLY, well that's a pain in the tuckus to do for any artist. But if you want to play in the same vein and overall feel, this is the way there. That micro bend stuff is semi-relevant, but that's more icing on the cake, IMO. There are lots of other guitarists out there whose sheer speed and dexterity makes them almost impossible to emulate. J Garcia is not one of them. And I'm not downgrading Jerry when I say that-- super fast playing can sound good when done well, but it can also be incredibly annoying and non-musical, too. One of my favorite guitar solo players of all time has to be David Gilmour: his lyrical, melodic approach to solos made them memorable-- much more so than fast wheedly-wheedly-wheedly. Of the super fast players, Joe Satriani and EVH paid attention to melody (most of the time), and so their music gives me less ear fatigue than other shredders' material.
