This guy is the master, a guitar player who must be connected to some alien guitar planet somewhere.

Here's an example:

Non-brewed Condiment - Allan Holdsworth - YouTube


And here's a full concert from 1984 back when AH was using a red Charvel San Dimas, the exact same guitar that Jake E Lee was using when he was with Ozzy in 83-84. At the time Holdsworth was busy working with Ibanez helping them develop the super strat prototype that became the guitar that was launched in 1987, the one that Satriani and Vai made famous.

I saw Holdsworth at the Kingfish in Baton Rouge back in the 70's. He was in Jean-Luc Ponty's band along with Darryl Stuermer, Ralphe Armstrong and Steve Smith.

I don't listen to Holdsworth nearly as much as I should. He is a true master of the instrument.
