    I've loved Paco ever since I first heard Entre Dos Aguas, not long after it was issued.

    Good, I guess. The thing I admire most about Greenwood is his completely non-blues based approach in riffs and solos. Being a guitarist myself, it's very hard at times not to revert to a standard blues scale when soloing. As shown in that clip, I also enjoy his ability to make his guitar sound like anything but a piece of wood with six strings. Non-blues solos at 3:00 and 5:40 :

    In the 80's it was Eddie Van Halen

    Since then I don't have any new favorites, but I enjoy many of them.

    Sorry if it's for real, but it sounds like one of those spoof solo things which that Finnish guy did on youtube, where he overdubbed some videos of Clapton, Yngwie, Vai, etc with atonal or just wrong notes (googling "(guitarist name) shred" usually does it).

    If it's bonafide, I guess I'm not ready for the avant-garde stuff [​IMG]

    Eddie Van Halen is overrated in my opinion. He is just extremely fast but no creativity.
