Try Guthrie Govan for a change.
THAT guy plays almost everything,
which I can't say for JP,my opinion,not the end of the world tho. smile.gif

Keep looking for different styles,techniques and ways of expression,
that's probably the only right way for every musician.

Meh, I used to be into guitar-oriented music like Govan, Vinnie Moore, Tony MacAlpine, Jason Becker, etc. Ever since progressive came on though, guitar-oriented songs just don't seem to hold my attention for too long. Now when I listen to music it is more of like a whole band view for me. The lyrical content plays a big role sometimes. And the only instrumentals I can seem to get into just happen to be Dream Theater and Liquid Tension Experiment because theirs are quite stretched out with guitar solos/keyboard solos, progressive riffing, bass solos, etc. Not just guitar-based themes and a guitar solo.

Even though it seems like I am a DT elitist, I am not, because for example, I wouldn't even buy John Petrucci's solo album. Why? I like his band better. I have tried listening to literally everything else and it is like Deeproots said, nothing seems to reach the bar that I feel Dream Theater has with music and just don't cut it for me. I think the only way to get over them is listen until it just gets old.
