creative metal soloing, without question, unsurpassed here in the mixolydian vein. although I don't believe he advertised it as such so much. that one is always popular.

roo had elements there that I look for

1) sounds great
2) interesting fingerings. Roo uses his pinkie a lot, more than most here. although I did see David do a pinkie vibrato last lesson.
3) Interesting timings. This is critical. Often I will be attracted to a lesson for this, even if I am familiar with the type of play for the most part. For example, on the second part after the intro, how he starts it off a bit syncopated. he does that in about 4 or so spots on the song. I am impressed with guys do that, even when the song is not that hard, it is worthwhile. Take Muris's Intermediate Solo from aways back. He impressed me there there as much as on his tougher stuff, because of the interesting timings. You have to pick it up by feel, you never will get it by looking at notes. Maybe some of those are mistakes, I don't know, I never was sure about Clapton either in his old live stuff. But it still was great! Heck even David's slow stuff, some may say it is easy, but not so, not to play it well. Stuff like that has to be perfectly timed or something sounds wrong (of course you always have that loud backing track to cover if you don't want to spend the time perfecting it, you know, lipstick on a pig, it fools most on youtube).

edit: I also look for interesting rhythms on the phrases. Lian is a master of that. I might listen to a more mechanical lesson that lacks this, or at least I used to before had them all covered. Now I look for rhythm nuances, stuff you can never notate, that you have to pick up by ear. Lian has a lot of that stuff. He fits in 4/4 stuff, or triplet stuff, mixes it up. But still keeps the beat going. I basically like beat music, but with interest in it. Pavel had some that had it, the stuff most people don't mess with concerning Pavel. I rarely have seen anyone look at his D-Mood, and that is full of interesting rhythms.

Dude, I loved his playing but I could never get his country style lessons down, he's just on a different level technically.
