I don't really like Jazz Fusion because it's just creepy lift music. But I'll suffer the lift music just to listen to the man's incredible, out of this world legato and whilst I do so, realise that I've got a lot of work to do... cool.gif



I noticed he uses the same kind of vibrato I do. Or I should say, I use the same kind of vibrato he does... I never even knew that ! biggrin.gif

careful with that one,
muuuuch stuff fitting in that genre and also plenty that would blow a lift to pieces.

anyways nice vid, still hate myself for missing the holdsworth band in my town this year dry.gif

It is a bit weird though isn't it ?

For example, if somebody walked in on my whilst I was listening to jazz fusion I would feel like I had to explain myself, for some reason ! laugh.gif

"Err, I was just listening to the guitar.. don't think I'm into these weird chords and notes..."

It is quite bizarre isn't it. He always aimed to emulate something like a horn or sax.
