Ok so we got an entire forum filled with Guitar-Geeks, i know we have to have some zappa fans out there!

So who here is a fan of Sir Zappa?

Frank Zappa - Cosmic Debris
Frank Zappa Solo

His picking technique is awesome, reminds me of a cross of Michael Angelo Batio, and Marty Friedman

QUOTE ("Steve Vai")
Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.
