He is a fusion shred master. But all of his songs that I've heard are just backing tracks for his pyrotechnics. I am inspired by his chops, and apparently his repertoire of styles is vast, but at what point is enough enough? Im not disparaging his musicianship, and I "get" what he's doing, but as a guitarist I just have to say a players value is so much more than how fast he can play or how many styles he can copy. I think my objection is that he's not original, he just woodshedded more and gained more facility with fusion tropes. Not feeling it. I'm actually a yngwie fan, go figure. But I'd much rather listen to Guthrie than bonnamassa.
