I'd like to turn you on to yet another amazing, innovative guitarist in this world. His name is Dave Martone, and the guy melts faces when he plays. I learned about him when I took his class in the National Guitar Workshop in Seattle, WA. His use of intervalic melodies, hybrid picking, and unique tapping style definitely make him stand out among guitarist. He has released several instrumental albums, his most recent being "Clean" featuring players like Joe Satriani, Jennifer Batten, Billie Sheehan, and Greg Howe. If your a total guitar nerd like myself, I recommend you get on youtube immediately and check out his video "The Goodie Squiggie Song" to see what I'm talking about.
