    Love Zappa- one of our most under-rated Guitarists. Everyone should own a copy of the 3 disc classic - "shut up and play yer guitar". That being said....

    Robert Fripp rips this solo to shreds circa 1974.....solo starts at 1:30

    Too many try to make him "cartoonesque" cripes is that even a word? and they miss his genius as a player.

    For me for true when I saw him live with Zubin Meta and oh the best ever when he played with Jean Luc Ponty. It was heaven.

    Well to others maybe not. But to me it was.

    I've listened to Heavy Duty Judy about 8,000 times. I recommend you listen to no more that 4 bars in any one sitting.

    No, I'm not kidding.

    hehehe...

    Things started to get steamy around here. :eusa_angel:

    Feel like we do was awesome. Not being nit picky here but for me you'd have to break it down in categories.

    But two just off the top of my head that I adore. Stevie Ray and oh I love this man to death Mr. and we're talking Mr. Steve Vai. Oh they both bring me to my knees.

    And never ever forget Eddie. And OMG when you've witnessed Eddie live you have just gone to rock heaven.

    For the life of me I can't get them to copy. Always remember my disclaimer that I'm typing from Fred Flinstones house.

    If someone could be so kind as to put up the you tube of SRV and Crossfire.

    Steve Vai and the Crossroads duel.

    Eddie and Eruption.
