...an amazing compliment nonetheless.


I was recording some tracks for a friend's project last weekend, and one of the engineers told me my solo sounded "Holdsworth-ish."


I've been playing guitar on and off for 30 years, and have heard a lot of comparisons, but never this.

I cant say I agree, but I'll take it!

LOL, yep you can always tell who the guitar players are in the audience.

They're the only ones that seem like they aren't having a good time!

That's huge.

If you listen to Holdsworth (PBUH) or any other guitarist, you pick things up that find their way into your own playing, even if you're not consciously channeling 'em.

Many big-name players use note sequences that are fairly singular to their style. Sometimes I'll play a few notes and think, "that sounded a bit like [famous player]."

Compliments like your engineer's comments help confirm you're doing something right!

That's cool!!

Whenever I get compared to Holdsworth, it's more like "Electron couldn't carry Holdsworth's jockstrap" ;)

I've been compared to Eric Johnson many, many times.

...

Not because I play like him. Oh no. Because I kinda look like him. We've crossed paths, so one of these days I'll have to get a picture with him.

I regularly get compared to Hendrix.

The usual line is, "Hendrix could actually play."
