    I have 98% of his solo and Vital Info work....I really dig the entire "coming to your senses" project.... Great playing and songwriting on that one.... I really love his work on Synergy as a member of Dave Weckl Band, too with Buzz Fieten.


    What do you guys like?

    Solo stuff I think either Passages or The Great Explorers. I love his playing on VI Easier done than Said, also the first GHS album for off the cuff less structured stuff. He also has some great playing on other people's albums. Also, both Truth in Shredding albums are cool, especially the one with Holdsy.

    I also like his Natural High album... somehow playing the way he does over standards makes it much more impressive to me... plus wow he is supremely musical on that album... i love his work with GHS

    sideman - CCEB 'beneath the mask', for me too
    solo - 'present for the future'

    wanted to love 'truth in shredding' with holdsworth, but it sounded and felt like they werent even in the same room when it was made - no interplay ... turns out, they weren't

    My fave FG disc by far is the 'Coming To Your Senses' album.
    Perfect blend of rock and jazz with a lot of melody and great compositions.

    "Raison D'ĂȘtre" is probably the one i would want to hear again. IIRC that was the one where he introduced his "new" tuning.
    I haven't heard anything of his since then.

    brave new guitar is his best playing and best writing by far. Tone was horrible but the writing and playing was brilliant. After that, he began dumbing down the writing and playing in order to try to be commercially successful.
