Not obscure, but I have been on a Scott Henderson kick lately. I had some Tribal Tech years back, which was hit or miss for my tastes. I am not a blues guy either. But recently I downloaded several tunes from vibe station, live!, HBC (Henderson Berlin Chambers), and Dennis Chambers time to time. Scott was also just on the No Guitar Is Safe podcast. Some of the sitar like lines he does are so badass, as is his Jeff Beck on steroids vibe, often sounding a little Holdsworthy, awesome stuff.
