I'm getting a little bored with my usual diet of rock music. I love the energy and passion of guys like EVH, Lynch, Schon, etc. but I'd like to broaden my musical horizions.

Some suggestions for artists who would be a logical transition from rock to fusion/ jazz would be appreciated!

Man, where do we start? Check out Scott Henderson and Tribal Tech, Allan Holdsworth, Frank Gambale (with or without Vital Information), Chick Corea's Electrik Band, Weather Report, Mahavishnu Orchestra. There's a lot more, but that should get you going.

Since the guys you listed are pretty heavy, maybe some of the Shrapnel/Tone Center stuff, OHM or Volto! to ease you in? At least many of the tones will be on familiar ground.

Others have already said what I was thinking. Good call on the Allen Hinds. I have really been digging him lately.

Happy listening.

Steve Morse-The Introduction
Allan Holdsworth-IOU and the first U.K. album
