Allan Holdsworth (and his many disciples) have always been like comic book characters to me. Humans shouldn't be able to play like that. His finger picking is superb and his left hand technique ain't to shabby either. I remember listening to some early Holdsworth stuff with Bruford and thinking "wow! That guy really knows how to tastefully use a whammy bar." Then I saw a video of him playing live with the band and realized he wasn't touching the bar. Proceeded to hang my head in shame and return to the woodshed.
