capacity to understand the things he did
paul gilbert saying Shawn Lane is the most terrifying guitarist of all time
Guthrie Govan saying how amazing he was. Guthrie has his break into the industry when he decided to try and transcribe a piece of music for the
magazine and he decided to go for the hardest thing he could think of and it was Shawn Lane
2 of Shawn Lanes biggest influences were Conlon Nancarrow who had these amazing studies for player piano. composing music far beyond a humans ability

True story. But the great guitar players like Shawn use a part of their brain that even the greatest composers rarely did and that's the
improvisational aspect. Aggregating all musical knowledge and spitting out music so highly complex and original, in the moment. That's what gets me
the most. Respect.
Zappa is great.
I like a lot of the jazzers. Julian Lage has been my new favorite for a while.
