John Q,
You are right. I got Powers of Ten, and that's a great guitarist, man!
Shawn Lane kicks ass.
But I still give the edge to Holdsworth. The Bruford period and his first three solo records are still unmatched as for the composition matter. Take a song like Road Games, the sound in Metal Fatigue, the sonic research in The Un-Merry Go Round, his fugues in Sand, well that's still music that remains unmatched and imited so many times.

This leads to my main critic to Mr.... Yngwie Malmsteen.
Where did he improv in twenty years? His best records were the first, hands down. His "favorite" technique, those semidiminshed scales, are still there, with the melodic sense he had. But I believe he's not improving at all in the composition field... he's regressing faster than the speed of light.

Get Vai. He's still learnin'. Get Satriani, he's experimenting. Get Morse, he's studying new techniques. Get Petrucci, he's a perfectionist. Get Emmett. He's got faith in what he's doing, and he played jazz, blues, country, ragtime. Get Johnson, he's got the best tone. Get Gambale, he's got those perfect licks. As you got, I love players that can pick different genres.
Get today's Malmsteen, get 15 years ago Malmsteen. Improvements?
