Yes , I have the Jap version of Written In The Sand

As far as VH goes I agree with your point on melody but I still prefer him to Moore and others as there's something else in there which is hard to describe - attitude, humour and a feel unlike any other......can't put my finger on it.

There's no doubt that Ed's playing is not well structured in a strict musical sense - he once described his playing (to paraphrase) as like falling down the stairs and landing on your feet and I would agree. He sounds like he thinks the stuff up in his head and then sits down and figures out how to make those sounds. Guitarist like that are often very poor at on the spot improv and I would put Ed in that category , except on his very best days. And as we've said before when guys like that have a bad day they sound shite. A guitarist like Moore would never put in a shocker unless he was off his tits as Schenker has a habit of being from time to time LOL.

Moore's still top 5 for me along with Rhoads and a couple of others who would take some decision making.
