RIP Allan Holdsworth


#1

Sad, sad loss. A great innovator and a really lovely bloke. Plenty of great music as a legacy but will leave a huge hole in music in general.

:pensive:

Very sad news, I don’t play guitar myself but appreciate and enjoy his playing, his music is other-worldly.

I think I’ve got all of his solo albums and a few albums with Gong, I’ll be playing some this week I think.

Sad news indeed.

He was only 70. :slight_frown:

Allan’s playing introduced me to four note per string scale patterns which necessitates some big finger stretches on the fretting hand. Of course he made it look absolutely effortless. A real innovator of guitar.
