Really ? You surprise me.
George is one of my fav axemen, some solos in 'Under lock and key' and 'Back for the attack' almost made me cry and he has one of the most precious thing for an artist : a signature.

But.

Did you really find him good in that link you posted ?
To me he was probably in a bad frame of mind. It looks like it's not worked out, he was improvising, which is brave. I always thought the dangerous thing when you're a shredder is to fall in the 'speed euphoria' playing and loosing any sense of melody. Angus young said once 'Nothing wrong with technical players, I just don't like it when it sounds like an angry bee'.

I really did not mean to offend you in any ways, and I hope you don't take this personally but do you really find him good in that link ?

This debate is getting real old. I love both Jake and George's playing. Both are excellent, but different players. Neither one is "better" than the other - and I'm sure both of them would say the same.

Both are amazing players who have inspired countless others to pick up a guitar.
I was just watching a Youtube vid of Jake in Rio 1985 and forgot how cool a tune "Centre Of Eternity" was.

I always wanted to see how George would have played Randy's material and Jake handled all of it and made some amazing music of his own. Ozzy was a lucky bastard lol. Gillis, Vai, Skolnick, Wylde.
