"Don't let your hands dictate what you think you can do. Look at fingerboard charts and imagine your eyes dancing on the notes you want to play, and forget about whether your hands can do it or not. Just try it."
Allan Holdsworth (6 August 1946 – 15 April 2017), British guitarist and composer. He released twelve studio albums as a solo artist and played a variety of musical styles spanning a period of more than four decades, but is best known for his work in prog rock and jazz fusion. He was in the super group U.K. with Bill Bruford, Eddie Jobson and John Wetton as well as Soft Machine, Pierre Moerlen's Gong, and The New Tony Williams Lifetime. An amazingly talented guitarist, his contributions to music will be missed. RIP, Mr. Holdsworth.
