    You'll get no argument from me.

    Here's a nice shot of his SG.

    I really like all the extra switches he installed for the various devices (green ringer?) inside the SG. Nice pic, thanks!

    liked that second vid alot. Some good stuff. I also watched teh first one but not feeling that one as much as the second. COol guitar, and seemed that guy had a number of influences in his play. I could hear him go from rock to blues and back in his riffs.

    Zappa is one of my favourite musicians, indeed personalities of all time. I wrote a term paper on him recently, and it really showed me the depth of Frank's genius.

    I'd love to read it.
    Zappa was one of the reasons I learned to read and write music.

    Zappa is such an under-appreciated genius on the guitar. Check out the first video that dbb posted at the 5:45 mark, this was years before Van Halen "invented" tapping.

    Been a Zappa fan since 1975, this is the BEST two-chord jam ever devised!

    I'm happy y'all posted more Zappa, and I love the comments...makes feel good that I'm not alone in my admiration for Frank's playing and his writing.

    Who was the Strat soloist on the last cut?

    Zappa was years ahead of EVERYTHING.

    Here's a Dweezil video that is of interest:
    In the Studio with... Dweezil Zappa

    I believe that was Adrian Belew.
