In Memoriam Allan Holdsworth died 15th April 2017

It is a year to the day since the greatest musician of my lifetime died at the age of 70.

Here's a whole concert of AH at the peak of his powers. In particular check out his solo on "Devil Take The Hindmost", from 33:13 to 36:31, starting with nearly three minutes of soloing over a static G5 chord. His fingers fly across the fretboard, suggesting parallel harmonic structures which circle the main tonal centre ever more allusively.
