    Someone on the ShawnLane forum a long time ago posted about meeting him at a party once...

    The story went something like; Shawn was giving a chap recommendations for movies. Shawn was a huge film buff. Anyway, the guy posted a pic on the forum of this list(s) Shawn had jotted down...there were two columns, and the story was that Shawn wrote the movie lists using both hands at the same time...I dont know who held the paper down, but I want to believe this story so don't naysay. haha.

    It was said he could also sign his name and write his phone # at the same time...creepazoid.

    My favorite guitarist, probably my favorite musician. Someone needed to just chain him to Jonas Hellborg and a recording console and let them just go at it forever.

    Holy fuck! I've never seen him play before. That tapping on the last video at about 50 second mark was nuts!

    Unlike most of us who tend to play pre-rehearsed "note blocks" or licks when we improvise, Shawn pretty much played a beautiful stream of consciousness. You can break apart any single run of his and find it to be musical at any speed. He was able to actually think at that speed.

    The guy was just a true genius. We are just lucky he chose guitar. Had he not, I guarantee there would be some engineering forum talking about shawn lane, or some art forum, or really any pursuit he would have chosen.

    When other guitarists say Shawn 'was just another shredder' I show them this:
