Examples of his playing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NU5R7kaLdSU
I just love the classical/evil sounding exotic scales he uses... I realize it has taken his entire life to get where he is, but I really don't even know where to start to be able to play that style a few years down the road. Ultimately I'd like to be able to improvise this kind of stuff over backing tracks (not as fast as him obviously). Sure I could figure out what scales he uses and try to memorize them but I am looking for a way to utilize what I learn in song form from the start.
start with the basics man, and go slow.
