Yeah, I think John Petrucci could make a decent living as a classical guitarist.
"It's all folk music... I ain't never heard no horse sing!"
- Attributed variously to Leadbelly and Louis Armstrong

If at first you don't succeed, you are obviously not Chuck Norris.

The most VERSATILE guitarist that I've ever encountered was Tommy Bolin :eek: :D lin.. Rock, Jazz, Fusion, mellow, heavy, island.. you name it.. He died in '76, but was in James Gang and Deep purple, Billy Cobham, Alphonze Mouson, others.. and had 2 excellent solo albums as well. I'd recommend his solo work.. Teaser and Purple's Come taste The Band albums..

Lenny Breau is the most versatile guitarist by far, at least among famous guitarists. He was capable of performing Country, Jazz and Flamenco, sometimes all in one song. The only criticism he received, was playing too many styles in one song. If Rock shredding was around in his time, he would have added that to his collection of genres as well, if he felt it was worth his time.
