I had a sound that was part Vernon Reid and part Buckethead plus something I had never heard guitarists do...stuff like the sax greats Coltrane and Dolphy, yeah, but not guitarists.
I took a tip from the jazz great Pat Martino that said the guitar was unlike most instruments in that it was a matrix and not a linear thing like a piano. Bingo. It all came together ... it sounds totally different but that was the point.
The point: the guitar's physical construction suggests a non-linear, matrix-like approach and NOT the approach dictated by western, piano-centric music.

hang on to your seat ;-)
But seriously, you may not like it. It is rather disturbing for a lot of folks.
