The acoustic tracks on Velvet Darkness changed my view of music. If you loved the opening to Nevermore on UK, check it out. There is a small label called Art of Life that released Holdsworth on 12 string acoustic in a trio that came out the same year as that first UK. I just wanted to put a word in for his acoustic playing.
His genius cannot be overstated, in my opinion, among the best to ever play guitar. He kept me sane growing up/young adult years. I drove as much as 11 hours to see him, just on the slim chance someone I knew who knew someone could introduce me to him.
