VV has some unique techniques that are worrth looking at. His use of chromatic scales, odd time signatures. He has a very aggressive attack and some really cool ideas and phrasing. I think 4:45 is Vinnie at his best, soloing over the chord changes from “Ashes to Ashes”.
Not to mention the guy is a fantastic song writer, great sense of melody and composition.
That being said, his soloing, can be unnerving at times, and hes not for everyone. The sound of the upload, tone on this video doesn’t do him any favors.
Too much delay.
