I was a huge Frank Zappa, Bill Nelson, and John McLaughlin freak at the time.

But I listened to some songs (especially Mahavishnu Orchestra) so much that what I "hear" and try to translate to the fretboard is extremely influenced by McLaughlin. I never sat down and picked the solos off the albums, though.
lol.

Cool, that's how I am too.

Can't seem to play the same thing twice, even if I try.
