Allan Holdsworth Inspires Dweezil Zappa
In an interview with this writer for Beat magazine, Dweezil said he began reworking his technique two years before ZPZ played their first show, in order to handle parts written for other instruments, such as Frank's intricate marimba arrangements. But now that that's all in his (seemingly effortless) grasp, the guitarist is looking to assimilate other influences into his style.
"One of the things that's been cool lately is that some of the things I've always admired in other players, like Allan Holdsworth, for instance," Dweezil said. "He has these fluid runs, this kind of tension and release around what he's doing. And Frank built his own tension and release in a way that was even more angular than Allan Holdsworth. And as I grow as a guitarist some of the influences I've always had have a chance to be expressed more specifically." more on this story
