    I should also say that his tone & vibrato are amazing! Anyone that misses Yngwie's early tone will love this. I think he uses a signature Malmsteen strat. This guy is second to Malmsteen in the neoclassical scene, and deserves more attention. Oh and if you didn't know, he is also the guitarist for Ark Storm.

    I don't agree with the yngwie clone tag. This guy is one of the few neoclassical guitarists that are very unique. He doesn't use the same structures & patterns as Yngwie. Any fan of neoclassical guitar and metal really needs to listen to Mr. Ohta!
