In the pantheon of great progressive rock guitarists, two names will always rise to the forefront of any discussion: Steve Howe and Nigel Tufnel. Debate will rage for centuries as to wether the acoustic breakdown in Starship Trooper is superior to the mandolin solo in Stonehenge, but that doesn’t address the question of who is truly the more innovative player? Steve Howe can master an 83-string Uzbekian Zschnüuuur or anything else with strings on it, but leave it to Tufnel to play a stringed instrument (an electric guitar) with another stringed instrument (a violin). There can be no doubt that Howe is brilliant. But Tufnel? Genius.
