If imitation is the highest form of flattery, both guitarists have reason to feel extremely flattered. Every guitar that I play has different qualities.
Meanwhile, you work with what you have and do what you can to improve all these areas. The warm, woody tone of those guitars—one a hollowbody and the other a semi-hollow Kurt Rosenwinkel Signature model with a spruce top and maple back and sides—served him well on that session, which was recorded in Brooklyn in June with bassist Eric Revis a longstanding member of the Branford Marsalis Quartet and drummer Eric Harland with the Charles Lloyd Quartet and a member of the SF Jazz Collective.
And it plays like a dream. So there was a comfort zone that I got back to with that instrument. His distortion, which he used very sparingly on this gig, came from a vintage Pro Co Rat pedal.
And his subtle touches of delay came from an Eventide TimeFactor. Then you can play another chord on top of the first one and get that kind of tertiary harmony and build more complex voicings. For example, sometimes I play huge chords and hit them really hard, and I want them to be loud. A compressor is going to limit that, which is a problem.
The FloorQ is better in that regard than most compressor pedals, because it is an optical compressor, which is relatively transparent. He pioneered that approach where it sounds like you have two separate musical motions going on at the same time, which is very hard to do on the guitar because you only have your left hand, obviously. Enjoying and listening to his music has been really helpful for me as a guitarist, and studying his books has also helped me a lot.
Furthermore, I think that Allan Holdsworth and John Coltrane have a lot in common in terms of their linear conceptions. David Bowie is a hero of mine just as Bud Powell is a hero of mine.
