First of all, his music is complex and sometimes dissonant in ways that will captivate some listeners while deterring others. So be it, this isn't meant to be pop music. Fortunately, enough people like it to have enabled Allan to make a career of creating this music.
He's done a lot of intellectually demanding work to thoroughly explore the theoretical side of music - that takes a lot of intelligence and also a lot of motivation.
The result is that he's mapped out 10 key scales, many which are rather atypical. He's able to see these scales at once on the entire fingerboard, over which he flows freely, sometimes with wide intervals, in order to creatively construct unique chords and chord sequences, melodies, and improvisational solos in a way that can never really be taught. As if that wasn't enough, his technical prowess and control of tone are stunning.
I've been a fan of Allan for three decades, and have seen him live numerous times. I believe that he's genuinely modest and sometimes self-critical, but whether he can fathom it or not, he's a true genius of fusion guitar, and entirely deserving of his many accolades. While this video may not help you much in playing like Allan, it can be inspiring and hints at some general tips which can help anyone make progress not just as a guitarist.
Moreover, it provides the opportunity to glimpse into the mind of a virtuoso musician and composer, and that makes it a precious gift for all of us. Addendum: I wrote the above review while Allan was still with us, and I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing.
Over the course of more than three decades, his music became woven into my soul and made me a different and better person. As both an artist and guitarist, Allan was a gift to us all, the likes of which we'll never see again. RIP dear Allan. There are very few official videos of Allan Holdsworth out there, amazingly.
This one is great because, though it is marketed as an instructional video, over half of it is Allan and his band performing, taped close up in a studio environment. So the video and audio quality is excellent. I would give the vid 'Live at the Galaxy' a miss, unless you're a diehard fan, the quality is just not great fuzzy video, and mushy sound. It shows a complete insight view of the 10 more used scales by middleage Holdsworth their favorites , as well as its relationship with his enigmatic chord voicings; combining all this visual material with an interesting warmth chat, plus a fantastic live performance in the studio with Chad Wackerman on Drums, Skuli Sverrissen on Bass and his old friend Steve Hunt on Keyboards; here, you can listen and watch full close-up shots of Allan Holdsworth's amazing left hand technique.
The performed songs in this little studio jam are: 1. Zone, 2. Proto Cosmos, 3. Funnels, 4. Tell Me, 5. The Things You See, 6. Looking Glass, And 7. House Full Of Mirrors. Between songs, Allan Holdsworth explains the meaning of each song, why he composed it; and sometimes how to play it.
Don't miss the opportunity to see this "guitarist of guitarists" at his full musical potential. With this DVD the revolutionary Allan Holdsworth proves again why he is one of the most unique and respected guitarists around. Really out of this world! Good Luck! When I saw this DVD offering on my recommended list, I thought I had finally found an opportunity to figure out just what it was that I was hearing on all these cd,s, vinyl, etc that I had been mesmerized by for so long. Easier to just let it settle into my subconcious a little at a time, and enjoy it without necessarily understanding why.

Its taken a long time for this to get to DVD but here it is at last. The "live" tracks are excellent and the sound is very good. The instructional parts are interesting to watch and there's lots of info about his approach to playing which is very enlightening. The live parts are interspersed with the instructional. There is also the option to just play the live tracks or just the instructional if you wish.
The sound is much improved over the original vhs version. If you're into holdsworth this is a must but there again you probably aren't here reading this by accident. There's also the option to print out pdf files on your pc which comprises tablature for some of the songs featured and the 10 most useful scales he features.
Allan Holdsworth 6 August — 15 April  was a British jazz fusion and progressive rock guitarist and composer. Holdsworth was known for his highly advanced knowledge of music theory, through which he incorporated a vast array of complex chord progressions , often using unusual chord shapes in an abstract way based on his understanding of "chord scales", and intricate improvised solos , frequently across shifting tonal centres. He used a myriad of scale forms often derived from those such as the lydian , diminished , harmonic major , augmented , whole tone , chromatic and altered scales, among others, often resulting in an unpredictable and dissonant " outside " sound. His unique legato soloing technique stemmed from his original desire to play the saxophone. Unable to afford one, he strove to use the guitar to create similarly smooth lines of notes. He also became associated with playing an early form of guitar synthesizer called the SynthAxe , a company he endorsed in the s.
