On electric, I either sound like a cross between Eric Johnson, Carl Verheyen and David Gilmour or a cross between Brett Garsed and Steve Vai (without all the nonsense), but funnily enoughit's either one combination or the other, there's two fairly separate styles there.

On acoustic, I've been told I sound like Michael Hedges and Eric Johnson.
My name is Tom, feel free to use it.
