Does anyone know if he is self-taught?

Or did he have guitar lessons?

Stupid question, i know, but can someone please answer it?

He took private lessons, studied briefly at Berklee, and also studied his ass off on his own.
He studied with Joe Satriani for many years, went to Berklee College of Music for a while, and I'd imagine Frank Zappa taught him a thing or two as well.

So yes, he received instruction from world-class musicians. His personal drive and studying was just as important, though.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.
Oh yeah, i forgot that he had lessons with Joe Satriani!

Thanks for all your answers as well
