Clearly your teacher doesn't have a clue. Anyone that knows Eddies history knows that he started on piano, pretty much have to be able to read music to play that instrument. And do you seriously think that he doesn't know the fretboard. I don't think that you can achieve the level of mastery that he has and not know the fretboard. Your teacher is trying to impress you by degrading another player that has achieved a status that he never will.

Eddie was trained as a concert pianist. He can read music, trust me.

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

If all the the coke hasn't brainwashed him yet, that is.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Even if he has the ability to read music or not, he did something to music that hasn't been done in almost 30 year and probably never will again. For the last 29 years, there's been EVH rip off's being spit out faster than you can blink, and Eddie always remains the original.

Plus you don't have to be able to read music to be good. I imagine every player can read tabs, but you don't need sheet music for guitar.
