Any suggestions/improvements welcomed and can be edited by me into first post!
They deserve there own thread in here. I don't like Syu's overexcessive use of wah. Without it I think he'd be awesome. Im a little biased though too. Im a HUGE Takayoshi Ohmura fan. Syu also doesn't use his pinky which I feel it limits him.
