Shawn was a monster player, and seemed like a nice, humble person.
When I first started learning about him I thought he was all shred, but once I dug a bit deeper I found that I was wrong. There's much to discover there.
There's also a bootleg out there of him jamming some Beatles tunes with Paul Gilbert - good stuff.
He does overdo them a little but I also like those videos of him playing Hendrix tunes.
