    The top comment on that video cuts like a knife.

    "Great video and a succinct takedown of YouTube's most algorithmically over-promoted charlatan.
    Beato doesn't know what he's talking about in most videos. He's not a music expert (he only knows hits), he doesn't have a musical ear (anyone can learn pitch; he doesn't because he's lazy), and he's a total nobody in the annals of '60s/'70s/'80s rock history, despite the claims of Beato bros that he's a "legend in the annals of classic rock" (his earliest credits on Discogs date to 1992). Pre-YT, he was nothing more than a low-rent, small-time grunge producer. There are far more knowledgeable musos and rock-library minds on YouTube than Beato.
    The Beato syndrome merely shows that YT over-promotion can turn the biggest philistines into "gods," especially when the audience is a bunch of ailing boomers who've been kicked in the head too many times."

    OUCH!

    Very nice indeed and ridiculously difficult lick by Allan. Kudos to Rick Beato for his praise on Allan Holdsworth and for the attempt to describe the work of a true genius.
