Well, Britt, you are correct that that is one of Steve's pieces he's made his own, but I've only seen him do it on two different occassions really. I do agree that it's a go-to gadd piece and EVERYONE TRIES IT AND PUTS IT ON THE INTERNET and it is very annoying. I'm not saying what he did was unique, but it was so outstandingly musical compared to what Dave and Vinnie were doing. And as far as I know, that was the first time that approach had been taken to a solo at that concert. It's just so much more epic and developed than what Dave and Vinnie were doing. It showed that he had about 20 extra years of playing music more than Dave and Vinnie.
