A genius really, not just the amazing technique, but also his striking harmonies, unusual and lovely chord voicings, and a creator of some very beautiful music. Very sorry to hear of his passing yesterday evening.

    I hope it was a painless and quick passing. That's all I pray when I hear such news now.

    Very sad. A very creative and unique artist. I had one of albums and felt like I needed to study theory for another 10 or 15 years before really knowing what was going on. However, I do love his chord voicings, as you mentioned.
    All I heard was that it was a sudden passing. Yes, I hope it was painless too and his family didn't suffer at the time.
