What was your favorite G3

I have not been in the guitar scene all that long so I was wondering what your favorite G3 was. (I don't even know how many there have been) It seems like most people don't like Yngwie in G3, but I thought he did pretty well. I liked him more than Eric Johnson.

Petrucci, hands down. Probably doesn't hurt that it was the only one I saw live, too.

Petrucci, totally. WhyTF did they release a DVD w/ Malmsteen when JP was way more interesting? Oh well.

At least there's a new DT DVD coming out soon, and a JP solo CD!!

ditto. Screw the DVD, i was hoping for at l;east a CD. did they just not record this one?

I don't know if it's allowable to discuss this here, so mods feel free to clip this out if need be, but does anyone have a really good bootleg of that tour? If i can't get an official CD, that's the next ebst thing... I've got a rather bad one- listenable, but very clearly a "guy in the crowd with a minidisc" recording, and the beginning of one of petrucci's songs is drowned out by an exchange between the friend of mine iw as with who recorded it and the drunks behind us... hey, it was new york.

It is a toss up between EJ and YJM for me.
Petrucci didn't do it for me.
I'm a huge DT fan, but I wasn't impressed with what he came up with for the show. EJ has been a solo artist for years as was YJM, so they both had their own material that had seen airplay, built a following etc.
More gratifying to se IMO.

definately the Eric Johson one. He brought more substance to the bluesy stuff, and his sound was a welcome rest in between Joe and Steve. With Yngwie and JP, it was another guy shredding over chords. That's great, but to be honest, Joe does it with more groove and fun- and Vai does it with more creativity and emotion. So what you're left with is a boring part in the middle that I skip over on DVD. EJ didn't try to be them. He didn't shred non-stop, even though he's got a tremendous amount of skill.

i liked yngwie the least, simply because I don't think he works as well in a jam. Eric Johnson and Petrucci seem a lot more 'generous'. I love EJ's stuff but from what little bootleg material I have I would say Petrucci would be the best for me. He worked so well in the jam sections.
