Alex Hunter: an uncommon chord

Alex Hunter says:
Me playing the intro of one of my favorite Holdsworth songs. I play all the way up to the part where you start improvising. I stopped because it probably wouldn't sound too good improvising over silence. (No Backing) Let me know what you think, or if you have any questions.
