LOL!! Mega-MEGA-ha-ha-ha!! I've always called that style of soloing note selection "diddla-diddla". If you play it reasonably quickly, it sounds to non-guitarists like it's hard, when it isn't. "Even" Jimmy Page was known to indulge in it sometimes, seemingly as filler. One thing I've always loved about Alvin is his impeccably brilliant note selection. He doesn't play meaningless meanderings.

Uhhhh Toni, wasn't some guy named "Fark Narner" in Ringo's band? I think that alone is why Alvin would turn it down! On G.P., of course! Althought he'd have to learn all those near-impossible to play GFR songs
