I see that a lot of great guitarists have been mentioned, so I thought I'd just add one that I couldn't seem to find; Steve Lukather

Almost a shame, really, that he hasn't been mentioned yet :s

The obvious one's: Jimi,Page.Rhodes,Eddie,Clapton & Beck. But I have too give another vote too George Lynch he's got the technical & he's got the blues a perfect match, the most underrated guitarist ever IMO of course.

All the guys listed are great but if you asked most of them who their favorite was, most of them would probably say Michael Landau.

I do believe Chet was the first name on my list. How can a guy that can play two songs at once, not be? :-)

Default Re: Favourite Guitar Player.

Very hard to pick my favourites... Some I'd like to mention and I've borrowed ideas from (have been playing the el. guitar for 22 yrs now, ac. guitar for 4 yrs):

(Electric guitar)
Marty Friedman / Jason Becker (similar style, both geniuses)
Greg Howe (very 'colourful' playing, mixing up various harmonic concepts and crazy tapping stuff)
Joe Satriani (not everything but he has TONE and can grab me with melodies, feeling & unbelievable phrasing)
Vinnie Moore (neo-classical style)
Yngwie Malmsteen (what a show-off but yes, the man has tone/phrasing!)
Nuno Bettencourt (with Extreme)
Michael Romeo (with Symphony X)
Victor Smolski (with Rage)

There are a few hyperspeed metal guitarists which are terrific _technically_ but not really worth mentioning _musically_ so... I won't mention them ;-)

(Acoustic guitar)
Andy McKee (my main influence/source of inspiration)
Antoine DuFour
Petteri Sariola
Jon Gomm (the craziest of all)
