So many exordinary guitarist musicians I digg to Heart along w/Jake E. Lee: I like Johnny Lang, Rod Richards/Ray Monette RARE EARTH, Prince, Zakk Wylde, the Founder/guitarist in Symphony X: shame on me his name escapes me, Impellerteri (his name is difficult/hope it's spelled right), etc.,. just to name a few I really admire. Oh, yeah John5 & Ice Dale, too!

Oh yeah Prince is way under-rated as a guitar player, Impelleteri is so fast its scary (almost, lol), I like Johnny Lang's stuff to and John 5 is amazing, very versatile guitar player. Those are good picks Shadow.

Air on Jim Criver Custom Guitar-Electric Guitar Solo
Electric Guitar-Beethoven's 5th Symphony
THERE ARE SOME MORE LIKE THE CANNON ROCK ’’competition’’ (incl Funtwo who has actually played with Joe Satriani…-surfing with the alien uhuhu) I THINK THEY ARE THE ONLY ONEs TODAY WHO HAS ANYTHING WORTHY :wink: …. imo :mrgreen:

There is a guitarist who has inspired Yngwee Malmsteen and is the only one who has mentioned Steve Hackett as an influence +Tony Banks on piano/keyb @

Cool list Moose, never heard of Tommy Emmanuel so I will have to check him out. Shawn Lane was a monster and a great guy. He was shredding in 1976 at 16 before anyone could play like that.

Then Vanhalen 1time live so Malmsteen live 2 times only-Y.M had 3 great singers JLTurner, Marc Boals and JS Soto !
The one and only female great and enterprising guitar player was Kelly Johnson(rip), of the metalband Girlschool. So a great guitarst proofs it when playing live ,,,,,,,,,,,, eh, I don’t like these monotonous shredders its just a matter of repeating chord onto the same frets …aiy aiy ..[/right]
