Well, my 5 favourite guitarists and those that influenced me the most are at the moment the following:

Jason Becker (his compositions are amazing, he's always happy, full of joy, he was a virtuoso far greater than Yngwie and Gilbert for his age)
Eddie Van Halen (for being so damn happy!)
Mattrach (for influencing me to start recording my own songs)
David Gilmour (for his godly feeling and tone)
Eric Johnson (for his godly composition Cliffs of Dover)

To simplify, for each of us, our list consists on the definition of our inspirations. I love many others as well, but for me, can't imagine my life without these guys...
