What guitarist's styles are you blending into your style...

I have a couple of them at the moment..

Gilmore - for his feeling and phrasing
hammett - for his fast pentatonic runs
Van Halen - for all his pinch harmonic and harmonic playing

not much into sweeps and tapping yet,
Id be happy just blending these two styles into mine

Rob Barret-I love his riffs, so off kilter and heavy.
Doug Cerrito-His playing is so technical and precise, it blows my mind.
Jon Levasseur-He does things with the guitar I cant even comprehend, Just amazing at lead and rhythm.
Thats about it for right now.

i dont really have a style yet since im learning alot about guitar but guitarists that influence me the most would be:
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez- i like the unique style of his playing and as a composer i think he is brilliant
David Gilmour- his use of phrasing and emotion have always facinated me
Jimi Hendrix- i think everyone was influenced by him tongue.gif
Thomas Erak- i like his style as well he very intense and melodic at the same time.

I have to Add Pat O'Brian, He is one of the best lead players ever, the way all his solos fit the songs is amazing.

I try to mold my playing style from a lot of diffrent players; I want my rythms to be ultra tight and my solos singing but also shreddy...

Rythm players:

Rob Flynn: Unconventional style
Will Adler/Marc Morton: Tightness
Dimebag Darrel: For obvious reasons
James Hetfield: Downstroking and chromatic riffs
Scott Ian: Precision while moving arround
Max Cavalera: Unconventional, simple but effective riffs
John Schaffer: Right hand precision and control
...and just about any Thrash Metal guitarist

Lead players:

Michael Amott: Perfect balance between feeling and shred
Syu: Sense for melodies
Zakk Wylde: Pentatonic shred
Gus G: Perfect phrasing
Jeff Loomis: Sweeps and scale use
Slash/ Gary Moore/ Michael Schenker: Feel

I'm trying to get some kind of mix of Hendrix, Mikael Åkerfeldt, Buckethead (his soft stuff), Jeff Beck, Paul Gilbert and my guitar teacher.

Edit: I forgot Robin Trower, Robert Fripp and Steve Howe.

Most important of those influences I listed are probably Hendrix, Åkerfeldt, Fripp and Howe,

Great thread!
I've been influenced by Satriani for a long time for his legato.
But recently I'm trying to get more into Fusion type phrasing.
My life changed after hearing Guthrie Govan... :-/

I also agree it's a great thread. When I pick fast it's definitely Paul Gilbert. My phrasing is similar to Vinnie Moore. For bluesy feel I am thinking of Robben Ford, SRV and Gary Moore. There are some others that are worth mentioning, like Eric Clapton and David Gilmore.

Satch, Vai....for their legato tapping and tremolo use. In the last 6 months or so it has been Muris and Emir.....I'm a long ways from using their influence though. Damn AP!!!!!!! tongue.gif laugh.gif

Indeed \m/ \m/

Also I'm very inspired by Esa Holopainen of Amorphis. His melodic phrasing is amazing.

My main guitar influences? hmm...

Nergal and Seth from Behemoth: Fast riffs and their solo sound
Johan Ericson and Daniel Arvidsson from Draconian: Melodic/Sad sounding leads, clean/acoustic guitar, and heavy riffs
Mikael Akerfeldt: once again riffs are heavily influenced by his playing
Emppu Vuorinen: Tone and the awesome way the guitar follows along with the orchestral parts of nightwish songs

im sure theres a few more i havent listed

Gary Moore for his awesome ferocious picking style and phrasing, SRV for his pentatonic blues riffs and shuffle rythyms and Ivan Milenkovic's masterful legato runs!
If i could master these i couldnt care less about tapping, sweeps or anything else!!!

I want to, and strive to play like

Kirk Hammet early Metallica approach of leads and solo`s
Zakk Wylde pentatonic in your face like style
Dimebag Darrel tight playing
Slash for his great soul and feel in playing
James Hetfield really envy his downpicking biggrin.gif
And ofcourse I dream of inventing riffs as suberb as mr Iommi
And I want to play the acoustic like Stanley Samuelsen (a Faroese folk musician)
