I think this topic has been before.

But here's your answer, just from the top of my head:

Shawn Lane
Frank Gambale
John Petrucci anno 86-93
Dan Rock
Brian McAlpin

There are probably more that could be added to the list...
OrganisedConfusion
This has been done many times but

Chuck Schuldiner
James Murphy
Jerry Cantrell
Jason Becker
Allan Holdsworth
John McLaughlin
Frank Zappa

etc.
DeepRoots
Ummmm thats a long long list for me i think- though some that spring to mind are:
John Petrucci
Guthrie Govan
Paul Gilbert
Muris
Greg Howe
Allan Holdsworth
Gus G
Joe Satriani
Steve Vai
Michael Romeo
Andy Timmons

In no particular order (except the top three are definitely my top three wink.gif )

Eh, I completely forgot about Jason Becker! And Marty Friedman for that matter.

Anyways: Jerry Cantrell was one of the first guitarists I was really in awe of - I used to think he was an amazing guitarist. He still is - for his genre, no doubt about it.

My favorite guitarist is Gus G.. his stuff in Firewind and Dream Evil blows my mind, not because its overly difficult or technical but because imo that is metal, his rythem riffs and his solos can only be described as metal biggrin.gif
