Well, my first guitar idol was my dad, he inspired me to pick up the guitar and taught me the first chords since he played in a band himself. I don't really have an idol whose style I wanna copy, I enjoy the playing of many great guitar players. But in every music style there is a guitar player I look up to, be it Satch, Vai, Slash, James Hetfield, Billie Joe Armstrong, El Hefe, Richie Sambora etc etc.

Hendrix started me off....Nuno Bettencourt showed amazing skill with rhythm meets Lead phrasing, then I found Dream Theater......
And most recently Marco Sfogli and Andy James....

I guess SRV was my first guitar Idol, followed very closely by Gary Moore and Albert Collins. Later, as I started listening to music other than blues, I discovered guys like Nuno Bettencourt, John Petrucci, Guthrie Govan, Buckethead, David Gilmour, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Andy Timmons, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Joe Pass and quite a few others, too many to list. As far as who actually influenced the way I play, and whose style I tried to emulate, probably Gary Moore the most, followed by Joe Pass when I play Jazz.

Of course, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin ! Blackmore and Page are the most tasteful to me, the tone of their guitar is crept right under my skin !

I have quite a few guitar idols. laugh.gif
But just counting the more important ones for me it would be:
John Petrucci
Michael Romeo
Alexi Laiho
Misha Mansoor
Chris letchford and travis levrier
Marty Friedman
Dimebag Darrell
Mark Morton
Dave Mustaine.
Joe satriani

It's going to be interesting to see what my own style sounds like a few years from now when i've mastered a few of all their songs. smile.gif

I started out with Funtwo as my guitar idol, covered more in detail on my 3rd Anniversary thread. I also like Vai and Satch, and some of my other favorite bands like Skillet and Red. Ben Kasica used to be with Skillet and he was awesome. I'll have to give his replacement, Seth Morrison a chance. Anthony Armstrong is equally awesome with Red. And a few of you instructors are my idols. wink.gif

I started off with Clapton, Santana, Hendrix and BB King and later on find out about Satch, Eric Johnson, and several jazz players, like Django and Charlie Byrd.

Well, my first guitar idol was Ritchie Blackmore, but my favourite guitar gods, who made me pick up the guitar are Luca Turilli and Marcus Siepen (he also made me love rhythm playing better than soloing).
