I've found this question in another site and I thought that it would be interesting to discuss it here.

Some of the answers there were Ron Thal, Buckethead, Shawn Lane, Bireli Lagrene, Tommy Emanuelle, among others.





What do you think?

I always saw Ron Thal as the Punk Rock brother of Govan! I would say they are pretty much in similar terms command wise.
Musically different though.

He certainly has an awesome command of the instrument. Also he does everything in a very unique sounding way. He doesn't sound like other players imho,
he always sound like Guthrie. There are wads of great players around, but he truly amazing. Something to aspire to no doubt smile.gif
