Ahh... so many to choose from... I think that Satch and Vai are probably the best... but there are so many others to consider! There are many others that I love as well, Gilmour, Santana, Page... and people like Frusciante, who, while he is not necessarily that great of a guitarist skill-wise, he can play amazingly... it's kind of hard to describe. But I guess I would have to go with Satch or Vai. I think that skill is not anywhere near as important as soul... which is why I have problems with players that are too technical, like Paul Gilbert... I mean, he can play very fast, and he definitely knows his scales, but that's about it.

I do have to put marcus as easily the best guitarist I've ever heard who doesn't have his own band or album. Even among the other guitar players of the world he ranks really high. Muris and Gabriel as well! All three of you have really inspired me with what you do.

Others would be, Mark Knopfler who has just a perfect style and tone, Eddie Van Halen who can make anything sound amazing, Gary Moore who has some really touching stuff, Gilmour for his perfect phrasing, Billy Corgan, Jonny Greenwood and Ed O'brien for their epic alternative rock solos and spacey numbers etc, Vai, Satch and Gilbert for achieving amazing technique without losing the music, Slash even if only for the classics he's given us, J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr for having a pretty distinctive virtuoso-grunge kind of style which I find irresistible, Kurt Cobain, Neil Young, John Frusciante, Kelly Jones and Matt Bellamy who all have in common a rather low technique, but amazing rhythmic placement and note choice kind of style. Page, Beck, Hendrix, Clapton and the other 60's-70's blues guitar heroes, Santana and Brian May both have great tone and technique I think, I love their stuff, Kirk Hammett for some really classic stuff I think (even though many would like to disagree), Keith Richards, John Fogerty, Joe Strummer, Buddy Guy and Buddy Holly, Trey Anastasio, Dave Mustaine, I could go on for ever. Can't pick a best biggrin.gif

Exactly ! Like he really let loose when he sent that thing to The Proof when there was a little dis-agreement.

Thanks guys! Right now i am in the process of composing TOTALLY different style than i was planning earlier so it will take me lots of time. I got sick of traditional instrumental-rock in style of Vai and Satch (and other similar musicians) as there are 5 millions guitarists releasing copy/pasted music and nothing new can be heard there.

As you all know of my love towards symphonic/film-score metal i can just tell you that my records will be filled with orchestra stuff (maybe 1 or 2 traditional instrumental rock songs sneak in) and i will share them with you when i feel it is ready to sneak out of my room!

Back on topic, fav guitarists: Rusty Cooley, Luca Turilli, Enric Garcia.

Yep! i love Outworld and i like all of his solo album songs. I guess he's just the guitarist that suits me perfectly! Same goes for Luca Turilli so what i want is to create a combination of those 2 guys.

You guys ever heard of John Kimbrough from the power trio Walt Mink?

Maybe not the best, but my all-around personal favorite.
