Okay so here are all the guitar players I currently am listening to:

Andy Timmons
Greg Howe
Joe Satriani
John Petrucci
Santana
Steve Morse
Steve Vai
Vinnie Moore
Guthrie Govan
Rodrigo y Gabriela
Larry Carlton (just started)

(I know some may be missing in your book but I don't like some [like Malmsteen, Loomis])

Bolds are my favorites. smile.gif

I am only interested in instrumental (at least for this thread) guitar music. I want to listen to more fusion guitar players but unfortunately they are not exactly accepted in pop culture and advertising.... sad.gif
I also love the sound of flamenco and classical guitars......

Thanks if you can input!

Tommy Emmanuel
Paco de Lucia

Jason Becker, Dimebag Darrell, Zakk Wylde, even George Lynch! Michael Romeo rules big time! These are my favorites. And I also love Petrucci's solo record!
lcsdds
Andy James.........\m/\m/
DenisN
Mattias IA Eklundh!! - don't forget him
Praetorian
How about a fellow named Stevie Ray Vaughan?! Even if you aren't into blues...give him a listen - he will make your jaw drop!




Here is another guy that will blow you away - John Butler!

relaxenjoy
Paul Gilbert!

This guy's solo album is great and definitely shows off his technical skill and his ability to play many different styles.

It's called Get Out of My Yard. Rusty Old Boat is my personal favourite off of the album.

I also don't think I saw Slash's name up here. His new album was really solid, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

While shred and melodic guitar shred are one thing you requested guitar players that are more fusion oriented. Also maybe with a touch of Flamenco and classical flavors.

First person to come to mind was Al Di Meola. Check some of his stuff out on Youtube. Great guitar work!
Staffy
Allan Holdsworth, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Jim Hall, Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Pat Martino, Scott Henderson, Bill Frisell - speaking of jazz/fusion.
Roy Buchanan, Leslie West, Pat Thrall, Pat Travers, Tommy Bolin, Jeff Healey - speakin of rock/blues

I like the guitar players in the band Skillet. The lead guitarist is Ben. He is really great! The whole band is awesome live! I'm going to see them live May 2, 2010.
