Wow that dropped out pretty quick. Obviously I love Hendrix, Jabbs, Randy, etc but I’ll never actually play their stuff :)

And a shout out to Lloyd Spiegel, my latest favourite guitarist.

Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes are favourites as well but they are heavily influenced by Duane Allman so he gets the nod.

They all made/make me want to play guitar. And I'd love to play like any or all of them, but that ain't gonna happen. :(

My biggest influences aren't all probably my top 5 guitarists, but they are what shaped my playing as I've learnt most of my fingerings and shapes and picking techniques from them. (never bothered learning all of Tom Morello's effects though...fuck that).

Tony Iommi
Tom Morello
Jimmy Page
James Hetfield
Adrian Smith

I’ll admit I have never heard of him ?!

Jake E Lee ... made me want to get a guitar
Randy Rhoads ... made me want to actually learn how to play it
Warren Demartini .... tone, soul, speed
Tony Iommi ... riffs riffs riffs
Yngwie malmsteen/Richie Blackmore ... both so unique. To this day no one sounds like blackmore
