I grew up on Hendrix, Page and Clapton. Rory Gallagher was also a favorite from that era as was Leslie West. I love what David Gilmour does and Zappa has to be in there somewhere. Peter Green who formed the original Fleetwood Mac is often overlooked. Oh, and John Fahey on the acoustic.

As far as today, lately I've been listening to Chris Duarte and John Mayer.

I can't believe I left Gilmour out of my top 5!

Randy Rhoads just got bumped.......

With rare exception, I'm not a fan of the SMOOTH jazz guys.

But the straight ahead jazz players are just amazing.

Mike Stern and Michael Vincent are good exceptions for the smooth jazz format. And Jeff Golub is more like Carlton in that he's kind of a mildly overdriven jazz/blues hybrid. But for the most part, I like jazz players like Larry Coryell, Grant Green, Wes Montgomery, Mark Whitfield, etc. The true, old-style jazz players.

And if we're throwing James Taylor in, I have to say that one of my greatest acoustic guitar influences is Paul Simon. I also love flatpickers like Norman Blake and Tony Rice.

Paul Simon is great. i grew up listening to the old Simon and Garfunkel records. Their lyrics put most stuff to shame.

All my favorites have been mentioned except RATM -- Tom Morello

Good call. I'd have to add Albert Collins and David Grissom to the mix, too.

'Specially since my nicest guitar is Grissom's signature model PRS.

Also, can't believe I forgot Joe Pass. That dude is sheer genius.

Check out the flatpicking on this video (Norman Blake and Tony Rice). Some of you may not like the vocals, but the playing is stunning:

Apparently I fail at embedding. Can someone repair this debacle?
