Nice video!!! bookmarked and Thanx. Quite a few great guitarists out there. And the genre of music can bring uo some very different names into the field. SRV is in my top realm also. Joey Satriani can be overwhelming. Eddie VanHalen is excellant mechanically. So is Angus, Slash, Hendix..... BB King can be wild as well. Lets not forget Jimmy Paige, Jeff Beck, Clapton, Tommy Iommi, or the often ignored Ingwie Malmsteen. And when you cross genres Chet Akins, Buck Owens, Roy Orbitson, Junior Brown, Roy Clark, Lester Flatts, and Doc Watson can wail. Glen Cambell believe or not is a master axeman and I've seen Him deliver some startling Blues work. It just didnt sell for him. But he has been very much in demand as a studio guitarist. Did I metion Venom on a 12 pack and a couple pain pills in him. OK .... so maybe I'm Not that good but it feels great and thats what counts.

Hi there,
I'm a bit of a guitar player myself.
When the mood strikes, check out www.myspace.com/resinsaliv8
This was my old band from a few years ago, I am recording new material on my own these days to keep me busy.

What about Eddie Van Halen or Alex Lifeson??

Cheers,
Adam

Frampton has some sweet techniques, but needed to be more original in songs IMO.

Satriani always amazes me everytime i hear him.

No one mentioned Santana?
