David Gilmour ... but there are others as well ...
Man, that is tough, but I'm going with Paul Gilbert.
NILS LOFGREN w/ gary moore a close 2nd.
Tony Iommis crunch,Michael Schenkers leadsound together with Eric Johnsons clean sound.
I'd like to have the vision, versatility and skill of Mike Keneally. Not to play just like him, just to be able to feel like I could play whatever it was I was trying to get out.
I'd have to say.... Carlos Santana.
I'd have to go with EVH's rhythm and Michael Schenker's lead.
And PRS should try to get a HB in his hands.
Kenney Burrell mixed with Jeff Beck oh yeah bring on:adore:
But i do think Guthrie would sound great in a PRS from everything that I heard from this guy he loves mahogany and the cutting middles - definetly Paul and him should have a conversation.
Gary Moore, hands down.
I bought his "Melodic Control" VHS (!!!!) tape when I was in my teens for like $65!!! Remember those "Star Lick's" video tapes?! Learning is so free now!
Monotonic as I am, I'd like to be like Michael Akerfeldt. Not just with the guitar sound and the playing skill, but also his vocal skills (including growling) and composition / arrangement creativity... man, am I a fanboy :vroam:
Tosin is a monster. Their first show was actually in STL. Their next time through they claimed to be filming a live DVD. I need to look and see if it ever got released. I was at both shows. I will be seeing them again here in STL on Saturday. Meshuggah headlining. :rock:
