    1) Steve Lukather
    2) Richie Kotzen
    3) Eric Johnson
    4) SRV

    It's such an impossible list to cut down to five. I love so many guitarists for so many different reasons. However for my top 5 I'd say my criteria are this that influence my style the most.

    1. SRV
    2. Eric Johnson
    3. Tommy Emmanuel
    4. John Petrucci
    5. Hendrix

    I could do a top 20 and it'd still be hard. But I can't get enough of them Texas sounds. It's kind of trite but Stevie's playing just moves me in ways that cannot be explained.

    Jeff Beck
    Larry Carlton
    Steve Morse
    Steve Howe
    Michael Bloomfield

    1. Albert Lee
    2. Chet Atkins
    3. Steve Morse
    4. Jimmy Bryant
    5. Chuck Berry

    Very hard (except for the No 1), but I believe that Chuck deserves a place in my list, as I listen to his music sooo often and since he inspired a whole generation what to do with a guitar. His playing, well, it's not on the same technical level as it is with the others, but that's not the only criterion.

    1. David Gilmour. The right notes at the right time with the perfect tone and the perfect vibrato. My hero
    2. Mark Knopfler.
    3. James Hetfield (as a rythem guitar player he just rips)
    4. Steve Vai for taking electric guitar to new places.
    5. Dimebag Darrell. The ultimate shredhead. Solo's, riffs, the man had it all. He's sorely missed...
