    Greg Howe is so criminally unknown. This is better than anything Van Halen ever did.

    My new favorite is Justin Johnson. Does amazing blues, rockabilly, just about anything with strings is amazing. Even shovel guitars. Acoustic or electric doesn't matter. He's a master

    His live version of Gravity on Where The Light Is is awesome.

    Over 80 posts and no mention of David Gilmour? This performance is really hard to top: Comfortably Numb Live The incredible depth of emotion through the whole thing and the outro solo - absolutely mind blowing.

    I like King and saw him live a few years back, but Trucks is far more versed in jazz. His band, before his wife joined, covered a bunch of jazz tunes.

    Songlines is IMO the best slide guitar album you can get you ears on. And the rest of the band is incredible. I'll admit that I don't care for the song Crow Jane, but not because they didn't do it well, just don't like the song.

    This duet with Sonny Landreth is enough to make a guy just quit playing.

    Love him.

    A good instructor as well.

    He's one of the best living players. He just gets the stink eye because he plays pop and teenage girls like him, but his career has spanned a bunch of genres and he plays them all as well as anyone.

    There's no accounting for taste, but he has ridiculous chops.

    A few unmentioned favorites: Nuno Bettencourt, Richie Kotzen, Julian Lage, Roy Buchanan, and, of course, the amazing Steven Segal.

    Also, Yngwie Malmsteen, for his first 2 albums at least.

    Also, this isn’t just one guitarist, but Steely Dan had some kind of knack for finding guys that could nail a perfect part on a certain track.
    Larry Carlton did some Steely Dan stuff and is a great solo instrumental guy.

    Not shred per se, but Vito Bratta (White Lion) is an amazing hard rock/metal guy. EVH is my all time favorite in that genre though. He was playing live what guys need 3-4 track to do on an album and the compositions themselves are great even if DLR made every song from a 12 year old boy's perspective. Hagar's era was great, but those albums were mixed horribly.

    If we're listing musical pisses: I was at a wedding that was also attended by John Williams. I wasn't drunk, but I was feeling loosened up enough to start humming the Star Wars theme while pissing three urinals over from him.

    Please tell me you're joking.

    Thatís on a level with Kevin Nealon singing Roxanne to Sting in an elevator in a classic (and oddly for them, funny) SNL skit.

    It was 25 years ago, so I don't recall him giving any particular response (not like either of us were going to even make eye contact in a Boston hotel bathroom), but the bride and groom (he was a family friend of the groom) thought it was funny and seemed fairly confident he wasn't the type to be offended.

    Someone mentioned Leo Kottke, who I like, but not as much as Michael Hedges who is less repetitive and frantic.



    Anyone interested in that type of stuff might want to check out the roster on Candy Rat Records.
