    It’s hard to pick just 5 but I’d have to include the guitarists that have influenced my playing the most.

    Hank B Marvin
    Chet Atkins
    Tommy Emmanuel
    Eric Clapton
    B.B.King

    Can I please also give honourable mention to both George Harrison and Joe Walsh too?

    Cheers
    Jerry Hatrick

    Jimi - points for style certainly.

    I have just two:
    1) STANLEY JORDAN
    Seriously. Look at what all the new generation of players are in to: two-handed playing. And everybody is acting like they're the front runners. Stanley Jordan has been playing like that since the late 70's. It just freaked people out too much to accept it as normal back then, so he was always viewed as a side-show novelty act. Now he looks like a genius and everybody is copy-catting, just like what happened to EVH.

    2) ERIC ROCHE
    He's another guy where these days his unique playing style is being regurgitated as the "next thing" in acoustic guitar, and hipsters are posting their videos on YouTube with people fawning over their virtuosity. Sorry, Eric Roche was doing that stuff before you were born, dude.

    Honorable mention: DICK DALE
    Sorry metal heads, but if it wasn't for Dick Dale, you wouldn't have a platform for very loud, fast playing. He literally invented it.

    1)Maybelle Carter, perhaps the most influential picker of all time.

    2)Lightening Hopkins. So real!

    3)B.B.King. Awesome touch.

    4)Speedy West. He could make steel sing.

    5)John Coltrane.

    Just as I was thinking that these pages are filled with the same old obvious names (not being snarky, my list would include the same old obvious names too), you give us 4 guys I have not heard of. Now I have to do some googling.

    Is Carlos Segovia related to Andres Segovia?

    I always liked Jimmy Paige, but I slightly prefer Jimmy Page. :D
