    So this question has been in the back of my head for a while now and the question is, you have the ability to acquire your choice of three guitarists into three fields, sound,skill and feel, so for me I’d pick to sound exactly like Jimi Hendrix to have the same skill as Eric Johnson and to have the rhythmic feel as John Frusciante. Who would you pick for yours?

    This is a great question. Good for thought.

    Sound: Jimmy Page (toss up with Hendrix, but you already chose him so I’ll be different)

    Skill: Tom Bukovac (Jeff Beck if Buk is not well known enough, but Buk’s chord and melodic vocabulary is unreal)

    Rhythmic Feel: Steve Cropper (Actually Hendrix could land here too)

    Hi, @Colestrat

    I would love if I could play close to SRV and EJ level.

    Schenker for the coolness factor too. Anyone that demands Ozzy give him a private jet is alright in my book.
