You're just listening now?! Get in that shit!

Heaven or Las Vegas ,Victorialand, and Treasure are my favorites. You should also check out Robin Guthrie's solo work and collaborations with Harold Budd.

Probably going to have a lot of people here disagree with me, but Hip hop. Good hip hop. And as far as for inspiration for guitar playing, that also applies. Hip hop has shown me rhythms and phrasing I never would have known.

By Good Hip Hop, I assume you mean non-commerical Hip Hop?

@TS:
Start getting into Post-Metal, Progressive Metal, Prog Rock, & Post-Rock.

Here's some Post-Metal, some Progressive Metal, some Prog Rock, & Post-Rock . Best part is, 3/4 of those links lead you to free music!

Edit:
Also, check out this thread.

Aside for listening to different genres, why don't you try to emulate different instruments on your guitar? Like, try doing pianoish things on your guitar. Or play drum beats using low notes, high notes, mids and muted strings for different drums.

For jazz, try Wayne Shorter (Speak No Evil and Adam's Apple maybe?) and Esperanza Spalding (she's a modern mix of jazz virtuosity, some soul and pazz). Miles and Coltrane are obvious for a reason, they were geniuses.

Try some of this stuff:







And since you're into the whole virtuoso thing, I'd recommend this artist; she's fantastic:

Some authentic Ska:

Some from it's revival:

None from it's punk variety. Simply not bothered to post it, that's all :P

If you're more into darker music, no problem:

You could also try some 'classic' chiptunes, like this one (deserves to be heard in it's full glory though):

For the rest, all it takes a two hours of YouTubing to find something you'll love. Just try out any genre you might find.

Not necessarily non-commercial hip hop, Eminem is pretty commercial with over 80 million records sold and he's about as good as it gets, but hip hop is a genre not many people take too seriously and a lot of talented artists get ignored because of this. Generally its the independent/underground artists that are giving the most and it's clear in the music.

Also for TS, a lot of good music can't really be put into a single genre, so try not to box yourself in.

The bands that sort of cross multiple genres are generally the most interesting to listen to.
The Chili Peppers and System of a Down are two bands who are excellent at doing this.

You picked the strangest bands for those genres.

Time to unload all kinds of stuff.

I'll add some more choices to the Progressive Metal and Rock categories: Spheric Universe Experience, Cynic, Ayreon, Pain Of Salvation, and for prog rock it'd be: King Crimson, Emerson, Lake, And Palmer, Camel, and Astra.

Now for some other genres.

Trip-Hop: Bonobo, Doctor Flake
Glitch: Mimosa, The Crystal Method
Cool Celtic folk stuff: Any rendition of Turlough O'Carlon's stuff, Lunasa
Flamenco guitar: Armik, Sabicas
Screamo: City Of Caterpillar, Mesa Verde
Really amazing Death Metal: Septic Flesh, Kataklysm, Phlebotomized, At The Gates, Incantation, Intestine Baalism, and finally the last link and, in my opinion, the best band of all. Vehemence

Hope that's enough.
