So, I'm mainly into metal but when I'm improvising and doodling on guitar i kinda fall to the blues side of the thing...and its almost only ZZTop kinda stuff. Can someone throw some bands or guitarrists for me to listen and play their stuff in order to get more variety in terms of sound?

led zeppelin. eric clapton/cream. stevie ray vaughan, kenny wayne shepherd and of course BB King.
